Dash claims that Jay-Z knew that R. Kelly had "violated" Aaliyah, but chose to work with Kelly anyway.

Numerous women came forward in the docuseries in which friends, family, and accusers opened up about their alleged relationships with Kelly, 51, who has been accused of pursuing relationships with underage women - several of whom he allegedly met at the mall or high schools.

TMZ reports that Kelly also plans to launch a website for the same goal.

Following the "Surviving R Kelly" documentary, which saw new evidence claim that R Kelly had an underage sexual relationship with 15-year-old Aaliyah, a wedding certificate reportedly from the pair's secret wedding has leaked online. In the series he says: "Time's up for R. Kelly".

R. Kelly has come under fire once again in the aftermath of Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series, which delved into the many allegations of sexual abuses levelled against the singer.

For that reason, producer Dream Hampton has publicly apologized for including Charlamagne in the docuseries, taking to Twitter to explain her reasoning before ultimately conceding that she made a mistake.

John Legend was the biggest name who agreed to speak on camera, making him a hero to Hampton, along with the courageous women who came forward to talk about their alleged experiences with Kelly.

Families of young women are still claiming that their daughters are being held captive by R. Kelly as 'sex slaves'.

R. Kelly has never acted alone; he's had a host of friends and employees that not only have allegedly stood by while he victimized women and girls but in some cases have also aided him, which makes them responsible too.

And on Spotify, streams of his music even increased by 16 percent after "Surviving R. Kelly" premiered. R. Kelly has continually denied all claims, ever since they were first publicly reported in 2000.

"We were out on the road with Aaliyah", she says. "The women in #SurvivingRKelly are our heroes".
