Lizette Martinez, a former actress and model, recently revealed that she was paid $1000 to act in the controversial documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly.” In an interview with Miami’s NBC 6, Martinez claimed that she was approached by the production team and offered the money to portray a victim of Kelly’s abuse.
Martinez, who has previously worked on a number of films and television shows, said that she was hesitant to take the role at first, but eventually agreed to do it for the money. She claimed that the production team provided her with a script and instructed her on how to act and what to say on camera.
In the documentary, Martinez appears as “Lizzette Martinez,” a survivor of Kelly’s abuse who tells her story on camera. She describes how she met Kelly at a party when she was 17 years old, and how he later groomed her and subjected her to emotional and physical abuse.
However, Martinez has since come forward to claim that her story was completely fabricated, and that she never actually met Kelly or experienced any abuse at his hands. She said that she was only paid to act out the role, and that the production team did not verify her story or conduct any background checks before using her in the documentary.
The revelation has sparked outrage among Kelly’s supporters, who have accused the production team of using paid actors to portray victims and create a false narrative about Kelly. It has also raised questions about the validity of the other stories featured in the documentary, and whether they are also based on fabricated accounts.
Despite the controversy, the documentary has been widely praised for shining a light on Kelly’s history of abuse and sexual misconduct. It has also sparked a renewed interest in the case against Kelly, who is currently facing multiple charges of sexual abuse and assault.
