Lifetime released two new trailers for its upcoming docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, on Wednesday.
The network’s website describes the series saying, “For the first time ever, survivors and people from R. Kelly’s inner circle, are coming forward with new allegations about his sexual, mental, and physical abuse. They are now finally ready to share their full story …”
“I do see myself as a victim of R. Kelly.” – Kitti Jones
The six-hour, three-part series will tell the stories of the singer’s alleged victims including his ex-wife, Andrea, Jerhonda Pace, Kitti Jones and Asante McGee.
Nearly every women featured in the trailers breaks down recalling moments of abuse. The show will include interviews with 50 individuals who were close to R. Kelly during his career.
