physically abuse women and young girls.
“R. Kelly has brought so much pain to so
many people” Legend, 40, said during an
interview for the documentary. Legend has
openly supported women’s right’s organization

Throughout the documentary Legend shares
reflections on Kelly throughout the years.
Recalling the singer’s biggest hit off of the

Believe I Can Fly’ is a powerful song and it
inspired a lot of people. It was just massive.”
