Singer R. Kelly is reportedly planning to launch a website to discredit the women in Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly documentary.

Dream Hampton, the producer, author, and filmmaker who helmed the series, said to reporters from the Detroit Free Press that it was challenging to get celebrities and others to come forward in relation to R. Kelly's case because of his status in the scene.

Kelly has long denied all accusations, and many musicians declined the opportunity to speak out against him in the docu-series. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour.

According to Fast Company, the page, which had over 5,000 likes before being taken down, included several posts that contained images and screenshots of text messages, supposedly from Kelly's accusers. The Facebook page links to a YouTube video which claims Asante's daughter has debunked her mother's claims of sexual abuse and control at the hands of Kelly in a leaked phone convo with her BF, allegedly telling him she often raved of a luxurious lifestyle and the perks of being with him. She also alleged in a lawsuit against Kelly that he intentionally infected her with herpes. Fourteen-year-old fan Jerhonda Pace was among those who showed up in support, and two years later, they had sex.

Former R. Kelly protégé Sparkle has finally offered some clarity over why she introduced her pre-teen niece to the singer even though she suspected at the time that he was having sexual relations with young, underage girls. "It is my hope that her and I can engage in a dialogue in a place where she feels comfortable to discuss our relationship and her feelings".

Chance followed his tweet Saturday by writing, "Anyone mentioning that I have black women in my family is deliberately missing the point".

John Legend was also in the show, which has prompted many to praise him to shirking the "boys club" mentality that exists in a number of industries.

And there have been black women activists protesting since his trial in 2008, since his indictment in 2002, since my first story in December of 2000. "It's just prevalent in all media", he says in the clip. "But black women are, you know, exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people, like just in comparison to the whole world".

That same article originally wrote that Chance said that "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women".

"The Cook County State's Attorney's Office has not been provided with information from law enforcement regarding any alleged victims of sexual assault involving entertainer R. Kelly".
