‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Documentary Reviews Decades of Sex Abuse Accusations
The documentary has become the subject of widespread attention and fierce debate on social media
For years R&B singer Robert Kelly, who performs as R. Kelly, has faced accusations of sexual misconduct and abuse.
The allegations of abuse and sexual misconduct against R. Kelly are in the spotlight again as a six-part documentary series reignites public outrage.
This week, a six-part documentary on Lifetime is taking an expansive look at the allegations against the chart-topping artist whose history has invited extra scrutiny in recent years.
The first two episodes which were broadcast Thursday night looked at the long history of allegations against Mr. Kelly. In the episodes, women described being controlled or abused by him, often when they were teenagers.
The documentary has become the subject of widespread attention and fierce debate on social media, many expressing gratitude to the women who continue to tell their stories.
The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer has, however, continuously denied the allegations against him.
Mr. Kelly's lawyer reportedly alleges that the documentary is filled with false allegations, and suggests the subjects are defaming his client for personal gain.
