(Newser) – Sexual abuse allegations be darned: R. Kelly is not shying away from the limelight. Despite the fact that decades of sexual misconduct accusations against the singer have lately been the subject of lengthy exposés, a damning docuseries, legal action, a boycott, business problems, and even a call-out by his own daughter, Kelly announced Tuesday he is going on tour, ETOnline reports. He tweeted a tour poster that indicates "The King of R&B" will be heading to Australia, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka. The replies are full of supporters cheering the news, as well as the occasional detractor (one sample: "No UK tours!!!!! #pedosnotallowed"). ET notes that Kelly has performed since the aforementioned docuseries aired, singing to a packed Chicago nightclub on Jan. 8. (More on his woes here.)
