Chance the Rapper has issued an apology for working with R. Kelly after a clip of the rapper expressing his regret for previously dismissing Kelly's accusers aired in the Lifetime series "Surviving R. Kelly". "And that's when it became real to me, 'Andrea, you're being abused.'" With the revelation being as clear as ever, Andrea Kelly left with the kids. "I love you, I always will, I wish you the best, but maybe we just jumped in way too deep into this thing.' And she went her way and he went his".
Erykah Badu, Questlove, Mary J. Blige, Lil' Kim, and Celine Dion also refused to appear in Surviving R. Kelly, according to the producer.
When the fact that other accused still had their music under the streaming giant's banner, the company chose to revert their radical decision.
He added: 'I don't know if that's because I'm from Chicago or 'cause he made great music or 'cause he is a black man'.
R Kelly and Aaliyah were rumoured to have been married when she was just 15-years-old and this leaked marriage certificate allegedly proves it.
Speaking to People, Smith said, "Robert came to me, we were in Miami".
The representative for Lee claims that she has acknowledge that since their children are all fully grown now and understand the accusations against their father in the Lifetime docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly.
As we said, people have various opinions on the matter.
The 47-year-old actress isn't the only celebrity who has spoken up on the docuseries. The case went to trial in 2008, and Kelly was acquitted. R. Kelly states those who created the documentary have a "vendetta" against him and wanted to hurt him, his entire career.
Renewed interest in R. Kelly's dealings with underage girls and young women started after a 2017 Buzzfeed article claimed R. Kelly was keeping a cult of young women.
John Legend was essentially the only fellow artist who agreed to speak out against Kelly, where many more declined. So the signs were there in the songs that abuse allegations against Kelly carried weight, but his friends and family - along with the media, the music industry and his loyal fans - fumbled the ball over and over again.
'I believe these women and don't give a f*ck about protecting a serial child rapist.
A quote from TMZ also reads: "Sources close to Kelly tell us he and his camp are in the middle of launching a new website called survivinglies.com, which we're told will attempt to expose all of his accusers as liars as well as reveal their true motivations behind their allegations".
