'Surviving R. Kelly' Premiere Evacuated Due to Gun Threat

Surviving R. Kelly’ Premiere Ended Due to Threat of Shooter Shawn Grant

The six-part documentary highlights the varied allegations of mental, physical, and sexual abuse and sexual misconduct of the disgraced singer, and apparently features over 50 interviews with prominent figures like R. Kelly's brothers, ex-wife Andrea Kelly, and John Legend. A Lifetime rep tells Variety the event was evacuated as a precaution after the venue received two anonymous calls.

A screening for Lifetime's documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" was evacuated over a gun threat. "As a precaution, we evacuated", a representative from Lifetime said in a released statement, "Tonight's all about the safety for everyone - we're not even sure what to do next".

The NYPD is looking into the threat, a spokesperson said.

Balogun Hails Brighton’s ‘Outstanding Team Performance’ In EPL Win Over Palace
Glenn Murray broke the deadlock for the hosts from the penalty spot after James McArthur brought down Jose Izquierdo . In his 300th Palace appearance, Zaha was up against the side he has scored more goals versus than any other.

While Kitti Jones, who past year accused Kelly of physical abuse and sexual coercion, told Rolling Stone: "This just speaks to how much power there is in numbers, that someone felt the need to threaten the event". This comes after accusations that Kelly runs a sex cult that imprisons women. She believes that the threat could be connected to R. Kelly. Drea and #MeToo founder Tarana Burke were in attendance for the Surviving R. Kelly documentary at the time of the threats. This was an outside inside-job to me; someone on the outside does not want what's going on on the inside to be completed. "These women who come forward to tell their stories are innocent victims". While she can't say for certain if R. Kelly acted alone or not, she says, "I do believe that in some shape, form or fashion it is connected to him". I can't believe these intimidation tactics. The two have been divorced since 2006. Tonight was a private screening of the @lifetimetv documentary #survivingRkelly where his survivors, parents of survivors, and folks featured in the doc were gathered and a BOMB THREAT was called in and the event shut down.

The series premieres on Lifetime on January 3.
