Politicians in Australia could ban R Kelly from entering the country.


Earlier this week, R Kelly announced that he would be embarking on a tour of Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

The performer, who was the subject of  a recent documentary which examined the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct which have been levelled at him over the course of his career, shared the update on his social media platforms.

Unsurprisingly, the news was met with huge backlash, and politicians in Australia have since called for a ban, which would prevent the 52-year-old from entering the country.

“Labor strongly supports the refusal or cancellation of visas of non-citizens on character or criminal grounds,” a statement read.

While the Department of Home Affairs in Australia refuses to comment on individual cases, they have in the past barred high-profile individuals, including Chris Brown and Floyd Mayweather.
