The embattled singer revealed Tuesday he will be performing in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, although no dates have been announced.

Kelly heads out on the overseas tour less than a month after the documentary, which featured Kelly's accusers, relatives, families, and industry insiders detailing more than 25 years of allegations against the singer that include physical, emotional and sexual abuse of women and underage girls.

Kelly has two tour dates in Germany scheduled for April, which are promoted by the German company live-entertainment and ticketing company Eventim. In case you were wondering, the company bringing the tour here is Flamingo Dreamz, which you can contact here if you felt so inclined.

Australia has been pretty harsh on artists touring that are embroiled in controversy.

The scandal surrounding R. Kelly hasn't died down but it clearly hasn't prevented him from trying to make his coins.

'While I love my unbelievable fans in the Australian region I am NOT involved in this tour nor do I have knowledge of it, it's promoters etc, ' R. Kelly tweeted.

But at the same time, Apple could intentionally be adding another midrange option (well, midrange for Apple) to boost sales. Apple's compact smartphone, the iPhone SE had a mixed response from the critics and users, mostly because of its price tag.

Making headlines: In Surviving R. Kelly, the Chicago native is accused of running an "abusive cult" over several years at his homes in IL and Georgia, and of allegedly preying on dozens of young women.

R. Kelly has denied all allegations, and has said he plans to sue everyone involved in the documentary, including the alleged victims. Kelly, who was famously acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, has largely avoided prosecution for years over numerous allegations.

Most recently, the singer was been symbolically banned from Philadelphia, where city councillors voted unanimously to not welcome him into the city.

Most of Kelly's scheduled concerts in the U.S. in the past couple of years have been cancelled due to public outcry and/or poor ticket sales.
