(AllHipHop News) It appears someone was trying a full court press to defend Robert Kelly following the scathing Surviving R. Kelly docuseries. A Facebook page under the name "Surviving Lies" went live earlier this week.
According to TMZ, Facebook shut down the account for posting text messages between Kelly and one of his accusers. A representative for the social media platform stated, "We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other’s private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware."
There are also reports that images from an alleged sex tape featuring an accuser were uploaded to the Facebook page. On Surviving R. Kelly, some of the alleged victims and people from Kelly's camp said that he would purposely collect information, get coerced statements, and save elicit footage of his accusers to use as collateral against the women.
It's not clear who set up the Facebook account, but TMZ claimed Kelly and his team were planning to launch a website called survivinglies.com. The GoDaddy site is not active. Meanwhile, Surviving R. Kelly producer Dream Hampton has questions about particular media coverage of Kelly.
"I would like to know what kind of relationship [TMZ] has with R. Kelly & his mgmt team. You produced the video of Joycelyn Savage where she's being off camera directed by his team, you produced clips showing her shopping as evidence she was 'free.' Who do you work for?" tweeted Hampton on Monday.
