Since the Surviving R. Kelly series premiered on Lifetime earlier this month, documenting the multitude of sexual abuse allegations against R. Kelly, many of those who knew or worked with the musician have spoken out in support of his accusers and against his alleged actions. Among them were John Legend, who never worked with R. Kelly but was one of only a few artists who agreed to appear in the docuseries; Keke Palmer, a former "student" of R. Kelly, who wrote on Instagram earlier this week that she was standing by her "sisters"; and R. Kelly's own daughter, Buku Abi, who wrote on her Instagram Story on Thursday that "the same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house."

R. Kelly has denied all accusations, but is currently under investigation in Georgia, and a prosecutor in Illinois is reportedly gathering evidence to explore the possibility of opening a formal investigation.

Though many of them declined to appear in Surviving R. Kelly, in recent days, several of R. Kelly's past collaborators have come forward to apologize for working with him, including Lady Gaga, Chance the Rapper, and several more. Here, in reverse chronological order, are those apologies.
