In other news, the shamed rapper’s ex-wife Drea Kelly is planning to sue Lifetime. Speaking to entertainment news outlet TMZ Kelly says she had no business being in Part II of the R. Kelly docuseries.
Drea claims that the newly released official trailer for “Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning” is making it look like she was involved. Something she believes is misleading to audiences.
As per TMZ, “she has no involvement, did not approve any footage or stills of her likeness and is not actively promoting, nor consulting the follow-up series.”
