The new docu-series by Lifetime – Surviving R.Kelly has already aired its first two parts. This new show features all the accusers and witnesses of Kelly coming forward with real experiences and details of their abuse. But Kelly has threatened the channel with legal action for introducing this series. However, John Legend the only musician to appear on this docu-series is courageous enough to voice what he believes in. And has labelled his fellow singer a serial child rapist. Although Kelly has denied all allegations of verbal, physical, mental or sexual abuse against anybody, he still has to comment on Legend’s remarks about him on the project.

What Does John Legend Have to Say about R. Kelly?

The project Surviving R. Kelly which premiered on Thursday focuses on women who have been victimized by the musician in any way. Standing in support with them is popular celebrity John Legend who remains the only singer on board with the show. His participation in this controversial docu-series has been earning him a lot of appreciation. But Legend claims that he does not deserve all this praise.

In the new series, Legend has said that R. Kelly brought a lot of pain to so many people. And that now it’s #TimesUp for the accused musician. After the first episode went on air, John Legend took it to Twitter to voice his opinions further. He said that for all those people who called his courageous for his participation in the series, it didn’t feel risky for him at all. He believes all the women who came out with allegations of abuse against Kelly. And it was an early decision that he does not care about protecting a serial child rapist at all.

Later, Legend has also appreciated the nonprofit organization “A Long Walk Home” for speaking out on behalf of survivors for a long time now.

It also seems like celebrities were reluctant to be a part of this show. Despite the series Surviving R. Kelly inviting other famous personalities to be a part of it, John Legend was the only one to actually accept that offer. In fact, other musicians who had artistically collaborated with Kelly were asked to get on board. Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, and Dave Chappelle were all critical of him. But they passed on the offer which makes Legend an even bigger hero.

John Legend is currently on vacation with his wife Chrissy Teigen. And he’s more than proud for speaking up against R. Kelly.
