Lifetime’s docu-series about R. Kelly’s survivors of sexual abuse aired over the weekend and it feels as though everybody was watching. One woman was surprised to see journalist Touré make an appearance because, in the past, he has allegedly made very inappropriate comments to her in the workplace.

Music writer Touré contributed to the R. Kelly documentary but one make-up artist thinks that he shouldn’t have been involved in the creation of the show. As reported by Pitchfork, she is accusing him of asking her lewd questions on the set of his show. In an Instagram comment, she wrote the following:
“Every Monday I used to work with him on a show in 2017 and he couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to fuck me, what his cum would look like on my face…. I had to have the crew stay in the room [with] me while I got him ready…. And when I left I called HR…. He got fired instantly. He wrote me a huge apology for doing that in my DMs. Still have it. He did a ’20/20′ shoot in 2018, and I was there, and he walked out. Told the producer that he was ’embarrassed [because] he was inappropriate with a staff member.’ He really needs to take a seat.”
50 Cent was surprised when he heard about the news, acting bewildered and stating that Touré was just “the star” of Surviving R. Kelly.
