Allegations against R. Kelly have been around for ten years, and he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008. Multiple other reports have surfaced over the years. The special included interviews of women claiming to have experienced Kelly's abuse firsthand, as well as former members of Kelly's inner circle attesting to Kelly's predatory behavior toward underage girls.

Kelly maintains his innocence against all allegations against him.

Multiple women have sued him for coercing them into having sex when they were under age.

Sampson, who first went public with her allegations in a Washington Post article previous year, reveals she began to feel like she was in love with Kelly, but she was confused about the situation.

However, whether or not such wording is in a contract, she said, "Any record company - or, really, any party to any contract - can decide they no longer want to be in the contract", Frank continued. Kelly, however will not seek legal action against the label.
