Facebook Shuts Down Page ‘Exposing’ The Singer’s Accusers — SurvivingRKelly

Celebrity news website The Blast reported that R Kelly' streaming numbers increased by 16% on Spotify after the airing of the first episode of Surviving R Kelly.

Horrifying allegations have been made against singer R Kelly for three decades, including an upsetting trial involving 21 counts of child pornography.

Chance the Rapper has issued an apology for working with R. Kelly after a clip of the rapper expressing his regret for previously dismissing Kelly's accusers aired in the Lifetime series "Surviving R. Kelly".

John Legend is the rare exception, stepping up whereas others like Jay Z and Lady Gaga declined to participate.

Many have echoed her outrage on Twitter. Whoa, whoa, whoa. This doesn't look good for Gaga, we have to admit. The three-part documentary sent shockwaves throughout audiences with its gripping and harrowing recounts of Kelly's alleged sexual abuse - told by seven alleged survivors - over the last 20-plus years.

The Twitter user, who shared the throwback image, said: '@johnlegend please explain??

Not only that but some witnesses say there was an inappropriate relationship between him and his protege, Aaliyah, who, at the time, was still underage!

Sadly, when it comes to sexual abuse, black women's complaints are often ignored. "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women", he said in the interview.

And I really don't wanna believe that it's because black girls don't matter enough, or is that the reason?

"The quote is taken out of context", the rapper writes in one tweet.

It appears someone was trying a full court press to defend Robert Kelly following the scathing Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.

R&B legend Ne-Yo has posted his support for the series, saying that music can not matter more than the lives of young black women. Can you, people in general, separate the Art from the Artist?

So the signs were there in the songs that abuse allegations against Kelly carried weight, but his friends and family - along with the media, the music industry and his loyal fans - fumbled the ball over and over again. The details of each of their stories are harrowing, but the overall effect is one of powerful accumulation: slight variations on an experience that becomes more and more horrifying and unassailable each time it's told.

Renewed interest in R. Kelly's dealings with underage girls and young women started after a 2017 Buzzfeed article claimed R. Kelly was keeping a cult of young women. "It's a bad burden to have to endure". I didn't have anyone to talk to.

"I just finished it as well". I went into a depression.

"He would really manipulate my mind". Robert mentioned to me that "I think she's pregnant".
