A member of rapper Jay Z's entourage released pepper spray at R. Kelly during a joint concert at Madison Square Garden, Kelly's publicist said. The spraying happened about an hour into Friday night's show, when Kelly walked onstage and said he saw two people in the audience waving guns, publicist Allan Mayer said.That's normal.
Kelly abruptly stopped his set around 9:30 p.m. while MSG security employees searched for weapons.
Finding none, guards told Kelly it was safe to continue performing, Mayer said. But as the singer was making his way back to the stage, a man in Jay Z's entourage apparently miffed that Kelly interrupted the show sprayed him and two of his bodyguards in the face.
Hey, it's better than what R Kelly sprays people with.
