Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, is the talk of the town. You would think his alleged scandalous behavior exhibited in the series would have a negative impact on his music sales. Quite the contrary, Spotify confirmed that amid the shocking allegations and scandal, R. Kelly’s streaming numbers have actually increased by 16% since the documentary aired. His streams have also reportedly increased on the Apple Music, Tidal, and Amazon platforms. The crooner and self-proclaimed “Pied Piper” is also still booking shows and releasing new music the last of which dropped the day the documentary premiered.

Before the documentary premiered R. Kelly’s lawyer Brian Nix was reportedly threatening lawsuits. Since the conclusion of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, the crooner reportedly claims he didn’t know most of the people who participated in the series and those he did know had a “vendetta” against him. He also reportedly claims there were people who defend him, but the network’s producers wouldn’t allow them on the series. Although those claims seem highly improbable, R. Kelly and his lawyer are now threatening to sue Lifetime and everyone who had anything to do with the Surviving R. Kelly documentary. Stay tuned for updates.
