One of the more shocking allegations to emerge from the series is the claim from a former R. Kelly backup performer that she saw him and Aaliyah engaged in sex when the young singer was only 15-years old. "Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation". Kelly claims the allegations were made by people who just wanted to be famous. Below we answer some of your burning questions.

Ruiz says she will still enjoy Kelly's music, but will be more conscious about where her money goes. Joann, his eldest, was born in 1998; Jay, born Jaya, was born in 2000; and his youngest, Robert Jr., was born in 2002. The article reveals how Kelly was sued for $10 million by aspiring singer Tiffany "Tia" Hawkins, who began having a sexual relationship with Kelly in 1991, when she was 15 and he was 24. But to hear the extent of it confirmed by his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, was a strong, compelling moment Thursday night. The couple were married for 13 years before finalizing their divorce in 2009.

Legend is one of a handful of A-list performers who's appearing in a new documentary Surviving R.Kelly, where those closest to the singer detail their experiences with him.

The marriage was annulled after Aaliyah's family became aware of it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Has any of the allegations affected his children?

Weiss served as Jive's chief executive during Kelly's solo debut on the label in 1993 and through the singer's 2000s child pornography case before departing in 2011. Martinez said Kelly also had people follow her.

Hampton discussed with the Detroit Free Press how she had asked other celebrities and musicians to participate in the series, but they declined. "[Questlove] was like, 'I would do anything for you but I can't do this.' It's not because they support him, it's because it's so messy and muddy". Remember what I'm about to say next.

Aaliyah met Kelly though Barry Hankerson, her uncle and his manager.

Lifetime has said that Surviving R. Kelly aims to "shed a light on controversial R&B star R. Kelly, whose history of alleged abuse of underage African American girls has until recently been largely ignored by mainstream media". R. Kelly isn't someone like Bill Cosby, who incurred national attention about sex crimes after a joke about the semi-obscure charges against him went viral.
