(CNN) – A docuseries containing abuse and sexual misconduct against musician R Kelly debuted Thursday night.
“Surviving R. Kelly” is a six-part documentary series airing on the Lifetime channel.
It examines accusations of child sexual abuse and predatory behavior that have been leveled against the singer and contains interviews with accusers, witnesses, and people who were close to Kelly.
The history of accusations against Kelly date back to 1994, when he reportedly married his 15-year-old protégée Aaliyah.
In 2002, he was charged with 21 counts of child pornography, but was eventually acquitted.
Kelly denies any wrongdoing.
His lawyer says the documentary contains false claims and the people involved are defaming Kelly for personal gain.
