Shirtless Florida man refuses to believe he just met R. Kelly

Posted By on Thu, Jun 2, 2016 at 2:38 PM

R. Kelly believes he can fly and more importantly, that people should recognize him on the street. 

Over Memorial Day weekend, a shirtless (and probably inebriated) man just happened to run into the legendary R&B singer in Jacksonville, Florida, and, of course, refused to believe he was standing next the real deal. 

Despite R. Kelly performing an a cappella version of "Bump N' Grind" to convince him otherwise, the man agreed to a $100 bet that R.Kelly is not who he says he is. 

Shockingly, after losing the bet it was discovered that he only had $15 in his wallet.
