Lifetime's highly anticipated six-part documentary series, Surviving R. Kelly will examine Robert Kelly's legacy and career from the perspective of his predatory behavior, abuse allegations, and other controversies. They're so courageous. Their stories are important, and they have every right to share them.

Kelly's music was also recently removed from playlists as part of a new public hate content and hateful conduct policy as fresh allegations claimed that the 51-year-old "knowingly and intentionally infected" a 19-year-old woman with an STD.

"Here's this person that I thought was the world, and then he walked up and gave me a hug, and I was kind of frozen", Martinez says. He was acquitted on multiple charges of making child pornography twice in the 2000s.

Kelly's lawyer Brian Nix threatened Lifetime with a lawsuit if the network aired the docuseries, which Nix said was "packed with lies", according to TMZ. This program falls under Lifetime's commitment to provide a platform to give women a voice where they have previously been unheard to bring awareness to the abuses and harassment of women. However, the network moved forward with airing the show anyway on Thursday.

"'I Believe I Can Fly' is a powerful song and it inspired a lot of people", Legend noted.

Since Cunningham's explosive revelation, Aaliyah's mother has come out swinging, vehemently denying the allegations against Kelly.

Oh, did we mention he said it from behind bars while sporting a prison jumpsuit? "These lies and fabrications can not be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongues of saboteurs of Aaliyah's legacy". The article reveals how Kelly was sued for $10 million by aspiring singer Tiffany "Tia" Hawkins, who began having a sexual relationship with Kelly in 1991, when she was 15 and he was 24.
