Disturbing details of R. Kelly and Aaliyah's marriage have Twitter completely disgusted

On Thursday, Lifetime debuted their highly-anticipated six-part documentary series, Surviving R. Kelly, where more than 50 interviewees revealed new allegations of sexual, mental, and physical abuse by the singer.

"I believe these women and don´t give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist", he said.

"That was her, for sure", she claims in Surviving R. Kelly.

Despite the legal threat, Lifetime has chose to move forward with its plans to air its six-hour documentary starting tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

During Friday's episode, Michelle Kramer recounts how her daughter Gardner, then working as a dental assistant in Chicago, fell into Kelly's circle, with the singer eventually asking that she move to Atlanta.

"Surviving R. Kelly" will air in three installments starting tonight through January 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. "I should have never introduced her to him", she added. In the docuseries, Kelly's former mentee Stephanie "Sparkle" Edwards, claims that the girl in the videos was her niece, whom she introduced to Kelly at 12. Number one: There was a girl when she was even trying to talk about it and she couldn't, and I remember Aaliyah trying to talk about it and she couldn't.

Aaliyah's mother Diane Haughton has adamantly denied the accusation and said it was "lies and fabrications", and accused Jovante of attempting to "sabotage Aaliyah's legacy".

"Speaking on "Surviving R. Kelly", Legend says: "'I Believe I Can Fly' is a powerful song and it inspired a lot of people, it was just massive".

Viewers also responded on social media, expressing outrage over the stories and concern about the complicity of witnesses.

How long was Andrea Kelly married to R Kelly? When I told him, he said, 'No, that didn't happen.' And I said, 'Yes it did.' And Robert said, 'No it didn't.' And I left it alone. In February 2003, Kelly released his fifth studio album the Chocolate Factory which spawned the hits "Ignition" and "Step in the Name of Love".

According to Billboard, Kelly's legal representatives have threatened Lifetime with a lawsuit suggesting that the documentary defames Kelly. Kelly's attorneys and spokespeople defended his innocence following the article's publication.
