Lifetime announced the “Surviving R-Kelly Part II: The Reckoning” with a promo showing Kelly’s ex-wife in it. However, Drea has made it pretty clear she is not a part of that documentary.
Drea says her main beef with Lifetime is the lack of support for the women after the documentary was released.
She says she’s gonna sue Lifetime for including her in the ‘Surviving Part II’ trailer when she vehemently said she would not take part according to TMZ.
She further says the new official trailer for “Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning” is misleading to audiences because it makes it looks like she was involved.
The trailer shows a clip of Drea from the original ‘Surviving’ docuseries that aired in early 2019 in which she had a substantial role.
She further explains she has been adamant about refusing to be part of the follow-up but despite her requests to not be linked to it but Lifetime did it anyway.
Also, she got a lot of negative backlash from the public after the series aired, but on top of that, she has many grievances with the network and production company because her requests to not contact her kids and family members about ‘Part II’ were ignored, and there has been a general lack of support, security, and aftercare for survivors who participated.
Still, on Lifetime, another Kelly accuser, Lisa Van Allen, was featured in the promo, however, she also told TMZ she has nothing to do with ‘Surviving Part II’ because she’s not pleased with how Lifetime has been handling the subject matter.
