John Legend Slams R.Kelly In New Documentary: I ‘Don’t Give A F**k About Protecting A Serial Child Rapist’

Popular singer John Legend, who appears in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, has slammed his fellow colleague in the music industry during his interview in the final episode, which airs on Saturday.

“R. Kelly has brought so much pain to so many people,” the musician said, adding that “#TimesUp for R. Kelly.”

Legend is the only major artist to appear in the series.

R Kelly Threatens To Sue Lifetime Over Documentary Claiming He Slept With Aaliyah When She Was 15

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the musician’s back-up singer Jovante Cunningham had claimed in the documentary that she saw Kelly having sex with 15-year-old Aaliyah – among other new shocking allegations about the singer abusing multiple women.

Lifetime’s new documentary Surviving R. Kelly is centred on interviews from his accusers and those that have lived through the singer’s abuse over the years.

The documentary features R.Kelly’s former girlfriends, wife, and women who all alleged that at one time or the other, they were abused and molested by the music star.

Bear in mind that R Kelly had threatened to sue Lifetime over allegations made in the documentary.

However, shortly after the airing of the first two episodes on Thursday, Legend took to Twitter to expound on why he chose to participate.

“To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn’t feel risky at all,” he tweeted. “I believe these women and don’t give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision.”

Meanwhile, the remaining episodes air Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
