R. Kelly is planning an overseas tour, but Australian lawmakers aren't here for it.

Though no dates or venues are now listed on his website, the musician does have events scheduled in Germany this April 2019.

In spite of literally everything else going on in his life right now, R. Kelly apparently still has the absolute nerve to not only try and announce an upcoming tour, but an upcoming tour of Australia to boot.

Flamingo Dreamz, the event promotions company reportedly behind the tour, has not yet responded to requests for comment from multiple publications.

A few days ago, it was announced that the City of Philidelphia has come together to collectively and symbolically "mute" R. Kelly.

Like many similar startups, Aurora is focused on developing a driverless system rather than producing full-fledged cars. Bagnell was a founder member of Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Centre and Uber's Advanced Technology Centre.

As The Blast points out, the interesting part about the announcement is not only that it comes less than a month after Surviving R. Kelly aired, but that he initially denied a similar worldwide tour announcement in December.

Kelly has had numerous allegations of sexual abuse, including making child pornography, made against him over the years, which recently hit headlines again with the release of the six-part documentary Surviving R. Kelly. Kelly's music has also been banned on a number of radio stations around the country. "There are strong provisions under the Act to refuse or cancel a visa where a person is found not to be of good character", the spokesperson said.

The country has previously denied visas to Chris Brown and Floyd Mayweather, the paper reported.

The documentary featured interviews with women that have accused Kelly of sexual abuse and harassment and industry insiders detailing the "open secret" of Kelly's abuse. "You for sure aren't welcome here in Australia buddy?" another tweet read.

Although Kelly has always been trailed by allegations of sexual misconduct with younger women, the singer has become the focus of renewed scrutiny since the six-part docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" premiered on Lifetime in early January.
