(CelebNMusic247-News) R. Kelly’s Has Flying Phobia
The Chicago native and R&B legend, better known as R. Kelly reveals that he is terrified of flying!
The 46-year-old singer travels everywhere by bus and reportedly nearly missed his guest spot with French indie band Phoenix at Coachella festival in California earlier this month due to his fear.
Basically the “I Believe I Can Fly” doesn’t believe in flying at all! In fact he reveals that it took him three days by road and nearly turned up late for the headlining set with Phoenix due to his phobia of planes.
Phoenix singer Thomas Mars revealed to Xfm:
”He doesn’t fly, he only takes his tour bus. He had to leave Chicago on Wednesday to get to Coachella on Saturday. It took him three days. When we went on stage he was still in traffic.
”We got to his bit and he still wasn’t there – then I saw this huge diamond microphone and I had the smell of cigar coming on the stage and he started singing.
”He finished the performance and went back to Chicago. He travelled for seven days for a five-minute performance.”
