When it comes to making cheesy movies about famous people, Lifetime is the BEST. And now Lifetime is taking aim at R. Kelly! In fact, they’re doing two projects on R. Kelly. One is a documentary series and another is a feature-length movie and they are BOTH part of Lifetime’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign. R. Kelly is accused of brainwashing young women — some of the VERY young — to basically be his sex slaves. He says it’s not true, of course. But the docuseries reportedly will feature people from R. Kelly’s inner circle as well as women who claim they were once under his spell but managed to escape.
