The caption of the picture clearly had some apologetic tones, explaining that he has a show to attend in Illinois, and he would appreciate that the media goes easy on him. He said since he cannot get the big shows right now, this is the only way for him to make money, and if he is seen in the club with drinks, having fun, everyone should just take it easy.

Arriving at the event an hour and 30 minutes past midnight, he was said to perform for just 28 seconds and went about taking pictures with attendees for about 30 minutes.

The event was attended by just 100 people, and the nightclub is said to be able to host 450 people. The fee for the event was $100 but was slashed by half the amount when R Kelly arrived.

Apart from this, a lot of his abusers and accusers came out to testify against him, with the news making rounds in the media.
