The first part of the documentary aired last night with commentary from Legend, condemning R. Kelly for the heinous acts he committed against young girls.

"I drank alcohol and just kinda passed out", she says.

"I asked Jay-Z, I asked Mary J. Blige, I asked Lil Kim, Erykah Badu, Dave Chappelle..."

According to CBS, Rodgers says she was in a relationship with Kelly when she was 19, for almost a year before she left him.

For more powerful stories from alleged victims of R. Kelly, pick up this week's issue of PEOPLE on newsstands now.

Former backing singer Jovante Cunningham spoke out against R. Kelly in the documentary, claiming that she and several others witnessed him having sex with his 15-year-old protege Aaliyah on a tour bus in the 1990s.

Allison had mild asthma, but about half the children who die from the flu were healthy before flu hit, according to the CDC. "The season is really starting to pick up", said Lynnette Brammer, the lead of CDC's domestic influenza surveillance team.

"Celebrated as one of the greatest R&B singers of all time, R. Kelly's genre defining career and playboy lifestyle has been riddled with rumors of abuse, predatory behavior, and pedophilia", Lifetime says of the singer. I believe these women'. Through tears, she said, "I feel protective of Aaliyah right now, which is why I can't get my mouth to say ... he destroyed a lot of people". She believes the 51-year-old singer "pursues teenage/underage" girls and "lures" them into having sex with him and other women, specifically the ones he "raises". Bruce gave his interview from the Cook County Jail in Chicago, where he's now serving time - and that has viewers questioning why R. Kelly's brother is locked up. "I was asked to talk about his genius", the drummer and producer wrote in a since-deleted tweet. hampton later denied requesting that Questlove discuss Kelly's "genius". "I didn't wanna be in the "good times" portion of the doc, like stanning for his "genius".

'I don't think he understands girls that are young how impressionable we are and how traumatic these experiences are'. And I told him...

Kelly's lawyer Brian Nix threatened Lifetime with a lawsuit if the network aired the docuseries, which Nix said was "packed with lies", according to TMZ.

He further elaborated, adding, "Just wanna make that abundantly clear in a non "he doth protest too much" way". According to the letter published by TMZ, Nix claims that numerous allegations made in the documentary are false, and further alleges that Lifetime knowingly included false accounts.

"Lifetime has always been a brand that champions women's stories", the network said in a statement. Check out the conclusion of the documentary tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
