Controversial hip hop artist R Kelly has today claimed he will be head to Australia "soon", despite a previous tour scheduled for this year falling through.

In a post shared to social media today, the US R&B artist uploaded a tour poster which reads 'Coming soon to Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka', accompanied with a caption reading "New tour alert" and "See y’all soon!" See the post below.

The announcement comes just months after an Australian tour was announced last year and was met with a wave of criticism and questions. Promoters, Big Music Tour, subsequently cancelled the tour.

Following December's tour announce, one venue named on the run claimed it had never booked the show. Shortly after, the controversial R&B artist himself slammed the announce as "fake".

The Music has reached out to promoters, Flamingo Dreamz, to confirm details of the tour.

Kelly has recently been the focus of the Surviving R Kelly documentary, a six-part Lifetime series that addressed alleged sexual misconduct and claims against the artist, featuring "interviews with several of Kelly’s accusers, people formerly in his inner circle, journalists, and even his own family members".

Since the airing of the documentary, the Fulton County District Attorney's Office in Atlanta has opened an investigation and called on victims related to the allegations to come forward.

Artists including Lady Gaga, Chance The Rapper and Phoenix have since publicly apologised for collaborating with Kelly on past works.
