R. Kelly is still finding fan support overseas despite the sex abuse allegations against him. TMZ reports that Kelly’s scheduled concerts in Germany are selling out so quickly that they’re being moved to bigger venues.

According to the outlet, Kelly is scheduled for some shows this spring and his April 12th show was set for the MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany. That show sold quickly enough to move it to a higher-capacity venue in Sindelfingen, and then again relocated to Ratiopharm Arena in Neu-Ulm which holds 9,000 people.

The move comes as Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia for claims of sex abuse against him made in the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly. Those investigations have caused some shows in the US to be cancelled over “security concerns.”

The arena spokesperson for Ratiopharm said that if Kelly faces legal charges before the show, it haS contractual arrangements to cancel if necessary.
