The singer reportedly developed appendicitis in Miami after a Super Bowl appearance, but is in good condition.
R. Kelly has been hospitalized for appendicitis in Miami, according to his lawyer, and was operated on the same day. He is in good condition, but the hospitalization will force him to miss a Wednesday court date in his child pornography case.
Kelly, 40, was charged with 14 counts of child pornography in 2002, after he allegedly videotaped himself having sex with a girl, who prosecutors say was as young as 13.
According to Asst. Cook County State’s Attorney Shauna Boliker, Kelly was in Miami to perform at a Super Bowl party. He was scheduled to appear before Criminal Court Judge Vincent Gaughan for a status hearing.
Under a ruling by Judge Gaughan, Kelly is legally allowed to travel out-of-state. Prosecutors were informed he would miss the court appearance on Tuesday.
