Lifetime’s 'Surviving R. Kelly' Docuseries Trailer Is Here And It's Full On
John Legend, R&B singer Sparkle, and talk show host Wendy William have all participated in the three-part series which delves into R. Kelly's sordid past.
Earlier this year, the entertainment world was rocked after several women alleged that singer R. Kelly has been imprisoning women in what they described as an abusive sex cult.
Following the allegations, Spotify quickly removed the singer from curated playlists under it's new “hateful conduct” policy, only to reverse the decision less than a month later.
However, the #MuteRKelly movement continues to gain traction, with many banding together to bring justice to the women reportedly abused by the R&B singer over the years.
Surviving R. Kelly is the first of two projects about the allegations against R. Kelly, with this one focusing on R. Kelly the “fun, laughing, loving guy” and Robert Kelly the "devil,” a “puppet master,” and a “monster.”
According to Rolling Stone, The series will feature "over 50 interviews", with people such as singer John Legend, Wendy Williams, Sparkle, Tarana Burke, R. Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea Kelly, his ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones, and two of his brothers.
Lifetime first announced the series in May, saying:
“Some very brave black women have trusted us with their stories, their truth and their trauma,” executive producer Dream Hampton said in a statement. “They are survivors, and I’m honored to share their stories with the world.”
