A former R. Kelly intern will speak out about him on Friday, according to NBC.

In a press release from Dateline NBC, they will reveal "new information about singer R. Kelly’s decades-long history of sexual misconduct allegations."

The interview is titled Entitled Accused: The R. Kelly Story and in an hour-long exclusive interview with a former intern of the shamed star who accused him of being abusive towards her.

The name of the former intern has not yet been revealed. The show comes just weeks after Lifetime aired their "Surviving R. Kelly" series. Kelly is reported to be launching a lawsuit against the network. We think he may also try and do everything in his power to discredit some of the accusers in tonight's show.

The press release also reads:

"Additionally, NBC News’ Andrea Canning sits down with several other women, who open up about their painful accounts of alleged sexual abuse, physical violence and control by Kelly. Some say they were underage at the time. The broadcast also includes Canning’s interview with parents Tim and Jonjelyn Savage, who suspect Kelly is holding their daughter against her will.

Accused: The R. Kelly Story provides an in-depth look at the history of accusations against Kelly, which span over three decades, and why the story failed to make headlines until an explosive new documentary series propelled it into the limelight. The broadcast will feature the most up-to-date news on possible investigations, as well as an interview with Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg. Kelly denies all allegations."
