G.O.O.D. Music’s John Legend didn’t think twice about going in-in on R. Kelly by appearing in a new Lifetime documentary centered on the R&B veteran’s personal life. The crooner has come forward to address his appearance in the TV project.

Last night, Legend went to Twitter to speak up on getting featured in “Surviving R. Kelly.”

According to reports, John will appear in the last part of the docu-series tomorrow night.

Legend, who appears in the final installment of “Surviving R. Kelly” on Saturday, spoke out against R. Kelly’s actions. Members of R. Kelly’s inner circle, his alleged victims and their family members were also featured on the program, but it was reportedly hard for Detroit author and filmmaker Dream Hampton to find any other musicians who would discuss the allegations on camera.

Last year, Legend made headlines after showing his support in an anti-Kelly movement.

In April, Legend shared his support of the #MuteRKelly movement, which was further spurred on by Women of Color of Time’s Up in an open letter that called on the music industry to cut ties with Kelly. “I stand with the women of #timesup #muterkelly,” he tweeted at the time while sharing the open letter.

This week, reports emerged about R. Kelly planning to sue Lifetime if it aired the new docu-series.

Kelly’s lawyer, Brian Nix, fired off a legal letter — obtained by TMZ — warning the network that its “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary is packed with lies. Nix threatens to file a federal lawsuit Thursday — the same day Lifetime’s set to air the special — if the network doesn’t relent. Kelly’s calling BS … saying the subjects made false allegations to become famous. What’s more … Kelly says he has 2 audio recordings — 5 minutes in duration — that show Lifetime knew “some of the girls are lying, but that the budget was too high to turn back now.” (TMZ)
