Common Says The Black Community Failed R. Kelly Survivors

Common Says The Black Community Failed R. Kelly Survivors

In the documentary, backup singers detailed sexual relations between R. Kelly and three girls under the age of 16, including 15-year-old star Aaliyah, who died in 2001 in a plane crash.

"Kelly" documentary broke ratings records for the Lifetime TV Network.

"Thank God for his grace, guidance, love AND deliverance", Andrea captioned the post. "I'm guilty of that myself because I didn't stop and be like 'no!" I AM No longer afraid. "I apologise to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out". "I knew that it had changed the course of everything". "I only say this to provide context and in no way to victim blame".

Thus far, there haven't been any more charges levied by the police against R. Kelly following his controversial child-sex case that came out in the early 2000s. "You be the judge!"

After being asked as to why the page was removed, a spokesperson for Facebook explained it was taken down because it "violated our Community Standards". A representative for the social media platform stated, "We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other's private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we're aware".

Also, R. Kelly claims that all the people in Surviving R. Kelly have a personal "vendetta" against him.

Known especially for his hit 'I believe I can fly, ' the 51-year-old singer and producer was charged in 2002 with filming sex acts between him and a 14-year-old girl, but was ultimately acquitted in 2008. "Secondly, as to a civil lawsuit, there are different time periods for filing a civil lawsuit, so it may be that civil lawsuits may follow".

Master P went on to say, "I don't know if R. Kelly did it or not; that ain't my business".

TMZ released a new report today with footage of some of the women featured in the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries enjoying an R. Kelly concert in 2016. The site will also reveal the "true motivations" behind the women's allegations, according to the outlet. The series is comprehensively damning and powerfully disturbing-while also being riveting, a slightly queasy combination that makes flawless sense on Lifetime, a channel whose specialty has always been wringing thrills and warnings from stories about endangered women.

Timothy told authorities they were engaged with the docu-series and that Russell sent messages on the day it debuted, expressing that "it would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air".
