In the wake of Lifetime’s explosive new documentary “Surviving R. Kelly,” the singer himself is reportedly planning to fire back at all of his accusers with a new project of his own: a website called “Surviving Lies.”
Lifetime’s six-part docu-series sheds new light on the decades of sexual misconduct allegations that have followed Kelly throughout his career, from the infamous sex tape and subsequent child pornography charges he faced in 2002, to Buzzfeed’s explosive allegations that he routinely grooms young women for inclusion in a twisted sex cult. A number of Kelly’s former associates and partners took part in the documentary, with many claiming that Kelly has continued to prey on young girls for years.
Kelly, who has repeatedly denied being guilty of any sexual misconduct, is reportedly planning to expand on that point by launching a website focusing on his accusers and what he believes are their ulterior motives for making claims against him, TMZ reports.
Survivinglies.com has yet to go live, but the Facebook page of the same name has. The page’s self-described mission is to "unravel current events back to the origin. So that everything can be consider [sic] before a final decision is made.” In the "about" section, someone has written, “What they don't want you to know about the accusers.”
“To expose key facts in every conspiracy!” is listed as the page’s overview.
Asante McGee, a woman who was interviewed for Lifetime’s doc and who referred to Kelly as the “devil,” seems to be the first of Kelly’s accusers to be targeted on the “Surviving Lies” page.
The latest post targets Faith Rodgers, a woman who accused Kelly in April of grooming her in an effort to persuade her to join his rumored sex cult, and intentionally infecting her with herpes. She filed a lawsuit against Kelly soon after.
Kelly denied Rodgers’ claims in a statement to The Huffington Post, with a representative for the singer stating that he “categorically denies all claims and allegations.”
