While most people are emotionally gearing up for the Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, Kelly’s lawyer might be drafting a lawsuit over the whole thing.
TMZ reports R. Kelly’s lawyer sent a letter to Lifetime saying the documentary is filled with nothing but lies. Nix has threatened to file a federal lawsuit today (Thursday).
Not coincidentally, the first episode is due to air Thursday night. The six-part series features people who used to be close to R. Kelly coming forward with stories of sexual, physical and mental abuse of women.
Kelly says the allegations are false. He claims he has audio recordings where Lifetime admits that several of the women in the special are “lying.”
