Surviving R. Kelly premiere breaks Lifetime record with 1.9 million viewers

The series features interviews with over 50 people, including the "All of Me" hitmaker, who comments on the cultural impact of Kelly's work, however, speaks candidly about his opinion on the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

Further cementing his status as Kelly's chief journalistic crusader, DeRogatis reported that Kelly had allegedly been keeping women against their will in an abusive "cult".

The release of the infamous sex tape that led to R. Kelly's arrest on charges of child pornography is the focus of the second chapter of the three-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly airing Friday night.

"I wouldn't hear from him for days, and he would come back and it was just sex and abuse", she recalled.

Vibe magazine found that Kelly got married to Aaliyah when she was only 15 and listed herself as 18 while the singer was 27.

Hampton said she gathered a ton of material against Kelly, including his ex-wife Andrea Kelly's claims of the singer's pedophilia and physical and sexual abuse.

Although Surviving R. Kelly seems to have sparked some new attention toward R. Kelly's alleged sex crimes, that attention has consistently been with us for close to two decades.

John, who had previously worked with R Kelly, said his involvement wasn't a hard decision for him to make, despite others refusing to comment on the issue.

John Legend has been a vocal supporter of the women who have claimed they're victims of R Kelly's abuse and he's once again stated "I believe these women" in a new statement.

Singer John Legend has publicly lashed out R Kelly calling him a "serial child rapist". She realized that dream, thanks to those true fans who still love and support her legacy unconditionally to this day", she writes, concluding: "Shame on all those involved in this project who thought it kosher to drag Aaliyah's name into a situation that has nothing to do with her today. "I admire them so much and have all the respect in the world for them". The marriage was purportedly annulled within the year as "her parents had the last say".

The Hampton was quick to point out via Twitter that Aaliyah was only a small part of the story she is telling with this series. Van Allen told the cameras that she watched several of them and saw footage of Kelly having sex with different young girls.

"We were out on the road with Aaliyah".
