My intention was to create something extremely challenging and provocative, because he was angry and still not coped with the trauma… If I could go back and talk to the younger version of myself, I would advise yourself to go to a therapist,” — said the singer to fans.
In may 2018 person R. Kelly has become very recognizable and controversial, not only because of its creativity. 20-year-old girl had accused the singer in the systematic abuse in their side.

For example, John legend, who took part in the filming of the movie, said: “For anyone telling me what I’m brave that appeared in the film — it wasn’t risky at all. I believe these women, and I don’t care about protecting a serial rapist. An easy decision”.
Cara Delevingne used the screenshot of the comment of the artist for his remarks on instagram:”I just finished to watch the movie Surviving R. Kelly, and I’m shocked and outraged, how long it lasted. I wholeheartedly sympathize with the victims of his psychological and physical violence, and their families. This man is a predator that feeds on power, and, in my opinion, much worse than Harvey Weinstein, he should be punished. I’m not trying to compare them, the point is that Harvey is under investigation, but Kelly — no. We are to blame in a situation I knew about the charges, however, are unable to understand the gravity of the situation. I continued to listen to his music. Stop trying to separate art from artist if the person has the voice of an angel, this does not mean that he himself is an angel.”
