Lifetime’s explosive exposé Surviving R. Kelly concluded over the weekend, but it’s definitely still at the forefront on the minds of many. From finding out where his tactical and manipulative behavior stemmed from to realizing his sex cult is far more controlled and devastating than most could’ve presumed, the docu-series provided insight as to who R. Kelly is along with the jaw-dropping details of his inner-workings and abuse (psychological, emotional and physical).
After the series finale, it was reported that, although the Chicago crooner had not seen the show, he was “disgusted” by the plethora of women speaking out and claimed they had a “vendetta” against him. Now, Robert is preparing to have the final say. According to TMZ, the self-dubbed Pied Piper “vows to expose his accusers for [their] blatant lies” on his new website, entitled “Surviving Lies.”
His first rumored “target” is Asante McGee, a woman who lived in the house allegedly used to house his “sex slaves.” In a leaked phone conversation from last September, Asante’s daughter is speaking with her mother’s ex-boyfriend and the two laughed over Asante’s alternate versions of her stories. They claimed she was a free woman who was able to leave at will and often spoke highly of her “lavish lifestyle.” The video also addresses Asante’s arrests and stated she planned to “extort” Robert, along with Jocelyn Savage’s father.
You can listen to the conversation in full, here. As of now, nothing has been officially confirmed, but this wouldn't be the first time R. Kelly's team has assisted in a scheme of this nature.
