Is he or isn't he?

R Kelly has finally addressed the rumours claiming he's scheduled to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration.

The R&B singer shared a message with his Twitter followers, which dismissed the claims that he would be stepping out on stage at the ceremony.

"End. Of. Story." he captioned the photo.

President Elect Trump will be sworn in on 20th January on the steps of the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

The soon-to-be 45th President of the United States is reportedly struggling to find A-List acts wiling to perform at his inauguration, with only one contemporary act confirmed at present.

Ex-America's Got Talent star Jackie Evancho is the most well-known performer, and currently the only solo artist, confirmed to perform at the highly-publicised event.

In related news, R Kelly recently hit the headlines after being groped by an overzealous female fan at a Christmas show last year.

The Chicago native was performing at his ’12 Nights Of Christmas’ concert in Detroit when a woman appeared to reach out and grab him between the legs.
