The "Unfinished Business" between Jay-Z and R. Kelly just turned ugly.
The rapper and the R&B star have a new album of that title in stores, but it's a good bet their partnership will be ending right there. After a bizarre sequence of events over the weekend, the platinum-selling stars have severed their concert-tour partnership and unleashed their publicists and attorneys on one another.
The 40-city Best of Both Worlds tour was imploding by the hour on Monday, and if the tour goes on at all it will be without Kelly. The itinerary includes a Nov. 23 stop at the Arrowhead Pond and a Staples Center show the next night.
The tour, which began Sept. 29, has been volatile from the get-go, and before it arrived at Madison Square Garden in New York on Friday Kelly had reportedly infuriated his tour-mate by canceling three performances on short notice and delaying others. On Friday at the sold-out Garden, Kelly cut short his set and said he saw guns being waved in the crowd.
