What is Surviving R Kelly Part II: The Reckoning ?
Lifetime’s docu-series Surviving R. Kelly debuted earlier this year and gave light to victims who's sexual abuse stories were previously in the dark.
The documentary focusses on the allegations that the singer sexually abused underage girls (which have been public record since his 2008 trial on child pornography charges, of which he was acquitted).
