"He left the hospital last night and is recuperating at home in Chicago," his publicist told E! News Thursday. "Still no word on when he'll be able to resume performing."

On Wednesday, the "World's Greatest" singer's publicist said that doctors had to drain an abcess on one of Kelly's tonsils Tuesday. At the time, Kelly's publicist said he would be "laid up indefinitely" in the hospital.
