The promoters and bookers who continue bring Kelly out to perform should be held accountable as well.

Andrea Kelly, the ex-wife of R. Kelly, has tearfully looked back on her relationship with the crooner, including the moment she contemplated suicide.

Listen to Sparkle's interview Tuesday on "The Clay Cane Show" on Sirius XM's Urban View below. I went into a depression. "I just want to understand what I'm missing". His runners would put slop buckets in the room... I got to thinking. But watching Surviving R. Kelly will tarnish them for you.

In the final part of the documentary, it's alleged that Kelly forces women to use buckets instead of bathrooms at his estate, and that the buckets could only be emptied with his permission. "Happy Sunday", she said, adding that she wanted to field a conversation about the documentary series on Facebook Live. "In the almost thirty-minute video, Asante's alleged daughter and boyfriend both debunk her claims of sexual abuse at the hands of Kelly" in a leaked, but unverified, phone conversation.

On The Karen Hunter Show, dream hampton spoke about the significance of Sparkle's appearance and testimony in the documentary.

I really can't think - I'm a student of rock history.

The "Vice" star won his second Globe for playing Dick Cheney in director Adam McKay's biopic about President George W. He also said that the only reason he got the role was because he can be "absolutely charisma free ".

Chance, 25, did not partake in the series, but a quote from a May interview with the lifestyle platform Cassius was included. Sources close to him kept him inform on what aired as Kelly claims to "not know half" of the people in the piece and is "disgusted" by the reports of abuse. So she was there, there was an investment in her. "What am I missing???", she captioned the video.

That same article originally wrote that Chance said that "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women". "[Sparkle] gave it all up and she gave up her family". Even with the release of the Lifetime series, the Savage family is still pleading. It will not, however, make it impossible: Over the weekend, plays of Kelly's songs were reportedly up 16 percent on Spotify, because of the documentary. The pair also performed the video single on SNL and at the American Music Awards. That work was eventually shelved.

Several women have come out to oppose R. Kelly over the past few months.

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

"NO MORE! Don't speak about MY GROWTH OR JOURNEY especially if you have NEVER BEEN ABUSED", she continued. It's so dark and sad and traumatic. "I'm gonna burn it down!" "I only say this to provide context and in no way to victim blame". You know, Aaliyah's my homegirl. At the time, she denies being married to her producer and then-mentor.

"Surviving R. Kelly" premiered Thursday despite threats of legal action from Kelly's lawyer Brian Nix.
