R. Kelly is back on social media and is asking for one thing; which is for the media to “take it easy” on him as he was scheduled to work an event on Saturday night. The singer made this request amid the sexual abuse allegations against four women.

Kelly posted a video on his social media saying the following, “Yo, this you boy Kells and I got an event to do tonight in Springfield, Illinois, so I want the media to take it easy on me, man. This is how I got to get paid for right now, so if you see me in the club, with a couple of drinks in my hand, and chilling, please take it easy.”

It was unclear on what event Kelly worked.
