R&B icon R. Kelly didn’t tune into Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries. The music veteran reportedly decided not to watch the three-night premiere and believes the project is a personal vendetta against him.

According to Kells’ camp, the singer is “disgusted” by the docuseries and believes it’s fueled through hate.

We’re told R. Kelly’s team downloaded him on the various people who appeared on the show and he claims he doesn’t even know half of them. He claims the other half hate him for various personal and professional reasons. R. Kelly also claims there were various people who wanted to go on camera and defend him but producers shut them out. The sources say R. Kelly is resolute — as one source put it, “He’s going to sue everybody who had anything to do with this.” (TMZ)

R&B veteran Tank came forward this weekend to apologize for supporting Kelly.

I lot of artists, song writers, producers, record execs, etc are very confused as to how to respond to what they’ve seen and heard. We’ve all been inspired by this man. We’ve all been witnesses to his musical genius. We have shaped and molded talent we sign after his musical image. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into this man that it’s hard for us to let go. I no longer have that issue. I whole heartedly apologize for not coming to this realization sooner. I CANOT separate the music from the monster! My 3 black daughters won’t let me. What hurts even more are the facilitators around him. His team, his record company, the promoters, the radio stations! There has to be a line drawn. Enough has to be enough at some point. Who are we saying is worth protecting if we let this continue? I choose the lives of these young black girls! I’m sick to my stomach! Let me also say this! There are more men guilty of these crimes! Lets make sure none of them slip through the cracks every again! You are no king because kings don’t treat queens like this! #RnBMoney #TheGeneral
