Millions may have watched “Surviving R. Kelly,” but the man himself did not. In fact, sources say R Kelly is disgusted by the Lifetime series that exposed the years of sexual and physical abuse he allegedly inflicted on mostly underage Black and Brown girls.
The way R sees it, he doesn’t know half the people who appeared on the show, and the other half hate him for various personal and professional reasons. He also says that the producers shut out the people who wanted to go on camera and defend him.
Bottom line – Kelz plans to sue everyone involved in “Surviving R. Kelly.”
- ONE MORE THING! Meanwhile, Chance the Rapper – who regrets ever working with Kelly – says that his comments were taking out of context. In case you missed it, in one episode of “Surviving R. Kelly,” he was shown saying, “I didn’t value the accusers’ stories because they were Black women.” His explanation was that he automatically looked at Kelz as a victim because he’s been “programmed to really be hypersensitive to Black male oppression.” He not only posted the clip to give a better context, he later said, “Anyone mentioning that I have Black women in my family is deliberately missing the point. Regardless of the proximity of beneficial [Black women] in your life, or being Black yourself, we are all capable of subconsciously discrediting [Black women] and their stories because [it’s] indoctrinated.” And Jamilah Lemieux – who conducted the interview – also defended Chance.
