R. Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

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.

According to TMZ, the disgraced R&B star has dismissed the artists distancing themselves from him as "phonies" who are trying to keep their own images clean as the public swallows all those unsettling Surviving R. Kelly allegations.

He was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly, said in an interview on Friday that there was no evidence to support the accusations contained in the documentary, calling it a "for-profit hit piece full of falsities, full of mistakes".

His 2017 Buzzfeed story, detailing how parents claimed their daughter was being held against her will by the singer, sparked a new wave of attention and more women coming forward about Kelly's alleged "cult" and his "brainwashing" of young women.

High-profile women´s rights attorney Gloria Allred told reporters on Monday that her client Faith Rodgers, 20, faced "efforts to intimidate and retaliate" from Kelly after she filed the lawsuit now pending in New York´s Supreme Court.

"We have an appointment today with the New York City Police Department who has asked to meet with Faith in furtherance of their investigation into potential victims of R. Kelly", said Allred.

Her mother, Kelly Rodgers, said she and her husband had also received threats and intimidation attempts. "And that had to be done in person, and that is why she's in NY". Allred also announced plans to cooperate with Atlanta and Chicago prosecutors looking to speak with the 52-year-old singer's alleged victims.
