R. Kelly's Biggest Collaborators React to His Alleged Sex Abuse

Despite these allegations and what seems to be proof, Kelly's new attorney, Steven Greenberg, just last week, insisted that his client had not known Aaliyah's real age at the time of their illegal wedding which was annulled not long after.

The project, led by producer Dream Hampton, documents the musician's troubled childhood and musical rise to becoming one of the most prolific record producers of his generation.

NY: A woman who sued R. Kelly accusing the American R&B star of sexual battery, knowingly infecting her with a sexually transmitted disease, and false imprisonment says he has threatened her.

Though he was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, Kelly's behavior and relationship with young women-he married the late singer Aaliyah when she was 15-was not unknown; but now, some say with hindsight, it had mostly been ignored for years thanks to his network of protecters.

Below, check out 15 notable performers who have partnered with Kelly, both before and after his indictments, and how they've reacted to his claims as of yet.

R. Kelly´s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, told AFP the letter allegedly sent by the singer was "a complete fabrication".

Despite the multiple accusations leveled against him, Kelly has not been found guilty of any crimes. An alleged victim of the R&B singer states after revealing her story in the docuseries she received threats.

Faith Rodgers, an alleged R. Kelly victim, held a press conference on Monday in New York City accusing Kelly of threatening her after she filed a lawsuit alleging that he knowingly infected her with an STD, abused her "mentally, sexually and verbally", and groomed her to join his alleged "sex cult."

In the letter, a person identifying himself as R. Kelly warned a lawyer for the woman, Faith Rodgers, that if she persisted with the suit, she would be "subjected to public opinion". Another attorney for Rodgers, Lydia Agu, said she received a letter past year from Kelly, 51, saying, "Please advise Ms. Rodgers, your client, to abandon this heartless effort to try to destroy my musical legacy for selfish, personal enrichment". Allred also said, "Prosecutors in Chicago and Atlanta are also seeking information from potential victims and we plan to offer them our cooperation as well".
