New York – Pressure on American musician R. Kelly rising due to allegations of abuse. In the new documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" at the transmitter's lifetime, many women see talking, accusing the 51-year-old sexual assault. Tarana Burke, founder of the # MeToo movement, and singer John Legend are also critical. Kelly has "caused so much harm to so many people," Legend says.
The six-hour episodes record the long list of claims against Kelly. Women report how Kelly allegedly molested her as a teenager, sexually assaulting her or controlling her life. "No one cared because we were black girls," says author Mikki Kendall in the series. The claims date back to the 90s. Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations. In the song "I admit" he had recently spoken to him about a "fucking big conspiracy" and called the allegations "ridiculous". (APA / dpa)
