The New Orleans show was scheduled for Friday, Aug. 11 at the UNO Lakefront Arena. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase, according to the website.

The Baton Rouge show, scheduled for August 12 at the Raising Cane's River Center, was cancelled due to "unforeseen circumstance" according to the venue.

While he continues to deny all allegations, sources further reveal that the Chicago-reared crooner has hired a crisis team amidst the controversy, bringing on Monique Pressley, known prominently as Bill Cosby's lawyer, to handle the situation.

R. Kelly was recently accused of running a sort of cult where he held women against their will, dictating how they live. Mensch in turn referred Billboard to R. Kelly's publicist Trevian Kutti, who has not responded to a request for comment.
