John Legend is one of the only musicians who agreed to be interviewed.

Artist R. Kelly, the self-proclaimed King of R&B, is facing some major allegations in a new Lifetime documentary and in a disturbing People magazine interview - specifically about his relationship with the late singer Aaliyah.

Speaking to the Detroit Free Press, Hampton said: "When it comes to celebrities, It was incredibly hard to get people who had collaborated (artistically) with Kelly to come forward".

"Speaking on "Surviving R. Kelly", Legend says: "'I Believe I Can Fly' is a powerful song and it inspired a lot of people, it was just massive".

In recent years, a series of women have come forward to accuse him of everything from sexual coercion to physical abuse. Kelly and Aaliyah were famously Wednesday in 1994 when Aaliyah was just 15 years old and Kelly 27.

"Also on the series premiere, Kelly's former tour manager and assistant, Demetrius Smith, not only revealed that he was the first person Kelly came to anxious that he got Aaliyah pregnant, but he was in the room when the two secretly got married and was the one who forged the paperwork stating that Aaliyah was 18-years-old, when, in reality, she was only 15 at the time".

In part 1 of the episode, former backup singer Jovante Cunningham claimed that R. Kelly had sex with an underage girl while others watched.

Last year, Legend made headlines after showing his support in an anti-Kelly movement. Both Kelly and Aaliyah denied that the marriage occurred and even denied that their relationship had ever moved beyond friendship. "We were out on the road with Aaliyah", she began. He didn't move. I said, 'Get your ass out of here.' Left it at that.

He was later accused of child pornography after a widely circulated videotape appeared to show him having sex with, and urinating on, a teenage girl.

Hampton fired back, quoting Questlove's tweet and adding, "I didn't ask you about his 'Genius.' I've never thought he was a genius".

Smith claims that the wedding ceremony was so rushed that the couple were dressed in their everyday clothes, and that she looked "worried and scared". Over 50 interviews were conducted for the project, which chronicles Kelly's life, career and the numerous sexual assault and abuse allegations he has faced. When you ask the average American about presidential history, they know the most about JFK - not because they've read a dozen books about JFK, but because there are 7-12 movies about him.

Aaliyah died in 2001 at the age of 22, when her plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Marsh Harbour Airport in the Bahamas, where she had been filming a music video.
