John Legend Comments On Involvement With New R. Kelly Film

R Kelly himself even addressed controversial sexual misconduct allegations made against him on a freaky new 19-minute song called "I Admit It".

She spoke to CBS News about her relationship with R. Kelly, saying she filed the lawsuit against him in NY for "willfully, deliberately and maliciously" infecting her with herpes to warn other teenage girls who may come into contact with him. "R. Kelly is someone that we, my generation, should have dealt with a long time ago", Hampton said.

After last night's premiere of Surviving R. Kelly, it's clear that a number of people tuned in.

Sparkle hit headlines in the early Noughties after she alleged R Kelly was involved in a videotape showing him engaging in a sexual act with one of her family members.

"We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly", he tweeted.

Kelly will hear from the "Step in the Name of Love" singer's ex-wife Andrea Kelly, ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones, brothers Carey, and Bruce Kelly and even industry giants like John Legend and Wendy Williams. "I was asked to talk about his genius, I do not nor have I EVER stanned for him".

Hampton fired back, quoting Questlove's tweet and adding, "I didn't ask you about his 'Genius.' I've never thought he was a genius. I admire them so much and have all the respect in the world for them".

John Legend who appeared in the final episode of the six-part docuseries made it clear via his Twitter account that he was not interested in protecting a "serial child rapist".

"Surviving R. Kelly" continues Friday and Saturday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.

R. Kelly, who has been accused of running a sex cult, had "no comment" on the claims put forth in the documentary. "You don't get to tell people that we got divorced because I had a problem with being a stay-at-home mom", they have two children together.

Hampton discussed with the Detroit Free Press how she had asked other celebrities and musicians to participate in the series, but they declined. Not because they stand with Kelly per say, but because they just didn't want to touch it.

Kelly's lawyer Brian Nix threatened Lifetime with a lawsuit if the network aired the docuseries, which Nix said was "packed with lies", according to TMZ. You know, no different than putting a loaded gun in a kid's hand - he gonna grow up being a shooter, probably.

The singer claims he is in possession of two recordings which prove Lifetime bosses were aware that some of the girls on film are lying about their experiences with the R&B star "but that the budget was too high" to erase their involvement.

"Lifetime has always been a brand that champions women's stories", the network said in a statement. "The documentary will air as scheduled".
