R Kelly 'under criminal investigation’ after LifeTime documentary 'Surviving R. Kelly'

Lydia FlemingJan 09, 2019

Referring to his 2015 collaboration with Kelly on the singer's song "Somewhere In Paradise", and bringing him out as a surprise guest during his 2014 Lollapalooza set, Chance explained, "Maybe I didn't care because I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women".

According to the U.S. Department of Justice statistics, Black girls and women 12 years old and older experienced higher rates of rape and sexual assault than White, Asian and Latina girls from 2005-2010.

"Her family is encouraged by the investigation, but they will be happy once they get to see their daughter", Griggs said.

"Thank God for his grace, guidance, love AND deliverance", Andrea captioned the post. "You have to give me an answer, not today, not tomorrow, right now". I AM No longer afraid.

Earlier, a source close to Kelly told the outlet he had not watched the documentary series, but meant to launch legal action against the accusers featured in the programme.

'I don't think he understands girls that are young how impressionable we are and how traumatic these experiences are'. Oh did I say TODAY! "Robert said 'I do.' Him and Aaliyah". "You be the judge!"

NHK footage showed the van with a smashed front and paramedics carrying the injured on stretchers into ambulances. The Japanese news outlet stated in its report that is unclear to which execution the suspect was referring.

Facebook pulled two pages created on Monday morning to "expose" R. Kelly's accusers.

Facebook were quick to remove the page and claimed that it had violated their community standards.

"We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other's private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we're aware", their statement continued.

The sources say that R. Kelly wants to sue despite never watching an episode of the series. Later that year Kelly was indicted on 21 counts of making child pornography. He was acquitted, and his lawyers at the time said Kelly was not in the video, and suggested his likeness may have been computer-generated. That same year, one of the women allegedly being held against her will by Kelly, Jocelyn Savage, released a video meant to combat accusations against Kelly, Heavy reported.

He also reflected on why he felt comfortable working with Kelly at the time, despite knowing of the allegations against him. According to the letter published by the outlet, Nix claims that numerous allegations made in the series are false, and further alleges that Lifetime knowingly included false accounts.

"Lifetime has always been a brand that champions women's stories", the network added, with the show's first episode drawing nearly two million total viewers and securing its highest ratings for unscripted in three years. "The documentary will air as scheduled".
