Surviving R. Kelly
The controversies, evidence and witnesses against the R&B singer with a reputation for paedophilia and predatory behaviour have mounted steadily over the years, and yet his star has continued to rise. For the first time ever, hear from the women who have survived his abuse in this six-part documentary series.
The series features industry names including Chance the Rapper, John Legend and Stephanie “Sparkle” Edwards, one of his proteges. After the documentary aired, Kelly’s record label cancelled its contract with him, and he was formally charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He has since been charged with other crimes, including possession of child pornography.
