R Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive treatment of women and underage girls, including those that there uncovered in the recent documentary Surviving R Kelly.

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing. This move comes after the media storm that followed the airing of Surviving R. Kelly.

He could not say whether Kelly, 52, ever met the women interviewed in the Lifetime show, "met them one night when he was drinking and partying" or even whether he might have lived with them.

"The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone".

The latest accusations echo similar ones against the singer dating back 25 years. But an IL prosecutor's plea for potential victims and witnesses to come forward has sparked hope among some advocates that the R&B star might face new charges.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Fox earlier this week called on victims to share their stories with police and prosecutors. In 2008, the singer was tried and acquitted on child pornography charges in Chicago.

Lifetime is part of A&E Networks, which is a joint venture between Hearst Communications and Walt Disney Co. His music streamed 870,316 times on January 2, the day before the series premiere, but Nielsen said Thursday Kelly's music garnered almost 1.73 million streams after the sixth episode aired January 6.

After the documentary aired, singer Lady Gaga vowed to remove a duet she recorded with Kelly from streaming services and never collaborate with him again.
