  • 'Surviving R. Kelly' Producer Reveals A-List Stars Who Allegedly Declined to Appear in Lifetime Docuseries

According to Billboard, Kelly's legal representatives have threatened Lifetime with a lawsuit suggesting that the documentary defames Kelly.

To know that many men I've known throughout my career (women too, no doubt, but overwhelmingly more men) worked so closely with R.

Below we answer some of your burning questions.

What does R. Kelly have to say about all this?

In the documentary, backup singers detailed sexual relations between R Kelly and three girls under the age of 16, including 15-year-old star Aaliyah, who died in 2001 in a plane crash.

Has any of the allegations affected his children?

Several women and girls have accused R. Kelly of sexual assault allegedly stretching back almost two decades.

He was acquitted of child pornography charges in Chicago in 2008, The Guardian reported - but speculation about his alleged sexual misconduct has continued. "I told them [the others who had the tape] probably wouldn't just give it back to me, that they would probably need something to give it back", Van Allen said.

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crimes connected with the allegations. "I made a mistake and I'm happy that those women are getting voices now and I can grow to understand better what my positioning should be or should've been when that opportunity came".

Over 50 interviews were conducted for the project, which chronicles Kelly's life, career and the numerous sexual assault and abuse allegations he has faced. Those were the good old days, ' she said, adding: 'but those are the things that also make you cry'. "I apologize to all his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out".

In a statement released prior to the premiere, Aaliyah's mother Diane Hauhgton vehemently **denied this claim. "We all noticed but no one cared because we were black girls", sums Mikki Kendall, writer, cofounder of hoodfeminism.

The team behind Surviving R. Kelly held dozens of interviews filmed with members of the singer's inner circle.
