Ciara is the latest artist to take a stand against R. Kelly in the wake of shocking allegations broadcast on Lifetime’s ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ docu-series.
As widely reported, many women spoke up and out against the hitmaker – alleging claims of sexual abuse. With the vast majority accusing the self-styled Pied Piper of carrying out said wrongs while they were underage.
The furore hasn’t been confined to the public, it’s very much generated disgust amongst Kelly’s musical peers too. Several of whom have removed their collaborations with him from the online arena. And CiCi is following suit.
Updating a story on the on-going muting of Kelly’s music and collabs, TMZ wrote:
“A rep for Ciara tells us she’s taking steps with Sony to have her collab with R. Kelly, “Promise (Go and Get Your Tickets Mix),” taken down from streaming services and iTunes.”
Undeterred by the backlash, Kelly is reported to not be worried about collaborators lining up to disassociate (bizarrely chalking that to them trying to generate publicity). Instead, his focus is said to be Lifetime and those featured in the doc. All of whom he’s allegedly gearing up to sue.
