R Kelly has announced a tour of NZ Sri Lanka and Australia

However, the promoter is a Melbourne, Australia-based entertainment company called Flamingo Dreamz.

The tweet comes just a few weeks after Surviving R. Kelly, a six-part documentary detailing the allegations made against the musician, aired in the US.

The embattled American entertainer announced on social media Tuesday that he'll be going to Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

This follows a previous Australian tour announcement that was cancelled virtually as quickly as it was announced in December, one in which venues listed on the run of dates claimed they were never booked for the shows in the first place.

The series, which originally went out in January, includes allegations of R. Kelly's alleged sexual preference for underage women and rumours that he had created his own "sex cult".

R. Kelly apparently has fans riding for him in overseas markets despite the heinous crimes he's been accused of committing. Kelly's music has also been banned on a number of radio stations around the country.

Kelly has consistently denied the allegations, but the stories of women who have suffered at the hands of the singer over 25 years can not be denied.

"Labor strongly supports the refusal or cancellation of visas of non-citizens on character or criminal grounds", he said in a statement.

The country has previously denied visas to Chris Brown and Floyd Mayweather, the paper reported. You can read an outline of R. Kelly's abuse here.

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

R. Kelly's career has been stagnated ever since the #MuteRKelly campaign gained momentum previous year, resulting in the production of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.

The series features survivors sharing allegations on the years of sexual coercion, exploitation and physical abuse they endured at the hands of the singer.
