Fantasia Slams R. Kelly For Walking Off Stage; Calls Him “Disrespectful”

Fantasia and R.Kelly were both scheduled to perform at the Blake Hotel to a sold out crowd of r&b lovers, however, things didn’t quite go as planned.

When R&B legend R. Kelly took to the stage to perform he stopped after only two songs (‘Bump N Grind’ and ‘Slow Jam’) and left the building without explanation.

Get the full scoop after the jump and sound-off below.

Allegedly, the hit maker was miffed that standard contract stipulations between himself and the promoter were not fulfilled including: hotel arrangements, transportation to the venue, as well as the agreed upon compensation. While Kelly’s actions no doubt left his fans disappointed, he cannot be faulted for not living to his end of the bargain if the promoter(s) did not live up to theirs. This is a business after all.

Fantasia on the other hand was not so sympathetic towards Trey Songz‘s favorite artist’s antics of which she called “disrespectful”. The ‘Cornbread & Collard Greens’ singer told concert goers, “[I’m not going to give] you half of a song, I’ve come to give you your money’s worth. I found it a little disrespectful, but things don’t happen like that especially in my city.” If taken the time to read the fine print, Fantaisa would have realized that Kells was booked as the co-host of the event with Jermaine Durpi, not as a featured performer like herself.

Via Dupri’s YouTube account, “R. Kelly ain’t say nothing but 6 lines and got the hell on’ so somebody must have told R.Kelly. R.Kelly said ‘I don’t see nothing wrong with it and got the f**k out.”

Both artists made valid points from their opposing perspectives, however, perhaps maybe the fallout of Kelly’s actions could have been handled better by all parties involved.

    “[I’m not going to give] you half of a song, I’ve come to give you your money’s worth.”

    Meaning, she saw the money. They didn’t.

    She should have kept it as quiet as the check she got.

    trying to get some attention aint we fantasia……please sit down somewhere with ur home-wretching self.

    Fantasia always do more than she is supposed to!!! He should have took that up with the promoter after his part of the show.

  6. Boo! March 6, 2012

    Fantasia needs to shut her ratchet ass up! Of course she didn’t know what she was talking about, b**** couldn’t even read the flyer for herself. I really can’t with barefootasia, she’s so embarrassing.

    I doubt Fantasia reads her contracts good. The promoter was wrong though for not having the event clearly labeled hosted by RKelly. The promoter was probably trying to be slick and have RKelly payed as a promoter and have the audience expect him to perform too leaving him with no other option but to perform with a lot less money. Unfortunately the promoter’s ghetto tacticts backfired when you are dealing with street smart people.

    Fantasia always trying to be preachy and dont know what the half hell she talkin bout. I’m sick of her always talking about “folk mindin dey business” …she seem to be actin like “folk” now.
    What she need is several seats and to do the J. Hud diet, and then comeback and blow us away.

    Chris Brown deserved that well earned and long overdue Grammy last month and I’m a Kelly, Ledisi, Kelly Price fan. F.A.M.E .was just that CD period! if you want to be upset directed it at the Grammy commitee who cut down the Grammy categories from 109 to 78. There use to be two seperate R&B categories for traditional (R.Kelly, Jill scott etc) and contemp (Chris Brown, Usher, Ne-yo etc)! Now they all vie for 1 spot! It’s sickening….

  11. mobwife March 6, 2012

    Ta -Ta, sweetie you like Country music’s w**** Maranda Lambert (Blake was married while she was screwing him) , should never speak on being disresepectful! It is disresepctful to sleep with another woman’s husband and damn disresepectful for your “baby daddy” to be a MARRIED MAN!

    Kelly is a 20 yr vet if he walked off he had a damn good reason for doing so. Mind your business, put your shoes on and pass the “Cornbread & Collard Greens’! 🙂

    Sorry but RKelly may be a 20+ year vet but he’s had his troubles as well urinating on kids and all.

    IF R.Kelly was suppose to host the party he would have stayed longer at least?

    I agree they BOTH could have handled it better.

  14. itsme March 6, 2012

    Fantasia is right…people paid for a show and you gave them 2 minutes…WTF is that?….

  15. BadGirl23 March 6, 2012

    ***Dead*** @Jasmine’s first sentence lmao I’m gone!!!

  16. Love Letter March 6, 2012

    MANtasia should’ve choked on those pills. STUPID B****!

    Did she even read her own contract for this event? Oh wait, she can’t read! MANtasia was the only one listed as a PERFORMER. R. Kelly was never paid to perform at this event. He was only paid to make an appearance and he did that. So what’s the problem?

