The official trailers for the "Surviving R. Kelly" docu-series are finally here!

The Lifetime series has already faced some backlash and there was even a bomb threat called into the press screening a few weeks ago to try and throw a spanner in the works, but this docuseries is not going away.

Several survivors stepped forward to speak their truths, and for some, it was all too much and one of the victims broke down in tears and is seen stepping down from her chair and walking away, overcome with emotion.

"With over 50 interviews including civil rights activist Tarana Burke, musicians John Legend and Sparkle, talk-show host and former DJ Wendy Williams, ex-wife Andrea Kelly, ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones, brothers Carey and Bruce Kelly, and many others, the true story of R. Kelly’s controversial past will be revealed beginning in 1970 through present day, shedding light on the R&B star whose history of alleged abuse of underage African American girls has, until recently, been largely ignored by mainstream media."

"Surviving R. Kelly" will air on Lifetime as of Thurs. Jan. 3.
