R. Kelly is officially no longer welcomed in Philadelphia. CBS Philly reported that the City Council chose to stand with the disgraced singer’s alleged victims and ban him from the city.
“This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support,” Philly city council member Helen Gym said. “This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.”

Following the release of Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly series, many former collaborators and friends swiftly renounced the singer and apologized for ignoring the early warning signs of his sexual misconduct.
The “Happy People” singer was dropped from RCA Records and is currently looking for a distributor for his upcoming album. The search for him is going to be tight because he’s currently under federal investigation for allegedly attempting to book a flight for one of his alleged victims.
