Kelly Lawyers File Criminal Complaint Against Jay-Z Aide

LATEST: Lawyers for R KELLY are filing a criminal complaint against a member of JAY-Z's entourage who allegedly attacked the R+B singer with pepper spray.

Kelly was kicked off his joint tour with Jay-Z after the incident, which happened at New York's Madison Square Garden on Friday (29OCT04).

The IGNITION singer's representatives are also considering legal action over the decision to dismiss him from the roadshow.

Kelly sparked chaos at the New York concert, when he stormed off stage during his performance, insisting he could see two audience members carrying guns.

After getting the all-clear from security guards, Kelly headed stagewards again and had mace sprayed in his face and at two of his bodyguards, says his spokesman ALLAN MAYER.

Mayer adds, "I'm pretty sure Jay didn't realize what was going on."

But Jay-Z says, "You can't get a gun inside Madison Square Garden. If people give me love he can't take it."

Jay-Z and Kelly were in the midst of the 40-city BEST OF BOTH WORLDS tour, scheduled to run until 28 November (04). He will now complete the tour with special guests, but without Kelly.
