Wherever R. Kelly goes, drama follows!

The accused pedophile has fired NeYo as one of the headliners on his “Double Up” tour.

R. Kelly’s camp reportedly blamed the lack of a signed contract as the reason for removing NeYo from the line up.

NeYo’s publicist has released the following cryptic statement:

“Yesterday, Shaffer Smith aka Ne-Yo was informed that he was being dropped from the rest of the R Kelly tour after delivering two sensational performances. Entertainment reporters, music critics, bloggers, fans, and concert goers all agreed that Ne-Yo’s performances brought the heat; but maybe it brought too much heat.

He’s written hit songs for Beyonce “Irreplaceable” and Rihanna “Unfaithful” (spending a combined 19 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100), said Tango, Ne-Yo’s business partner and manager. He’s written songs slated to be on Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Lionel Richie, and Enrique Iglesias’ new albums. In a recent article in Ebony Magazine, the king of pop, Michael Jackson, referred to him as one of the artists that impresses him most. The fans were really feeling his performances. He’s good; maybe he’s too good ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ that’s the problem.”

It seems like d├â┬⌐j├â┬á vu ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ didn’t R Kelly have drama on his last tour. R Kelly’s camp sited the lack of a signed contract as the reason for removing Ne-Yo from the line up.

“I don’t understand their actions because I was rehearsing, doing media, promoting the tour, and performing,” said Ne-Yo. “In my opinion, I was doing everything possible to make the tour a success. I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get. You know right away if they are feeling you; and they were really feeling our show.”

Ne-Yo expressed genuine concern regarding not having the opportunity to complete the tour. He wanted all of his fans and supporters to be able to see him live. “To my fans and ticket holders ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ I apologize if you are disappointed.”

It’s Jay-Z vs. R. Kelly all over again!

Whose side are U on? NeYo’s or Kelly’????
