One day after undergoing emergency throat surgery, singer R. Kelly was discharged from Northwestern Memorial Chicago hospital late Wednesday night.

E! News reports, “He left the hospital last night and is recuperating at home in Chicago. Still no word on when he’ll be able to resume performing,” according to his publicist.

On Wednesday, Kelly’s publicist said that doctors had to drain an abcess on one of Kelly’s tonsils Tuesday. Kelly’s publicist said he would be “laid up indefinitely.”

The recovering singer reached out to his fans via Twitter Wednesday night, where he expressed his thanks “everybody for their love, concern and support. I will be back!”
