His lawyer Steve Greenberg told ABC's Good Morning America that Kelly continues to deny all allegations and legal action is being considered.

"Well hopefully he'll sue Lifetime," he said, "For defamation because people shouldn't be able to do this to someone."

Greenberg said Kelly hasn't watched the series, and was blunt about his feelings on the project.

“He didn’t watch the series,” Greenberg said. “The series is trash TV. There’s no reason to watch the series.”

More than a dozen woman allege that they were abused and held against their will with some parents saying the same about their daughters.

“Why the women do it I can’t tell you,” Greenberg said. “But none of them complained when the relationship was over. None of them complained until someone came out and found them.”

The latest accusations come a decade after Kelly was acquitted on child porn charges for an alleged sex tape with an underage girl.

Prosecutors in Chicago and Atlanta have asked potential victims to come forward.
