Although R. Kelly maintains that reports about him holding women in a sex cult are “a bunch of crap,” he has still hired a crisis team to fight the claims leveled at him by several of the women’s families.

The embattled R& B singer, who was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, has retained Monique Pressley, a former attorney for Bill Cosby, to manage the crisis and is paying her $50,000 for 30 days, according to the New York Post’s Page Six gossip section.

“Despite all of the crap y’all hearing, I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show, and believe me, y’all, it’s a bunch of crap,” Kelly said in a video.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s concert dates in Dallas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La., have been cancelled due to low ticket sales.
