R. Kelly undergoes appendix surgery
R. Kelly missed a court appearance on child pornography charges this week after undergoing surgery for a burst appendix, his lawyer said.
Attorney Terence Gillespie said the 40-year-old R&B singer underwent surgery Sunday, shortly after being admitted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. The court hearing was Wednesday.
Gillespie said Thursday that Kelly was in good condition and was expected to be released from the hospital later in the day.
