Disturbing R. Kelly docuseries shows relationship with Aaliyah in a new light

John Legend Slams R. Kelly As A “Serial Child Rapist” In Angry Tweets

The docuseries also includes interviews with activist and #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, musician John Legend, talk-show host Wendy Williams and Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly. In July, Kelly mentioned Legend on the song "I Admit", singing that he loved Legend, Steve Harvey and Tom Joyner. Below we answer some of your burning questions.

She told the jury that she and the victim visited Kelly several times at his recording studio and a basketball court when they were just 12-years-old. Joann, his eldest, was born in 1998; Jay, born Jaya, was born in 2000; and his youngest, Robert Jr., was born in 2002.

Kelly has faced numerous other allegations of being involved with underage girls throughout his long career, the biggest involving a sex tape scandal. "I did not know I was getting married", she said. Given the rest of R. Kelly's history, the verdict seems like a miscarriage of justice.

New claims about R Kelly's sexual relationship with 15-year-old Aaliyah emerged from a new documentary called "Surviving R Kelly" recently - and John Legend has taken to Twitter to defend his decision to appear in the show.

The marriage was annulled shortly afterward.

Has any of the allegations affected his children?

In the premiere episode, airing tonight, a woman claiming to be one of R. Kelly's former backup singers, Jovante Cunningham, says she saw the two having sex and doing "things that an adult should not be doing with a child". Later that year Kelly was indicted on 21 counts of making child pornography. I remember Ahmir ["Questlove" Thompson] was like, 'I would do anything for you but I can't do this.' It's not because they support him, it's because it's so messy and muddy.

Christian Eriksen: Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says deal would be 'fantastic'
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino accepts that Christian Eriksen has the right to ponder a future away from the club.

"The woman and so-called back up singer that describes seeing, meeting or ever breathing the same air as my daughter, Aaliyah, is lying and is a liar", Haughton said in a statement to E!

In Surviving R. Kelly, women are emerging from the shadows and uniting their voices to share their stories.

"'I'm not proud of that (day),' he said". The documentary interviews his past survivors and how they survived the R&B singer's abuse.

The new series introduces viewers to eight women who allege that Kelly was abusive throughout the course of their relationships, as well as various members of Kelly's family, including his brothers Bruce and Carey.

(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.

"We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression..."
