A group of fans doesn't want R. Kelly to headline Soulquarius R&B Festival due to his history of sexual assault allegations.

R. Kelly is scheduled to headline Soulquarius, a one-day R&B festival to be held in Orange County in February. A new petition filed to Change.com hopes to remove him from the bill altogether.

The petition, titled "Kick R.Kelly's rapist ass off the SOULQUARIUS lineup," cites the singer's lengthy history of sexual assault allegations:

"Despite an endless flood of abuse allegations and widespread knowledge of his notorious 'romance' with the late singer Aaliyah, who was age 15 to his 27 years, Kelly has maintained a relatively successful career," the page reads. "Stop booking this man. Stop supporting this man. There's great power in having a voice. Let's send a message that the music is not 'separate' and the abuse of girls and women is *never* okay, no matter who you are or how many timeless ballads you've contributed to the world." 

In addition to R. Kelly, Soulquarius set to feature Erykah Badu, Ja Rule, Ashanti, DMXThe-Dream, and a host of others. Read the petition to remove Kelly from the festival here.
