Summary

In January of 1995, 17-year-old Lizzette Martinez met Grammy-winning musician and record producer R. Kelly at Aventura Mall in Florida where he was performing. At first, it seemed that her hopes of becoming a professional singer were about to come true when he offered to help boost her career. However, this mentorship quickly turned into sexual grooming, leading to years of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

After struggling to free herself of the relationship and rebuild on her own, Lizzette’s successful new life, far away from the entertainment industry, was interrupted in 2017 by allegations against R. Kelly by other women. This led her to coming forward to the authorities with her own history of abuse by the music icon.

In January 2019, Lizzette participated with other survivors in a documentary series with Lifetime called Surviving R. Kelly. It should have been a healing experience, but instead it left them feeling abandoned and fearful for their lives.

In August 2021, Kelly went on trial in New York on racketeering and sex-trafficking charges and was found guilty of all charges.

In Jane Doe #9 by Lizzette Martinez and Keelin MacGregor, listeners get a no-holds-barred look at Martinez’s relationship with Kelly, her efforts to break free and pursue her dreams, and courage to take on her abuser and seek justice.
