Shark Tank judge advises R. Kelly to kill himself in jail

His comments come on the heels of the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", which features interviews with women who allege Kelly preyed upon them when they were underage and abused them. That same year, one of the women allegedly being held against her will by Kelly, Jocelyn Savage, released a video meant to combat accusations against Kelly, Heavy reported.

Those girls, now women, are the focus of Surviving R. Kelly, an extremely effective piece of entertainment journalism-though it may be more accurate to think of it as an extremely effective piece of activist entertainment journalism. In a bombshell 2017 BuzzFeed News report, Savage's parents described these living conditions as a "cult".

Following the release of Part 1 of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries on Lifetime on the U.S., R. Kelly's legal team sent a letter warning the company that should the six-part docuseries air as intended, Kelly would file a federal lawsuit.

There has been no word from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.

Kelly documentary, has brought to light the singer's alleged sexual, mental and physical abuse that has gone unacknowledged for years - and now stars who have both worked with the disgraced singer and were fans of his work, have spoken out against him.

A Chicago prosecutor said on Tuesday that her office has been in touch with two families related to allegations against Kelly since the series aired. At the time, Kelly's publicist denied previous allegations, saying they were "made up by individuals known to be dishonest".

Investigators have also reportedly asking for contact information from "others who have lived in Kelly's former Atlanta home or have direct knowledge of what happened in the home" as well.

A source close to the singer reportedly told TMZ R Kelly was "disgusted" with the allegations he has faced in the series.

On August 31, 1994, R. Kelly, 27, illegally married Aaliyah, who was only 15 years old, in Chicago. The page paints Kelly as someone "surviving lies".
