'Surviving R. Kelly' Producer Reveals A-List Stars Who Allegedly Declined to Appear in Lifetime Docuseries

Below we answer some of your burning questions. After this report, many people canceled Kelly amidst the #MeToo era. Bruce gave his interview from the Cook County Jail in Chicago, where he's now serving time - and that has viewers questioning why R. Kelly's brother is locked up. Joann, his eldest, was born in 1998; Jay, born Jaya, was born in 2000; and his youngest, Robert Jr., was born in 2002.

Long before the #MeToo movement reckoned with powerful men who've abused women, R. Kelly was hiding in plain sight. The couple were married for 13 years before finalizing their divorce in 2009. Gardner's mother Michelle Kramer, found out from a friend that her daughter was seeing R. Kelly.

Kelly's former backup singer, Jovante Cunningham, talked about meeting Aaliyah when she was just 12-years-old. The marriage was annulled in February 1995.

Has any of the allegations affected his children?

As RadarOnline.com reported in 2016, R. Kelly secretly constructed a "sex dungeon", a "heavily guarded" room where he allegedly lured underage girls to perform humiliating sex acts. A year later, Kelly was arrested for child pornography charges in Miami. Ever since that incident, Andrea says that her kids have been haunted by the case.

That was Lisa Van Allen, who was just 17 and believed that she was Kelly's girlfriend at the time due to the fact that she spent all her time with him and they were havcing a sexual relationship.

Carey explained he confided in his brother that he was being sexually abused "by a family member" at the time, but confessed the singer "didn't really respond" and didn't want to acknowledge what he had said. Kelly and the woman denied the video and he was never charged.

During his interview with Jamilah Lemieux, Chance stated that "making a song with R. Kelly was a mistake", referring to his 2015 song with R. Kelly and Jeremih "Somewhere in Paradise".

"I actually ended up contacting Rob and told him I had taken the tape ..."

A former employee, who spoke anonymously in the documentary, noticed Kelly's system of abusing girls revolved around isolation.

Radar readers know that R. Kelly was accused by three sets of parents in 2017 of holding six women against their will in an abusive "cult" throughout Chicago and Atlanta. But he also said that "any of us who ignored the R. Kelly stories were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls". According to TMZ, Kelly says he has has audio recordings which prove Lifetime knew "some of the girls are lying, but that the budget was too high to turn back now".
