Ne-Yo Makes Bank Off Lawsuit

Things aren't looking so good for R. Kelly. A federal judge just granted Ne-Yo $700,320 after he sued R Kelly from dropping his tour.

Ne-Yo and R. Kelly were co-headlining the Double Up tour of North America in 2007 when Ne-Yo was asked to leave the tour after just two shows.

"I believe it was because the first few reviews of the show, people were talking more about my set than his and I don't think he liked that too much," said Ne-Yo.

R. Kelly must have thought scrapping Ne-Yo was a great idea at the time, but Ne-Yo got the last laugh. He's probably laughing all the way to the bank.
