The three-night, six-part series “Surviving R. Kelly” aired Thursday through Saturday on Lifetime, immediately prompting controversy and a backlash against the entertainer, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly.
Savage was one of several alleged victims whose story was part of the series.
Kelly’s other accusers from the docuseries include an anonymous former employee, Michelle Kramer, Alice and Angelo Clary and his ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones.

The Savages, the Clarys and Kramer each said their daughters had been “brainwashed” while living with Kelly. They said they hadn’t been in contact with their children for years.
