The premiere of a documentary series about the survivors of alleged abuse by the singer R Kelly was cancelled and evacuated after a gun threat. “Anonymous threats” were made to the NeueHouse Madison Square venue in New York City, a representative for the US television network Lifetime told Rolling Stone.
The venue had received two calls from an unidentified male caller, who said that someone in the theatre had a gun and would shoot if the documentary was shown, the magazine was told. A spokesperson for the venue said the threats were “non-credible”. Lifetime said the building was evacuated “as a precaution”. Kelly has not commented on the incident.
Surviving R Kelly is a six-part Lifetime series that focuses on some of the women who have accused the R&B singer of sexual misconduct. Among them is Kitti Jones, who last year accused Kelly of physical abuse, sexual coercion, emotional manipulation and controlling her life, and was due to appear at the New York event.
