Last night was the debut of the highly anticipated Surviving R. Kelly documentary that premiered on the Lifetime Network.
Producer Dream Hampton admits she was turned down by nearly every celebrity she asked to participate…
According to Shadow Act:
“John Legend was the only one. I asked Jay-Z, I asked Mary J. Blige, I asked Lil Kim, Erykah Badu, Dave Chappelle…I mean, most people just don’t want to touch it. I remember Ahmir [”Questlove” Thompson] was like, ‘I would do anything for you but I can’t do this.’ It’s not because they support him, it’s because it’s so messy and muddy. It’s that turning away that has allowed this to go on.”
As you know R. Kelly is now threatening to sue Lifetime over the documentary and John Legend deems R. Kelly a serial child rapist. Check out tweets below..
