R. Kelly plans to “sue everyone” involved in new documentary

R. Kelly is reportedly making plans to take legal action against the creators behind ‘Surviving R.Kelly’, a recently-aired docu-series that examines widespread sexual abuse allegations against the R’n’B star.

The Showtime’s programme consisted of three consecutive episodes detailing the stories of women who came forward to document their abuse claims against the rapper.

It alleges that Kelly had sex with underage girls, and examines claims that the artist ran a sex cult.

A TMZ report has now stated that Kelly is “disgusted” by the show: “The sources say R. Kelly is resolute – as one source put it, ‘He’s going to sue everybody who had anything to do with this’.” 

The same report claimed that Kelly denies knowing half of the women featured in the series and believes the show to be a “vendetta”, stating that: “the other half hate him for various personal and professional reasons.”

Yesterday, Chance The Rapper apologised for collaborating with R. Kelly back in 2015, writing on Twitter: “The truth is any of us who ever ignored the R Kelly stories, or ever believed he was being setup/attacked by the system (as black men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls, I apologize to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out.”
