Kelly has been dominating headlines in recent weeks thanks to the release of the documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", which detailed the decades of physical, sexual, and mental abuse allegations levelled against the star by a string of women.

However, Kelly posted on social media: "FAKE TOUR ALERT While I love all my incredible Fans in the Australia region I am NOT involved in this tour nor do I have knowledge of it, it's promoters, etc".

The tour announced this morning is being presented by Australian company Flamingo Dreamz, who have previously promoted tours with the likes of Fatman Scoop, Ja Rule and Ashanti.

A representative for the singer did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

He married 15-year-old singer Aaliyah in 1994, when he was 27.

In 2002, Kelly was indicted on 21 counts of child pornography and most recently, was accused of holding young women in a "sex cult". So if R. Kelly is able to visit, that is royally cooked.

One national promoter, speaking to 10 daily under conditions of anonymity, said it was about putting "victims first".

But the scrutiny of the docu-series and growing public pressure do not appear to have fazed Kelly, who has maintained his innocence, oftentimes brushing off the allegations.

Kelly shows no intention of suspending his musical career despite the popular #MuteRKelly movement on Twitter.

R. Kelly completed his new album in his recording studio in Chicago two weeks ago despite being quietly dropped by Sony label RCA. Several previous cases have been settled out of court.

"A person can fail the character test for a number of reasons, including but not limited to where a non-citizen has a substantial criminal record or where their conduct represents a risk to the Australian community", a department spokesperson told 10 daily a year ago. He has vehemently denied all allegations.
