R. Kelly has found himself at the centre of a bizarre concert scandal after fans were allegedly duped into attending a Louisiana party hosted by the R&B veteran, only for an impersonator to take the stage instead. Attendees at the Ced's All Black Affair event in Monroe, Louisiana on Saturday night (26Oct13) were left outraged after claiming the man promoted as the Ignition hitmaker was just a local doppelganger attempting to lip-sync his way through the show. He was booed offstage by angry devotees just minutes into the gig and they have now bombarded event promoter Cedric Johnson with demands for refunds. Johnson has promised to explain all later on Monday (28Oct13), but the incident has been further complicated by the fact that Kelly's official website also lists the Monroe Civic Center appearance as part of his tour. The singer has yet to comment on the controversy.
