Investigators contacted family of woman allegedly held by R. Kelly: attorney

Chance The Rapper Explained Why He Worked With R. Kelly Despite The Disgraced Singer’s Reputation

R&B legend Ne-Yo has posted his support for the series, saying that music can not matter more than the lives of young black women. All the kids at my middle school bumped him.

"With regards to the post that is in circulation of Drea Kelly singing 'Happy People, ' this in no way should be perceived as an extension of support for R. Kelly, but should be viewed as a statement of her strength and not having been defeated", said the statement continues. "I started as a dancer".

To simply put the responsibility on Black women to fight against the misogyny they face alone - even though they also fight for civil rights for everyone else across the aisle - is selfish and unfair.

Last July, Kelly penned a 19-minute song in response to the numerous allegations against him. "I really would like for you guys to help me understand what I am missing". In Surviving R. Kelly, Sparkle says that it was her then-14-year-old niece who appears in a leaked pornographic videotape alleged to be made by and involving R. Kelly.

According to TMZ, R. Kelly's legal team previously warned Lifetime against broadcasting the documentary.

How do you feel about R. Kelly? If you somebody daddy and they got your daughter. There are reports that the series sparked renewed interest in Kelly's music, but chatter on social media about the series also called attention to groups that seek to end violence against women.

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith responded to the report in a video on her Twitter account, saying, "How is it that R Kelly's music sales have spiked (substantially) since the release of the docuseries Surviving R Kelly? I'm like, 'Okay, he runs a tight ship.' Never looked at it as controlling". "She was anxious and scared. What am I missing???" "Her family didn't talk to her for 10 years after she testified at that trial, members in her family".

On The Karen Hunter Show, dream hampton spoke about the significance of Sparkle's appearance and testimony in the documentary.

The documentary is massively upsetting to watch, with woman after woman telling stories with paralleling patterns of his behaviour. As the documentary's experts point out, people associate R. Kelly's music with memorable times in their own lives-graduations, parties, anniversaries-and they don't want to tarnish those memories with his deeds.

Chris Hopper, the public information officer for the Fulton County DA, said he had "no comment" after being asked if there was an open investigation of Kelly in Georgia.
