Lifetime is gearing up to air its first episode of Surviving R. Kelly. The docu-series which premieres this Thursday (January 3) features one of the late Aaliyah’s former backup singer, Jovante Cunningham who opens up about her experience touring with R. Kelly.

In the released clip Jovante Cunningham describes a situation on the road in which R. Kelly was caught allegedly having sex with a then-15-year-old Aaliyah.

“We were out on the road with Aaliyah,” Jovante Cunningham states. “On a tour bus, there really aren’t many confined spaces. When you get on the bus there are bunks and so these bunks have little curtains you can pull at night if you don’t want anybody to see you sleeping.

“So it just so happened we were all laying in our bunks and the curtains are open, everybody’s communicating, laughing. When the [room] door flew open on the bus. Robert was having sex with Aaliyah.”

It is important to state that the claims against R. Kelly are allegation until he is proven guilty.

Check out the trailer. The full episode airs Thursday

In other R. Kelly news, the crooner released a new track yesterday called, “Born To My Music.” The star also took to social media to announce that he’s working on a new album which is coming soon.
