Surviving R Kelly began today (Friday, January 5) on Lifetime in the US and will air over the next three nights. Lifetime has made the documentary available to watch online in the US. The documentary recounts numerous stories of alleged sexual abuse by R Kelly against the late R&B singer Aaliyah and other women - all of which he denies. Surviving R Kelly is currently not available to watch online in the UK, though Lifetime has put a number of clips from the series on their YouTube channel.
Surviving R Kelly is available to watch on catch-up on the Lifetime website in the US.
Episodes will be available to watch online shortly after broadcast on Thursday, January 4, Friday, January 5 and Saturday, January 6 for viewers with selected cable packages.
However, there are currently no plans to bring the series to UK screens, making it difficult to watch in the UK.
Although Netflix has hosted previous Lifetime series like You, the streaming service has not revealed any plans to make Surviving R Kelly available to stream.

The most recent of these is by former girlfriend Lisa VanAllen, who talks of alleged controlling behaviour by the singer when she dated him.
