In the latest edition of our series “Family Feud with FOX’s Melissa Francis,” host Melissa Pope is joined by R. Kelly’s father, Reverend Robert, for an in-depth look at the scandal involving the singer.
Two of Kelly’s accusers are suing him for $20 million. Melissa sits down with one of the survivors to talk about her experience and how she hopes people will react to the interview.
Next, Melissa interviews Kelly’s cousin Elaine on how Kelly’s father has handled the negative media coverage surrounding his son and how he responds to bad press about his family.
Melissa heads to southern Illinois where she interviews Billie Timmons, mother of Aaliyah’s ex-boyfriend Alex Timmons, who believes Aaliyah’s parents didn’t do anything wrong when they discovered their daughter was having an affair with another man.
The Southern Illinois FOX affiliate is suing NewsOne Publishing Company and its owner Lachlan Murdoch. Citing defamation, sexual harassment and slander, Melissa speaks with the station’s attorney Scott Dworkin, and attorney Andrew Rush, about their claims.
Finally, Melissa heads to Los Angeles to report on the new Fox show “19-2,” and talk with the “new” host, Antoine Jones, about his new life as a police officer.
