  • John Legend Speaks Out Against R. Kelly in New Lifetime Documentary

In Surviving R. Kelly, his former personal assistant, Demetrius Smith, claims to have attended the wedding and to having helped obtain false documents for underaged Aaliyah.

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.

Some of the cases have been covered publicly before, while many of those featured on screen have not spoken about their experiences before.

John Legend is the rare exception, stepping up whereas others like Jay Z and Lady Gaga declined to participate. John Legend is one of the only musicians to be extensively interviewed for the series.

John Legend who appeared in the final episode of the six-part docuseries made it clear via his Twitter account that he was not interested in protecting a "serial child rapist". Episodes 5 & 6 are about rightnow and are to me, the most important. My reason for declining the R. Kelly docu that I support 1000000 percent is I didn't wanna be in the "good times" portion of the doc, like stanning for his "genius".

Join us on Vero, as we get under the skin of global cultural happenings. These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard. However, he broke a record last night that I don't think he was too happy to.

This is not the first time that Bruce Kelly has been in jail. With over 743,000 total interactions across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, Surviving R. Kelly was Lifetime's largest social premiere for any series or movie in network history.

The Lifetime documentary series Surviving R. Kelly now has Twitter on fire, and we haven't even cracked the surface.

The woman, who is a former teenage girlfriend of R. Kelly - and is suing him for allegedly giving her herpes - claimed he also videotaped himself having non-consensual sex with her. "I loved Aaliyah and when people watch the documentary, they will see how much I cared for her and how much Robert's actions deeply affected me and so many others".

"But I didn't know that a bomb was coming", Sparkle said. And I told him...

It includes interviews with a number of the women who were involved in the scandal, including the person who stole the videotape from Kelly's library and got it in the hands of a Chicago journalist. According to the letter published by TMZ, Nix claims that numerous allegations made in the documentary are false, and further alleges that Lifetime knowingly included false accounts.
