Fat and Sexy tour not canceled just over.
Rumors were flying this week when it was announced Maxwell had canceled the remaining leg of his concert tour because his interchanging opening acts, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, kept going over their allotted stage times.
Truth: The only dates canceled were the dates with Melanie Fiona.
So where did the rumors of discord come from?
Classic gossip trait: It was a tiny bit of truth wrapped in exaggeration.
It's very true, Eyrakh Badu and Jill Scott both repeatedly went way over their allotted stage times, causing confusion about exactly who was headlining the tour, but it's not the reason it was canceled.
Fire Media released a statement saying the remaining dates were canceled “Due to scheduling conflicts with the venues."
Still sounds fishy, but there you have it.
