R Kelly took to social media to ask the media to "take it easy on him" as doing live perfomances and events are essentially the only way he's getting paid.
The serial sexual predator gave a 28-second performance and spent about half an hour more with fans who paid $50-$100 to see him at a club in Springfield, Illinois.
According to sources, there were about 100 people at the 450 person capacity club and R Kelly performed for a record 28 seconds. The majority of his time was spent taking selfies and photos with fans and schmoozing with his supporters. Some fans complained of feeling ripped off by the short performance even though they can separate art from the artist.
