His comments come on the heels of the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", which features interviews with women who allege Kelly preyed upon them when they were underage and abused them.

But after Saturday's last episode of the series, people who took to social media had one question: why did no one care about the girls?

Now, the disgraced R&B singer is reportedly responding to the multiple part exposé.

Multi-faceted artist Chance the Rapper has publicly apologized for collaborating with the r'n'b singer R. Kelly. Since the show ended in the USA on Saturday, January 5, reports have emerged of what R Kelly has reportedly said about the series.

The report ends with a statement that reads he will be suing everyone involved with the scandalous expose.

Despite this, according to The Blast, Spotify streams of Kelly's music have reportedly increased by 16 percent since the doco debuted.

Kevin Hart Shares Message Of Growth Amid Oscars Debacle
Hart took to Instagram on Saturday (January 5) to share an inspirational message about the importance of self-improvement. Vice reports that there was "early backlash" to DeGeneres' endorsement and support of Hart.

Chance also shared a video clip of the actual interview in which his full message is shared. On the 13th of June, in 2008, the court and jury found R. Kelly innocent on all 14 counts. "It's nearly like God was able to let me see in the future".

Twitter users are calling her out on her debated hypocrisy, as she plays a large role in the #MeToo movement and declared that she has had her own abuser, though won't name him, yet works with known paedophiles. I certainly didn't know having to listen to a woman after woman talking about being denied food and movement.

Andrea also offered words of wisdom to J. and Tim Savage, the parents of (the aforementioned) Joycelyn Savage. If you somebody daddy and they got your daughter.

In follow up videos she tries to tell her family to stop making a big issue out of it.

More legal bumps are on the horizon for Kelly too, as Faith A. Rodgers filed a lawsuit against the singer in May. She gave an interview on The View talking about dramatic instances of physical abuse by then-husband R. Kelly.

It is right after this that McGee went on to make the big request that Kelly undergo a polygraph on TV, where the results can be seen live and no amusing business can go down. In 2017 BuzzFeed published its "sex cult" story where a former personal assistant to Kelly said he only permits the women to wear jogging suits so that other men can't see the outlines of their bodies.
