After blistering docuseries, R. Kelly's radio play plummets but streaming soars

DETROIT MI- FEBRUARY 21 R. Kelly performs at Little Caesars Arena

Attorney Steve Greenberg offered his most full-throated defense of the Grammy-winning recording artist since a prosecutor in Chicago this week urged potential victims to come forward after Lifetime aired the documentary "Surviving R Kelly", which revisited old allegations and brought new ones into the light.

Watts went on to say to the newspaper that he and the rest of the executives decided it would be best to cut ties with R. Kelly due to the current political and cultural landscape, especially with the rise of the #MeToo movement.

Greenberg has also said that R. Kelly did not know the late singer Aaliyah was 15 when he married her. "The man was not operating a harem, or a sex cult, or holding people hostage or anything like that".

His estranged daughter Buku Abi, meanwhile, condemned her father as "a monster" in a statement issued via Instagram.

The Cook County State's Attorney's Office did not immediately return our request for comment.

When it comes to the many celebs who have begun to distance themselves from Kelly since the release of the series, Greenberg took aim at Lady Gaga specifically.

"He gets royalties from his songwriting", said Greenberg.

Greenberg explained that he and Kelly "have not looked at all of the women" that appeared in the documentary, adding that "all that matters is that whatever any of them are saying did not happen".

Greenberg claimed the women associated with Kelly approached him in hopes of a music career and then became "disgruntled" when things didn't work out.

"The police found nothing because there's nothing wrong", he said.

The Lifetime series featured interviews with several women making on-camera allegations of sexual, mental and physical abuse by Kelly, as well as interviews with some of his former managers and producers. On Jan. 7, the day after the series ended, Kelly's songs were played on radio 198,000 times.
