John Legend is one of the only major artists to blast R. Kelly after many more details of abuse and pedophilia were detailed in Lifetime’s new Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.
John said in the final episode on Saturday. “R. Kelly has brought so much pain to so many people,” the musician said. “#TimesUp…” The series broke ratings records for Lifetime when the first episode premiered on January 3rd. The debut garnered 1.9 million total viewers, the network’s best performance in more than two years.
Chance The Rapper took to Twitter to apologize for working with R. Kelly after describing their collaboration as a “mistake.” He was also featured in an episode talking about their 2015 collaboration, and admitted initially he “didn’t value” the stories of the women. He has now seen the error of his ways.
