(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly's controversial private life is to be explored in a new U.S. TV documentary series and movie.
Lifetime network bosses announced on Monday that they have ordered two projects delving into allegations of sexual and psychological abuse surrounding the veteran R&B star.
In a press release, they claimed the programs will both seek "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."
While activist and cultural commentator Dream Hampton, who will executive produce the documentary, stated: "Some very brave black women have trusted us with their stories, their truth and their trauma. They are survivors and I'm honored to share their stories with the world."
The 51-year-old's former girlfriend also alleged in a recent BBC documentary that he told her he had groomed a 14-year-old.
Kelly, who was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008, has repeatedly denied the allegations in statements issued via his publicists.
Members of the anti-harassment and equality organization also called on U.S. authorities to investigate women's allegations against him more thoroughly.
