Ne-Yo scores major money from getting kicked off R.Kelly tour

A Los Angeles judge has ordered Kelly's promoter to pony up $700,320 to Ne-Yo.

Superior Court Judge Malcolm Mackey made his default judgment after Georgia-based Rowe Entertainment refused to respond to the lawsuit

Per his suit, Ne-Yo was supposed to earn $785,000 on the 25-date jaunt, but the 25-year-old performer was canned by Rowe after the second show on Nov. 15 and only received a fraction of the contracted amount. At the time, the promoter blamed the dismissal on Ne-Yo's camp for not completing the proper paperwork. But Ne-Yo insisted it was because fans reacted better to his opening set and R.Kelly became mad.

Kelly was not named as a defendant in the suit.

My boy C-Hyphen put me onto the whole R.Kelly/Ne-Yo lawsuit over on Highbrid Nation and I kinda wanted to just see what others were saying.

It seems to me that Ne-Yo was better off getting kicked off the tour. Got all the money and didn't have to work for it. But what's with Kelly? How come this guy is always having issues on tours. Remembers the mace in the eyes things when he was on tour with Jay-Z?

Of course I remember that incident. Look up NeYo on the side of post around Dec and you will see my take. Kellz has issues with grown men bcuz he can't control them like the little girls. He even tries to get radio stations not to play Joe! Look that up also posted in August....
