Chance the Rapper apologises for working with R. Kelly”

During the final episode of the Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly", the Chicago rapper admits that it was a "mistake" when he recorded a song with Kelly. Like many of Kelly's other underage victims, she claims he was abusive and controlling. "Let me know", Smith concluded in the clip.

Jada promised to address the R. Kelly documentary and all the reactions to it during a Facebook Live chat on Wednesday (09Jan19).

Had an alleged sexual relationship with a 15-year-old Tiffany Hawkins in 1991 when he was 24. According to TMZ, a person in Kelly's camp revealed the singer's thoughts on the film.

Over the past 25 years, R. Kelly has sold 60 million albums, sold out national tours and accrued millions of streams and radio plays. On the last installment of the docu-series, Chance eloquently spoke about how his own lack of awareness led to him working with R. Kelly. "I never wanted no parts of that", and says he donated his portion of the proceeds to a breast cancer organization supported by Aaliyah.

The marriage was annulled after Aaliyah's family became aware of it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. "We will vigorously resist this attempted public lynching of a Black man who has made extraordinary contributions to our culture".

"Calling in a noncredible threat to the NYPD to interrupt our screening is an act of desperation from people who don't want these truths shared with the world", executive producer and showrunner Dream Hampton said in an email to CNN at the time.

Meanwhile, Kelly's publicist at the time, Regina Daniels, said of the pair's professional parting at the time: "It ended with, 'Maybe we're over our heads, maybe this is too much, maybe we need to go our separate ways". From covering bruises and saying you "bumped into the counter" to telling his co-workers he a wonderful provider and a "good man" to avoid a beating for saying the opposite.I was you!

In 2008, the Cook County jury on the case deliberated for 7½ hours before finding the R&B star, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, not guilty on all 14 counts.

If you or someone you know think they are being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) now for anonymous, confidential help, available 24/7. "R. Kelly got his name back".

Kelly has maintained the allegations are all false and he has threatened to sue Lifetime bosses for airing the documentary. John Legend agreed to appear though, and so did Chance the Rapper.
