WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The co-owner of a Winston-Salem nightclub says the business won't sponsor another celebrity appearance after customers complained about one involving R. Kelly.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported ( tickets to An Intimate Birthday Celebration with Kelly at Ziggy's nightclub sold for $35 to $55.

Customers said Kelly went on stage late Sunday night, smoking a cigar and drinking alcohol, and sang 15 seconds of his 1994 hit song Bump 'N Grind. They said he sat down after making a few comments.

Ziggy's co-owner Charles Womack says the event was an appearance, not a concert. He says Ziggy's is looking for a way to make up with unsatisfied customers.

He says this was the first time and will be the last time Ziggy's will hold a celebrity appearance without a performance.
