Chance the Rapper Says Working With R. Kelly Was a "Mistake"

Chance the Rapper Says Working With R. Kelly Was a

Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docu-series was trending across social media since it premiered last week, with the six-part series concluding this past weekend.

A synopsis for the series on Lifetime's website reads: "In the ground-breaking documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, women are emerging from the shadows and uniting their voices to share their stories".

The sources say that R. Kelly wants to sue despite never watching an episode of the series.

Chance also shared a clip of the interview which gives context to the original quote. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour.

She said: "How is it that R Kelly's music sales have spiked (substantially) since the release of the docuseries Surviving R Kelly?". DeRogatis alleged the singer was holding multiple women, potentially against their will, at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago, in what was called a "sex cult". Kelly isolated them, punished them, required them to ask permission to eat and use the bathroom, told them not to make eye contact or speak with anyone else, and beat them, all while sexually debasing them and videotaping the process.

She is choosing to remain silent for the moment, though more than a dozen victims who claim to have been raped, enslaved and abused while underage by Kelly have spoken out in the documentary. We talked to him about new concerns raised in the docuseries that suggest police departments in at least 2 cities may have been protecting Kelly from parents looking for their children believed to be held up in his various homes over the years.

A conversation has also arisen surrounding the notion of sexual assault victims and race, with many pointing out that if these women had been black, their stories may have ended differently. Chance recorded "Somewhere in Paradise" with Kelly in 2015. "We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he said. Some of his crimes have been extremely public, like his sexual relationship and marriage to his protégée Aaliyah when she was just 15, to say nothing of the video that showed him urinating in a 14-year-old girl's mouth and that was long metabolized into the culture as a punchline. "But black women are, you know, exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people, like just in comparison to the whole world".
