Kelly's lawyer claims the docuseries is full of lies. To the men who were bystanders, assisted Kelly and never did anything to intervene and stop the abuse of countless young black girls, shame on you.
The six-part, three-night special aims to expose Kelly's longstanding pattern of mental, physical and sexual abuse of young girls and women throughout his almost 30-year career.
After the arrest, Kelly pleaded not guilty and posted bail. "The checks have been over for a very long time", she said. They also suggested his likeness may have been computer-generated. The series continues tonight, and the final two episodes will air on Saturday.
In 1994, a 27-year-old R. Kelly married 15-year-old singer Aaliyah in a secret ceremony.
"These lies and fabrications can not be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongues of saboteurs of Aaliyah's legacy", the message continued.
In December 2018, the NY screening of the series was evacuated, with individuals stating they received "a threatening phone call". "[They're] people who have been critical of him", she told the Detroit Free Press.
"That's not me because I'm going to speak to anybody and everybody I want to, so when I learned that, I would go out of my way to speak to people, just to tick him off".
Legend let Kelly have it in the Tweet stating his decision to participate in Surviving R. Kelly was an "easy decision" and it wasn't "risky at all" while accurately calling the "Ignition" singer what he is by adding "I believe these woman and don't give a f**k about a protecting a serial child rapist".
Legend appears in an upcoming episode.
Readers note: This recap may be triggering to those who have experienced sexual assault. "He is the subject of a doc that allows his survivors to be heard...finally". The piece includes interviews with three former members of Kelly's inner circle and also immediately goes viral.
"We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he continued. It's 2019. And even with this thoroughly reported docu, folks still pledge their allegiance and coins to RK. "I made a mistake and I'm happy that those women are getting voices now and I can grow to understand better what my positioning should be or should've been when that opportunity came".
