Ever since the six-part documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, aired on Lifetime, R. Kelly has been the center of an ongoing investigation in his hometown of Chicago.
The R&B singer can’t escape the new wave of attention that this docuseries has given him.
R. Kelly hasn’t been hit with any charges as of yet, but he’s been suffering from panic attacks that require full medical attention.
The singer has been dealing with these sudden panic attacks ever since the documentary aired last week.
The internet has been on fire ever since the documentary’s debut and they haven’t backed down.
Surviving R. Kelly addressed the exploitation of Aaliyah and featured testimonies about his predatory and abusive behavior.
Several celebrities have spoken out about against the singer on social media.
The firestorm has also led Lady Gaga to break ties with R. Kelly and have their song “Do What You Want” removed from iTunes.
R. Kelly doesn’t like the attention he’s been receiving lately.
The panic attacks have gotten so bad that he’s currently seeking treatment at a hospital.
R. Kelly can’t take the heat he’s been getting from celebrities, the media, and the general public.
Sources told TMZ that he’s shocked that people are siding with the victims.
But that hasn’t stopped R. Kelly from making shameless public appearances though.
On Wednesday night, he made an appearance at a nightclub at V75 Chicago on his birthday.
He was surrounded by screaming fans as he grabbed a microphone and declared that he did nothing wrong.
Law enforcement claims a different story. According to the Cook County State Attorney’s Office, R. Kelly held two women against their will in his Trump Tower residence.
Five officers rushed to the home and ordered R. Kelly to come to the door while they questioned the two women.
Both women claimed they were there on their own free will and nothing suspicious was going on.
The two women were named Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, both of which have claimed they were there to be with R. Kelly, despite their parents’ previous claims that he brainwashes his victims.
This comes after multiple women came forward in 2017 with their own stories about R. Kelly’s alleged sex cult.
He allegedly grooms his young victims, making them dependent upon him, and uses confinement, physical abuse, and starvation as forms of punishment.
Cook County State Attorney Kimberly Foxx has urged R. Kelly’s victims to come forward.
The hotline has been lighting up ever since she made that statement.
It doesn’t like the firestorm from Surviving R. Kelly is going to die down anytime soon.
Hopefully, for the sake of the victims, this docuseries will finally kill his career.
