'Surviving R. Kelly' Producer Reveals A-List Stars Who Allegedly Declined to Appear in Lifetime Docuseries

"You have people who have fantasies about different things", Bruce said when asked about the allegations that R. Kelly sexually abused minors.

What did Sparkle say about R Kelly in Surviving R Kelly?

Bootlegs of the Kelly sex tape (in which he urinates on a minor) were so widely circulated (two years before YouTube came into existence) that just about any interested party could obtain one.

The executive producer of Lifetime's docuseries Surviving R. Kelly opened up on her ongoing "war" with the R&B singer during an interview with Shadow And Act, released ahead of the show's premiere on Thursday. At the very beginning of the video, the man hands the young girl money, and she mouths the words "thank you". "I will not say with whom, but I knew she was underage". His interview appeared only to help the case of those behind Surviving R. Kelly and gave background for how the singer grew up.

"Lifetime has always been a brand that champions women's stories", the network told TMZ in response to the threat. In the episodes, women described being controlled or abused by him, often when they were teenagers.

'I remember one time he attacked me in the back of a Hummer, and I do suffer from PTSD because of it, ' Andrea recalled.

Haughton doesn't want "these lies and fabrications" to taint her daughter's legacy.

"These lies and fabrications can not be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongues of saboteurs of Aaliyah's legacy", the message continued. Hampton revealed a conversation that she had with The Roots' drummer, Questlove.

"Much of the series" revelations, however, powerful as they were, should not have been that shocking.

To know that many men I've known throughout my career (women too, no doubt, but overwhelmingly more men) worked so closely with R. Kelly and KNEW and in some cases SAW the abuse going on + told stories about this stuff in studio sessions like it was amusing and nobody came forward?

The first episode is about about Kelly's rise to fame and his marriage to the late Aaliyah. Below are some of the strongest reactions, including from some who participated in it.

The Twittersphere is up in arms about the documentary and refusing to let R. Kelly get away with the heinous crimes he committed against young Black girls. Strap in folks, the next two nights are going to blow up the internet all over again.

R. Kelly has continuously denied all accusations and has reportedly threatened legal action against Lifetime in response to the series. Email TooFab editors at tips@toofab.com.
