R. Kelly’s allegedly launching an Internet campaign to expose the plethora of women who accused him of sexual abuse and misconduct in Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Sources told TMZ that Kelly’s team created survivinglies.com, which hasn’t gone live as of Monday afternoon. Meanwhile, a Facebook page called Surviving Lies began posting inflammatory information about women who appeared in the docuseries on late Sunday. However, it’s unclear whether Kelly, 51, or his team are managing the page.
For instance, the page linked to a video allegedly between the daughter of Asante McGee and McGee’s ex-boyfriend where the daughter claimed McGee often raved about her luxurious lifestyle that was afforded by Kelly. McGee was one of the women who claimed to have been one of Kelly’s sex slaves in “Surviving R. Kelly.”
TMZ broke the story a day after reporting that Kelly said he was “disgusted” by the six-part docuseries despite claiming to not have seen it. The “I Wish” singer allegedly said he believes Lifetime producers had a “vendetta” against him that has spanned throughout his professional career. Moreover, he accused the producers of denying interviews with people that would’ve vindicated him.
Kelly reportedly lobbied similar claims against his many accusers, claiming he didn’t know half of them and that they were a part of a concerted effort to destroy his career. The singer’s team reportedly informed him of the women who appeared in “Surviving R. Kelly.”
A source told the tabloid, “He’s going to sue everybody who had anything to do with this.”
