In the interview, the contrite rapper expressed relief that the accusations from the multiple women who have accused Kelly of mental, physical and sexual abuse were getting more widely heard.

Jay z and Lady Gaga are among the most famous musicians who refused to appear in a film showing the real life of R.Kelly, the film producer described.

An interview clip of Chance, real name Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, saying it was a "mistake" to work with the Kelly was played in Saturday's final episode of US network Lifetime's three-part Surviving R. Kelly programme.

January 5, 2019It don't take a rocket scientist to see what was going on.... what I'm tryna figure out why did they let it go on soooooo long!

Jerhonda Pace, a survivor of R.Kelly, said, "I felt like a prisoner".

She then thanked her mother always being by her side until she turned 18 - and never letting her work with Kelly, even though JoJo "begged" her to reconsider.

Representatives for Kelly, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, previously responded "no comment" to PEOPLE's request for a response to the allegations made in Surviving R. Kelly and interviews with alleged victims in this week's issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. "Why would they wanna tear down another brother / Women show black men some love / 'Cause black men, we go through enough", Kelly sings.

In the documentary, backing singer Jovante Cunningham claims to have caught R Kelly having sex with singer Aaliyah when she was just 15 and he was 27. "But I think it's important to understand why".

'We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression, ' Chance explained. Many artists and peers turned down the chance to be part of the documentary, but Chance the Rapper took the opportunity to speak out. "Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation".

"To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all", tweeted Legend. I believe these women and don't give a f*** 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".
