Is R. Kelly planning to launch a website to “expose” his accusers?
Scott Legato/Getty ImagesR. Kelly has reportedly found a way to discredit his accusers, who, he claims, lied in the Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly.
Sources tell TMZ that Kelly’s camp is working to launch a new website titled survivinglies.com, which will attempt to expose his accusers and highlight their real motivations. The site, which has yet to be launched, currently has a Facebook page associated with it.
One of the accusers that Kelly’s team plans to discredit is Asante McGee, who was recently featured on the Lifetime doc and claimed she was one of Kelly’s “sex slaves.”
In a video posted on the “Surviving Lies” Facebook page, a woman who the site claims is Asante’s daughter is heard telling her now ex-boyfriend that her mom often raved about the perks of being with Kelly. This seemingly contradicts McGee’s claims of being sexually abused and controlled by the singer.
The video also goes on to highlight McGee’s previous arrests and claims that she is working with the father of another alleged “sex slave,” Joycelyn Savage, to extort the singer.
As previously reported, Kelly threatened to file a federal lawsuit against Lifetime if they didn’t pull the plug on series. The doc, which aired over the weekend, examined how Kelly’s star power allegedly allowed him to brainwash, manipulate and abuse numerous women.
It also featured interviews with people who were once affiliated with Kelly’s inner circle, as well as women who were reportedly pulled into his alleged “sex cult.”
