    According to a press release, R&B superstar R. Kelly will be laid up for an indefinite amount of time after undergoing an emergency procedure at Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Tuesday to drain an abscess on one of his tonsils.

    Kelly had visited a throat specialist earlier in the day, complaining of severe throat pain. Following a preliminary exam, he was rushed to Northwestern Memorial for the procedure. At least he had the issue taking care of on the quick.

    It is not known when the multi-platinum recording star, who just completed the US leg of his worldwide "Love Letter" Tour, will be able to resume performing.

    Get well soon, R!
