The first part of the documentary aired last night with commentary from Legend, condemning R. Kelly for the heinous acts he committed against young girls.

Stephanie "Sparkle" Edwards, an a former backup singer for Kelly and the aunt of the unnamed underage girl in the sex tape, introduced Kelly to the alleged victim, a meeting that still "haunts" her, according to an emotional clip from the documentary. The Clarys admit that they had heard the rumors about R. Kelly's conduct but determined that because he had not been convicted, and they wanted to support their daughter's talents, they would allow her contact with the declining star, but only under constant supervision. She then dances to songs from the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls, before the two begin to have sex, with the girl calling the man "daddy", a name that Kelly has reportedly been having all of his girlfriends call him for decades.

'I thought I was going to die in the back of the Hummer because of what he had done'.

'I apologise to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out'.

It includes interviews with musicians, family members and former entourage members speaking out against Kelly, and also addresses his relationship with the late-singer, Aaliyah.

We were out on the road with Aaliyah. "I made a mistake and I'm happy that those women are getting voices now and I can grow to understand better what my positioning should be or should've been when that opportunity came". "On a tour bus, there really aren't many confined spaces". So I took it, and I kept it on me, and when I got a chance to go back to my hotel room, I left it at my hotel room. So, it just so happened we were all laying in our bunks and the curtains are open, everybody's communicating, laughing, when the [room] door flew open on the bus.

Cunningham has since released a statement to PEOPLE, saying she stands by her account. "Robert said 'I do.' Him and Aaliyah".

"Whoever this woman is, I have never seen her before anywhere on planet earth, until now", Ms Houghton added. Gardner's mother Michelle Kramer, found out from a friend that her daughter was seeing R. Kelly.

Kelly's legal team sent a letter to Lifetime warning the company that should the six-part docuseries air as intended, Kelly would file a federal lawsuit on the same day.

Conway was once the basketball coach of the young Oak Park girl who allegedly appears in the infamous sex tape that almost sent Kelly to jail. However, the network moved forward with airing the show anyway on Thursday.