    • bebe January 20, 2013

      STFU yu f***** hatin ass b****. CALM yur ass down

  17. Love Letter March 6, 2012

    @The Truth

    What does that have to do with anything? Specifically, this situation? and FYI, that was no ‘kid’. F*** out of here.

    There was no issue with R. Kelly at this event. He made his appearance and left.

  18. Alexander March 6, 2012

    There wasn’t any issue other than Fattasia not reading her contract! ops she cannot read…
    R. Kelly was only there to make an appearance as the co-host of the hotel show!
    Now if they intended for him to sing one hour and no less R. Kelly would’ve obligated that show!

    Fattasia needs to sit her warp ass behind down and leave her shoes on because the room got viral when she took them shoes off speaking from her mouth of s*** & p***! We all know she is ahting on R Kelly so no pun intended H**!

  19. Girrrl March 6, 2012

    Fantasia is the LAST person—-and I really mean the LAST one who needs to talk about respect or being respectful. This chick just disrespected my eyes with that velvet outfit. She disrespected herself when she got with Antuan Cook. She disrespected that fetus when she had an abortion over a man. She disrespected the Lord when she tried to kill herself.

    Let me stop….

  20. Alexander March 6, 2012

    Preach it! Good side that R Kelly’s vocals is untouchable! Where is Aaron Hall?
    What happened to Trey?
    Fattasia needs a c*** up inside her nasty ass and a huge Bo-zack shoved inside her mouth!

    All I have to say is DAMN with everyone dissing Fantasia!!! LOL!!! Anyways. Kells is in the right, the promoter should’ve done his job properly in order for the concert to go smoothly, I’m sorry if Fantasia wants to be in the game, she needs to learn the business side of the industry when it comes to promoting and booking concerts. 1. An artist takes alot of time to make a tracklist to perform for the night. 2. Everything has to be on cue, no mistakes. 3. Making sure the playlist is going the way it’s going for the night. She needs to understand that. Also from me reading the story R. Kelly wasn’t the forerunner in the concert, he was just a co-host with other artists, so he wasn’t gonna be on long anyways!!! Fantasia needs to relax and learn the business side of how a promoter works!!!

  23. JER March 7, 2012

    that’s pitiful, whatever was going on in the BUSINESS side of the performance. How disrespectful to the fans, the audience. Last I check, a hotel is prob the only venue R. Kelly can book so he shoulda taken advantage of it

  24. Dante March 7, 2012

    Well imma say I agree with both parties Kells should have made it known by saying “Im not Supposed to be here performing but imma give yall a lil sumthing” and that would have cleared up any confusion!!Now to all yall haters who keep saying Fantasia Cant read here is somethin for yall to read!!Yall can Kiss FANTASIA”S ENTIRE ASS!! Dumb ignorant ass folk she CAN READ

  25. lolmygod March 7, 2012

    The shade in this write up. Trey songz favorite singer, the collards and cornbread artist, If fanny would have read the fine print.

    lmao judasuhoih fwejbsifdisdfbfb

  26. blaze March 7, 2012

    She needs to respect the King!

  27. TIFF March 7, 2012

    Fantasia is my GIRL but i’m an R. Kelly fan FIRST and she tripping right here. he was handling business and i’m sure if she went over or read her contract she would have left just like he did. again Tasia is my girl but she need to quit and focus on her life issues.

  28. tas March 8, 2012

    yall need to get off my girl because she is right people payed big money for that concert even if the promoter was wrong fans come first

  29. Castor Troy April 5, 2013

    You know i’ve always try to respect people that i’ve met. Fantasia Need’s to put on some Tennis shoes & JOG her fat a** somewhere, And get HOOKED back ON PHONIC’s So she can understand CONTRACTS !! Mantasia also is PROBABLY THE BEST HELMENT GIVER we ever met in the NC. When we go there, She’ll always get a Text from the FELLAS FROM DC….(wink wink) SHE knows whats up ! lol….We’ll always remember that Charolette BOBCAT GAME, Then going to her place for the nite !!!!

  30. KALLII April 21, 2013

    RUDE. So what if the girl don’t wanna wear her shoes. why don’t people go laugh at the handicapped man while they’re at it, dissing the girl for not being able to read? No class. S***. People should get what they pay for dot, dot, done. Unless there was some emergency, walking off the stage is uncalled for. Hey I don’t make R.Kelly or Fantasia type of money so, this don’t matter anyways. 2 cents keep the change!
