R. Kelly apprently wasn’t interested in watching Lifetime excoriate him. TMZ reports that the R&B singer didn’t watch the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries and is “disgusted” by it.

According to the site, Kelly considers the series to be part of a vendetta against him by the producers, who have been out to get him for years. He claims that he doesn’t even know half of the women who appeared after being detailed on the series by his people, and that the other half have grudges against him for personal and professional reasons.

Sources close to Kelly say he claims that there were several people who wanted to defend him on camera, but were denied by producers. Kelly allegedly plans to “sue everybody who had anything to do with this,” said one source.

Among the claims made by the docuseries, which aired over the weekend, were allegations that the singer had sex with underage girls and inflicted physical, sexual and mental abuse on them, reinforcing claims from last year that he is running a sex cult. Kelly threatened to sue Lifetime over the show, to no avail.
