R. Kelly Under Criminal Investigation in Georgia

Now that Lifetime's full six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly has aired, many have been anticipating what R. Kelly himself has to say about the shocking claims and allegations that were brought against him throughout the series.

Following the "Surviving R. Kelly" finale, Jada Pinkett Smith, Chance the Rapper and other celebrities are asking, "Do black girls' lives matter?"

The police have also contacted Joycelyn Savage and ordered her to come in for questioning. In the docuseries, McGee claims she met Kelly when she was 35, and that he treated her as if she was his personal sex slave. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour.

Their investigation centres on what may have happened at the singer's Atlanta home.

"With regards to the post that is in circulation of Drea Kelly singing 'Happy People, ' this in no way should be perceived as an extension of support for R. Kelly, but should be viewed as a statement of her strength and not having been defeated", said the statement continues. "Straight up. You shouldn't have even been on TV, and if you a parent, you shouldn't be on that unless you on CNN from a jail cell".

After being accused of rape allegations of his former girlfriend, rapper Towkio has commented on claims of sexual harassment while encouraging the opportunity for open dialogue between the two involved parties.

Player of the game: Baker Mayfield
Mayfield also dropped a flawless 38-yard strike over the shoulder of Antonio Callaway on the four-play drive. Baltimore leads the series 29-10 and is 18-3 against the Browns under Harbaugh, who took over in 2008.

The "Surviving R Kelly" documentary has sparked a wave of fresh #MuteRKelly protests online, whilst the likes of John Legend have also publicly labelled the R&B star a "serial child rapist" - but the "Ignition" star is planning on hitting back.

In 2013, Gaga and R. Kelly collaborated for the female singer's "Do What U Want". "It's just prevalent in all media", he said.

"That's a scene you see...slavery for a lot of people, they envision men in chains, but black women are exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people just in comparison to the whole world. Maybe I didn't care because I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women". See the recent string of tweets, including the interview clip in question, below.

In a legal letter written by Kelly's lawyer Brian Nix and obtained by TMZ, a federal lawsuit is threatened for Thursday, the same day the documentary aired, if the program wasn't pulled.

The move has angered many Gaga fans, given her public history of supporting sexual assault victims.

Over the past 25 years, R. Kelly has sold 60 million albums, sold out national tours and accrued millions of streams and radio plays.
