R Kelly On Hiatus After Emergency Throat Surgery

R Kelly is on an indefinite hiatus following emergency throat surgery in Chicago.

The 44-year-old singer was rushed to hospital after complaining of throat pain, where doctors drained an abscess on one of the his tonsils.

Kelly first hinted at throat issues on Twitter last week.

"I refuse to take another cup of theraful!," he said. "I feel like my throat is coming back. I've been in bed sweating like crazy."

The medical issue comes a week after news that Kelly is facing a foreclosure on his $2.9 million suburban Chicago mansion.

It's not clear when he'll be able to resume performing. The singer just wrapped up the US part of his worldwide 'Love Letter' tour.
