R. Kelly Isn't Concerned With Artists Pulling His Music, More Worried About Suing Lifetime

Kelly wants vengeance in court.

R. Kelly's life has been in shambles ever since the Lifetime series Surviving R. Kelly debuted. The docuseries explored Kelly's sexual history, which is riddled with accusations of sexual, mental, and physical assault. Over 50 people were interviewed, and the long list of accusations has turned the world against R. Kelly. Artists he wrote songs for or collaborated with are shunning him, while two cities are asking witnesses and victims to come forward so a proper investigation can be done. Radio stations are starting to ban Kells music, and it appears the legend is about to watch his entire legacy disappear before his eyes.

According to TMZ, sources close to Kells are claiming that he is not worried about the artists that are cutting him off and disowning him. He is dismissing artists like Lady Gaga, B2K, Celine Dion, and others as "phonies" who are desperate to look good in the public eye. On the other hand. Kells is completely freaking out about Surviving R. Kelly. He sent a cease and desist letter to Lifetime days before they aired the series, demanding that it be shelved. Now, Kells is doing everything in his power to strike back at Lifetime. TMZ reports he has been attempting to find dirt on executives who work for the network while he also works with a legal team to dissect the content in the docuseries.

I wonder if people forgot that Elvis met his wife when she was 14 and called underage girls “cherries”. Or that David Bowie slept with underage groupies. Or that John Lennon beat women. Or that Rick James tortured a woman for 20 hours. We can leave music too, Albert Einstein was racist. Gandhi openly hated black people. I’m not saying Kellz is innocent. He should definitely go to jail for the atrocities he has committed. I’m just saying I’m not gonna stop listening to him, or the Beatles, or Bowie because of what they did.

WHAT WILL YOU DO. HOW WOULD YOU HANDLE THIS.. SEE it's very easy for us to talk about it. But let's take 5 minutes and put ourselves in their shoes. It's 2019. they just lock BILL COSBY UP AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. we sick of this shit ..whose gonna make this change. Whose gonna stand up or ALL OF US THAT HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM..who. we supposed to lead by EXAMPLE. YOU CNT ALWAYS BLAME some of these parents when the girls lied about their ages. I blame all even down to CHICAGO PD. cuz he had to have paid some of these people off . Hell I will not worry either but JUSTICE NEEDS TO BE DONE IN THIS SITUATION. . I SUPPORT EVERY STATE THAT HITS HIS ASS WITH ALLEGATIONS.

Lmfao at " REAL PARENTS " are the only " REAL PARENTS " those that have daughters? What about those with SONS, UNCLES, NEPHEWS, FATHERS. How many " MEN " have been wrongly accused and incarcerated by false accusations from angry, bitter woman? How many girls have lied about their age to a man and when the truth comes out, the man pays the price? I guess men don't have " REAL PARENTS "

I’m glad Kelly is relevant again🤫

Not to long ago girl were married at 14...morality is volatile and I stand with R Kelly even if I don't really listeb to his music (ignition remix is a classic tho). But most of all fuck all the fake outrage, everyone just want to appear like saint when they have the chance to throw stones at someone...

Just because for years, nasty, perverted men, have been making the rules does not make it right. In other countries little girls of the age of 9 are being given into marriage to old fucks. Let our little girls grow up, develop and learn to make grown up decisions when they're grown. All men want young girls for is to fuck. Laws should change and morality should increase and we should want better. Not too long ago it was ok (moral) for white people to own slaves (our people), that shit has ALWAYS BEEN WRONG. Just like marrying our young girls to old pervs. Too many fucking pedophiles in the world. I say cut their dicks off and kill them all. Not all people in the past did things with the understanding that it was wrong, it came from a place of ignorance sometimes, but R. Kelly that bitch is NASTY & he knows what the fuck he was doing. Fuck him, his whack ass music and his old herpes having dick.

Honestly I find it weird how y’all can listen to step in the name of love. He openly brags about being the Pied Piper of r&b and he openly admits in many of his songs how he loves younger women. You guys are really listening to songs about mans pedophilia. Disgusting!

Do we not forget that some of the alleged victims were well over age. Rkelly has admitted to nothing. On the other hand what should happen is the two 35 yr old women that admitted to having sexual relations with teen girls, should be charged instead of people feeling sorry for them. They are just nasty, women trying to make money off of him.

Great point...they are not innocent in all this mess. I wonder how much lifetime has paid them for their so called assault???

I'm just wondering when they will be charged for sexual assault of a minor and they admitted on national TV.... Great job lifetime burning Kelly but applauding those disgusting women. Women wanted equality and be treated like men. Wheres the justice wheres the equality.....

I'm just going to say this, if we can continue to listen to songs like "Proud Mary" for example, then we damn sure can listen to R.Kelly! People are tearing him into shreds, bt I'm not getting a lot of the same energy from my fellow Americans when it comes to the parents of these young girls! If you ask me, they should be a more fluent part in this conversation! This part has me puzzled, and quite frankly the saying "pimpin ain't dead" comes to my mind frequently when I here about this story! Anyway, Kells not right, but also we're not wrong for still enjoying his musical genius! Just as "Proud Mary", and other songs that comes from controversial artist get us up and brightens our days. R. Kelly songs can't just not exist! Our main objective people, are to be entertained!

Harold, they're Groupies! You know what a groupie is right? An ardent fan of a celebrity, esp a pop star: originally, often a girl who followed the members of a pop group on tour in order to have sexual relations with them. An enthusiastic follower of some activity. a political groupie. Wake up people. The PC culture is totally out of hand!

Fucking groupies is fine. Lurking underage groupies and then weeding out the weak ones to use them as sex slaves is fucked up & wrong.

@the mod squad : Stop thinking that undeage girls are so damn innocent! Remember that it was a 14 year old girl with a fake ID that got Akon sent to jail. Diddy got a 16 year old girl pregnant. All male celebrities have been with underaged girls. These girls with the make up and the way they dress look over 18! They only cry rape when Mommy and Daddy find out. They are guilty of not knowing where their daughters were. Who took their underage daughter to an R Kelly concert? ThE so called victims told their scripted and rehearsed lies with a camera in their face, and a check in their hand. So why are they so credible now? All the artist who want to pull their collaborations with R Kelly, MAKE SURE YOU PULL THE MONEY OUT OF THE BANK THAT YOU MADE! Lady Gaga you haven't been nominated for an Oscar yet and l hope you lose to Glenn Close AGAIN! #MUTEHYPOCRISY

I feel like it's pretty much fact that he did it all, but he's right these people are all desperate to look good in public eye. If Gaga and people really didn't fuck w him they could just remove their music and not comment on it but instead they all gotta post long things in their iPhone note pages about how they stand with survivors and stuff and it's like lowkey obvious at that point they trying too hard

Yo, one of David Lee Roth's Roadies invited me to a party at the Vertical Club in LA back in the day. I am not anyone's groupie -- so no -- but thanks for asking. I didn't know it then, but allegedly DLR paid his people [Roadies, Security, Handlers] a bonus if he slept with the Groupie they picked. So, why are we acting brand new? We're being stage managed people...

And that is your perogative. Who are you trying to convince? The rest of the world or are you trying to make yourself feel better about your position? I don't care none about any of the people you mentioned, so it doesn't bother me any. I never liked R. Kelly stuff much anyway. He's been a non factor in my life. His music has never inspired me in any way. Furthermore, if he ever touched a daughter of mine at any age but specifically the age of 12,13,14, he would've not been alive to sing another song. What happens is when we know better, we should do better.
