R. Kelly would allegedly force his sexual conquests to eat his feces, according to testimony in the latest installment of Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.
Surviving R. Kelly: The Final Chapter aired in two parts on Monday and Tuesday night (January 2 and 3). The episodes chronicled the subsequent trials and overall fallout that transpired against the embattled singer following the first slew of allegations from the series’ premiere in 2019.
It also unveiled even more sinister things Kelly allegedly engaged in, including a ritual of force-feeding his feces and physically abusing ex-girlfriend Azriel Clary.
“Azriel, she was on the tour bus. They were in the back room. And I heard him hitting her — spanking as he calls it,” an unnamed survivor said. “There was another incident where Robert made one of the girls, or a couple of the girls, eat his feces. That was more of a loyalty type of ritual when they had to eat the feces.”

Clary previously testified against R. Kelly in his sex trafficking trial in 2021, and has also spoken up about the singer forcing her to eat feces in the past. The first of the two episodes explored her testimony, where she detailed how Kelly had instructed her how to lie during a contentious interview with Gayle King.
Additionally, the newest episodes revealed there had allegedly been a sex tape involving the late Aaliyah, with a survivor describing how she was allegedly assaulted after discovering it.
“I see this basket full of tapes, and I’m like, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just grab one of these tapes, and let me go in the other rooms and see if there’s a VHS so I can watch a movie,’ because I was bored,” a woman by the name of Ebonié Doyle said. “That’s when I discovered that he’d been lying to me about Aaliyah.
“The tape that I put in was of him and Aaliyah together. What I saw on that tape was he and Aaliyah being intimate. They were on the tour bus, and everything that I had asked him was confirmed on the tape.”
Doyle went on to say that she ended up being shoved down a flight of stairs after he discovered her watching the tape.
“That shake sent me down flights of stairs, and I just laid there. I just froze. That was the moment where I realized [how] to pick and choose my battles,” she said. “Like, I loved him … I love [Kelly]. He’s still important to me. And so, he’s not some horrible man to me. And I don’t want people to think that.”
She concluded: “I just wish that he would get the help he needs. Like, he’s not a bad person, he just does bad things. Does that make [sense]?”
R. Kelly was found guilty on nine counts in New York, including racketeering, transporting individuals across state lines for illegal sexual activity, coercion and enticement and the transportation of a minor. He was sentenced to 30 years.
He then faced trial again in his hometown of Chicago, where he was convicted of child pornography charges by a federal jury in September.
He still faces pending criminal charges in Minnesota, which have largely remained on hold during the pendency of his federal cases.
