We told you a few weeks ago that Lifetime is working on not one, but two R. Kelly-related projects.
One of the projects, which is a documentary series about his alleged sex crimes, is getting help from the families of R. Kelly’s alleged sex slaves.
Tim Savage — the father of alleged brainwashed sex slave Joycelyn Savage — tells TMZ … 3 families are directly involved with helping Lifetime produce the documentary. Along with the Savages, Tim tells us Michelle Gardner’s playing ball, as is Angelo Clary.
And get this … one of the scenes features Michelle in L.A. looking for her daughter, Dominique. Michelle tells us she recognized her daughter in a video we posted earlier this month interviewing Joycelyn. Dominique’s the one wearing the baseball hat and black t-shirt.
We’re told Michelle somehow found Dominique and brought her back home with her. As far as Angelo … he’s been trying to find his daughter, Azriel, for some time now. As we reported … Angelo claims Azriel met Kelly when she was 17 and shortly after meeting Angelo says she moved in with him.
In addition to the doc, Lifetime also has a movie in the works. We’ve reached out to Lifetime … so far no word back.
We’re not sure what Lifetime is trying to accomplish here. This seems…exploitative.
