New R. Kelly allegations raised in cable docuseries

New R. Kelly allegations raised in cable docuseries

Clips of "Surviving R. Kelly" on Lifetime TV's Instagram account show young women crying while recalling experiences with R. Kelly, and even R. Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, also appears.

Now, R. Kelly, who denies all claims of abuse, is reportedly gearing up to strike back and discredit the accusers seen in the series.

After learning of the spike in streaming, Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to share a video in which admits she's "having a really hard time understanding why".

"That broke my heart right there because I really believed him when he said that he wasn't messing with Aaliyah".

"(She never let me) get too close to predatory men who wanted to do god-knows-what to me", she adds.

"So I got an article this morning that R. Kelly streams have spiked substantially since the release of Surviving R. Kelly docuseries and I'm having a reeeeally hard time understanding why", she told fans in a video post on Instagram. "It's nearly like God was able to let me see in the future". (Deadline)We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly.

Who Killed 7-Year-Old Jazmine Barnes?
Jazmine's sister Alexis Dilbert, who was in the auto , told ABC she was able to see the suspect's face during the shooting. Washington took off, tires screeching as she left the lot - trying to protect her family by evading the gunman.

While artists in the hip-hop and R&B community were reluctant to appear on camera for "Surviving R. Kelly", the six-part docuseries credited Vince Staples for calling out Kelly as a "child molester" in a post-Coachella interview that went viral and helped reopen the national conversation about Kelly.

"Calling in a noncredible threat to the NYPD to interrupt our screening is an act of desperation from people who don't want these truths shared with the world", executive producer and showrunner Dream Hampton said in an email to CNN at the time.

Jada promised to address the R. Kelly documentary and all the reactions to it during a Facebook Live chat on Wednesday (09Jan19).

In 2002 video surfaced of Kelly allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a 14-year-old.

After parting ways with Kelly, Aaliyah went on to enjoy chart success, but her fame was tragically cut short when she was killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas, when she was just 22, in August 2001. I believe these women and don't give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist.

In a now-deleted tweeted, Questlove said "I always thought Kels was trash". The news was confusing and upsetting to many people.
