Kelly’ Documentary Screening Evacuated Over Gun Threat

R Kelly gun evacuation

Months back news broke regarding the premiere of a documentary chronicling the sexual misconduct of R. Kelly over the years.

The event, which took place in NY on 4 December, was postponed by the venue, NeueHouse Madison Square. In the aftermath, Kelly's ex-wife Drea Kelly believes that he had something to do with the threats.

The premiere of U.S. documentary series Surviving R Kelly was evacuated after "individuals stated they received a threatening phone call", NYPD has said.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, a representative from Lifetime said that the evacuation happened as a precaution, and that they believe that the calls came from somewhere in Chicago. The threats were "non-credible", according to a spokesperson from the venue.

A Lifetime documentary about R. Kelly's alleged sexual misconduct over the years was set to premiere in New York City this week before things took a unsafe turn. This comes after accusations that Kelly runs a sex cult that imprisons women. The venue states that the anonymous calls were made from Chicago, which is where Kelly now lives.

The program is only available to unlocked Note 9 users - specifically, the SM-960U1 variant of the unlocked Note 9 in the US. Meaning at some point Samsung will stop the registration process, preventing new users from joining.

The event was attended by special guests like Kelly's accusers, parents of the accusers, and other people in the doc - as well as #MeToo founder, Tarana Burke. I do believe that in some shape, form or fashion it is connected to him. 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. They've received SO MUCH hate for coming forward.

An event insider added, "Everyone thinks it was an intimidation tactic from R.Kelly's team to try to silence everyone". The two have been divorced since 2006.

"At tonight's premiere of Lifetime's documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" at NeueHouse Madison Square, several anonymous threats were called in", Lifetime said in a statement.

The series premieres on Lifetime on January 3.
