R. Kelly Representative Denies Look-alike At Concert

It was the real deal...
As we previously reported, R. Kelly fans are demanding refunds after a show in Monroe, Louisana which they claim was headlined not by Kelly, but an impostor.
Pitchfork reports that a representative for R. Kelly said that the person was Kelly himself. He said the event was billed as featuring an "appearance" from R. Kelly, not a full concert.
One fan interviewed by local news station KNOE said that the impostor lip-synced for four minutes. The photo given showed a man in a hoodie, Bulls hat and sunglasses. Promoter Cedric Johnson told KNOE that he "got duped" and will offer refunds. He later denied sending the text. It's still unknown if refunds will be given.
R. Kelly's next album, Black Panties, will be released on December 10 through RCA.
