We kicked off the year by reporting that R&B star Ne-Yo was suing a concert promoter because he was generating better reviews than R. Kelly and was therefore kicked off their joint tour.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge agrees with Ne-Yo and has awarded him more than $700,000 for his troubles. Fortunately for the oft-sued R. Kelley, the money won't come from Kelly's pockets but Kelly's concert promoter Rowe Entertainment Inc.
