Chance the Rapper Says Collaborating With R

In the docu-series, then-wife Andrea Kelly says that she was kept intentionally in the dark about Kelly's behavior. "I just think it was total wrong what he did", said Ruiz. You can see exclusive clips for this season on the site.

Sources say the women taped several sessions over the past few months and spoke freely about being abused by the "Bump and Grind" singer. The docuseries includes commentary from a number of Kelly's victims, as well as friends, family members, cultural critics, industry veterans and psychological experts weighing in on the trauma Kelly's style of sexual misconduct can foster. "I'm thinking 'damn I don't wanna be the one guy I always am in documentaries fawning over someone I detest.' So make ZERO mistake on my positioning". "We asked Jay-Z.

Conway also testified at Kelly's trial, where he confirmed the identity of the girl.

But by far the most hard thing to grapple with are the parents featured in the film. One juror, John Petrean said he didn't believe the women who testified against Kelly. "We did push back in the moment, but we didn't organize to shut him down, so there was this feeling of responsibility".

Ahead of Thursday's premiere, Kelly, threatened to sue the network, according to TMZ. A representative for Lifetime says despite receiving a cease-and-desist letter, the network made a decision to move forward with airing the series.

(The name of her debut album, which producer Kelly apparently chose, was Age Ain't Nothing But a Number.) Despite numerous harshest revelations in Surviving R. Kelly, fans can hardly say they weren't warned.
