His ticket sales have suffered since the families came out to BuzzFeed with the allegations. Concert dates in Dallas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La., were canceled due to low ticket sales — as fallout from the controversy. A source told Page Six, “The promoter sent an e-mail to R. Kelly’s team and told them they were set to lose $400,000 if sales didn’t pick up fast. They canceled.”
