R. Kelly has reportedly threatened to sue the Lifetime Television Network for the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series that premieres on Thursday (January 3). According to TMZ, Kells wants the series pulled or he will take legal action.
Attorney Brian Nix, who fired off a legal letter, alleges Surviving R. Kelly is brimming with lies. Nix plans to file a federal lawsuit Thursday if the network airs the show.
The six-part series will dive into Kelly’s controversial past and include several interviews with his alleged victims, family members and former employees. One of those employees, backup singer Jovante Cunningham, claims to have seen Kelly having sex with Aaliyah who was just 15 at the time.
