Recall that the six-part docuseries premiered on January 3 on Lifetime, and features interviews with women like Kitti Jones and Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea Kelly, and also tells the story of how all the adults in late singer Aaliyah’s life betrayed her.

Some of the stars featured in the documentary include John Legend and Chance the Rapper, all of spoke up against the singer.

Now, Omarion of B2K has announced that he will be deleting the songs the predator wrote for them, while Tank and Ne-Yo have now joined the #MuteRKelly campaign.

I lot of artists, song writers, producers, record execs, etc are very confused as to how to respond to what they’ve seen and heard. We’ve all been inspired by this man. We’ve all been witnesses to his musical genius. We have shaped and molded talent we sign after his musical image. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into this man that it’s hard for us to let go. I no longer have that issue. I whole heartedly apologize for not coming to this realization sooner. I CANOT separate the music from the monster! My 3 black daughters won’t let me. What hurts even more are the facilitators around him. His team, his record company, the promoters, the radio stations! There has to be a line drawn. Enough has to be enough at some point. Who are we saying is worth protecting if we let this continue? I choose the lives of these young black girls! I’m sick to my stomach! Let me also say this! There are more men guilty of these crimes! Lets make sure none of them slip through the cracks every again! You are no king because kings don’t treat queens like this! #RnBMoney #TheGeneral
