Chance the Rapper Apologizes for Working With R. Kelly

Kelly has long denied all accusations, and many musicians declined the opportunity to speak out against him in the docu-series.

Writer Christina Coleman tweeted, "Black women have been telling us for years about #RKelly's abuse". "I believe these women and don't give a f** a href="https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/television/2019/01/03/detroiter-produces-documentary-surviving-r-kelly/2462975002/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *Detroit Free Press it was "incredibly hard to get people who had collaborated [artistically] with Kelly to come forward".

Stephanie "Sparkle" Edward, a singer who worked with Kelly for years, also positively identified the girl in the video as the niece she'd introduced to Kelly years earlier.

"Black women are exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people just in comparison to the whole world".

Before Thursday night's premiere, a December screening of the docuseries in NY was evacuated after "several anonymous threats were called in", Lifetime said at the time. If you recall, McGee is one of the women who claims that she was a sex slave of R. Kelly's, but there is a new video his team has put out that they say contradicts her story.

"And I really don't wanna believe that it's because black girls don't matter enough, or is that the reason? I just wanna understand what I'm missing". "Or is that the reason?"

Kelly, who was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008, has been accused of engaging in sexually and emotionally abusive relationships with young women, some of whom were allegedly underage. "It's a bad burden to have to endure".

"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.

More legal bumps are on the horizon for Kelly too, as Faith A. Rodgers filed a lawsuit against the singer in May.
