Allegations that singer R. Kelly sexually abused and assaulted women and young girls have swirled for years, but recently became even more prominent with Lifetime's docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly.

Chance The Rapper really fucking said he didn't care about the victims because they were Black women.

Chance the Rapper, who has worked with R. Kelly, apologized on Twitter on Saturday, clarifying what he said in the documentary Surviving R. Kelly.

He went on to say: "But black women are exponentially [a] higher oppressed and violated group of people just in comparison to the whole world".

R. Kelly reportedly wants to take legal action against every person who was involved in the documentary, "Surviving R. Kelly". Bruce Kelly, R. Kelly's brother, said that neither of Kelly's brothers attended the wedding Andrea claims that Kelly sprung a fancy ceremony on her without being aware of it. Dash has now revealed to Hip-Hop Motivation that R. Kelly and Aaliyah were at the center of that falling out which ultimately damaged his friendship with Jay.

John Legend, who also appeared on Surviving R. Kelly, has since offered a scathing tweet explaining his choice to participate.

"This [video] 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", the rep told TMZ, adding that the video is several years old and people heal from emotional pain in different ways. "He stole my life from me being abused like this", she says in the documentary directed by filmmaker Dream Hampton.

Now, 51-year-old R. Kelly has seen his Spotify streams jump 16%. "I made a mistake and I'm happy that those women are getting voices now and I can grow to understand better what my positioning should be or should've been when that opportunity came".

Allegations of abuse and sexual misconduct against RnB artist R Kelly are in the spotlight again as a six-part documentary series reignites public outrage.

It also had more than 743,000 total interactions across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, according to Nielsen Social Content Ratings. "I believe these women and don't give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist".
