Permit refused for concert set to be hosted by R. Kelly amid allegations

Springfield — Illinois officials say a concert in Springfield that was to be hosted by R. Kelly cannot take place in the wake of new sexual misconduct allegations against the R&B star.

Illinois Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Albert told the Chicago Tribune that the application for the Spring Break Jam in April was denied on Thursday because of security concerns following protests outside Kelly's Chicago studio this week.

A tip that Kelly was holding two women against their will prompted Chicago police to visit his residence on Friday in Chicago's Trump Tower.

Officers interviewed Kelly and the women but found no evidence of wrongdoing.
