The docuseries featured dozens of women, former employees and music celebrities all claiming that Kelly preyed on underage girls and sexually, physically and mentally abused them. But it seems his time is up with the arrival of Surviving R Kelly, a series made by Lifetime.
R. Kelly's lawyer spoke out in defense of the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer in a pre-taped interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" this morning.
"Surviving R. Kelly" follows the BBC's "R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes", which was released a year ago. "The man was not operating a harem, or a sex cult, or holding people hostage or anything like that".
After the documentary aired, singer Lady Gaga vowed to remove a duet she recorded with Kelly from streaming services and never collaborate with him again.
"I haven't heard from a prosecutor's office".
"He gets royalties from his songwriting", said Greenberg.
He could not say whether Kelly, 52, ever met the women interviewed in the Lifetime show, "met them one night when he was drinking and partying" or even whether he might have lived with them. However it was not necessary to clarify whether there was any truth to their claims as they didn't go to the police or provide and physical evidence, he said.
Greenberg noted the timing of documentary, after sexual misconduct allegations that have derailed the careers of several famous men.
