Allison Samuels of Newsweek profiled Jay-Z and the rapper’s troubled tour with R. Kelly, which ended got cut short early and led to a lawsuit. “The only reason Jay went out on this tour is because he took a lot of flak for pulling out of the tour two years ago, when Robert had his trouble,” a Jay-Z insider explained. “Then this guy starts tripping and acting like a diva. It takes a lot to make Jay mad, so the fact that this got to the boiling point shows how bad it was.” Jay-Z will say only that he gets “a lot of love from my fans. That’s what it’s all about, and there’s enough to go around. Unfortunately, what looked good on paper didn’t work out that way in reality.”
