R. Kelly facing criminal investigations after Lifetime documentary exposes abuse allegations

R. Kelly facing criminal investigations after Lifetime documentary exposes abuse allegations

Future went on to say that he feels people are paying too much attention to the singer and the recently released docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly", which explores the allegations of sexual misconduct with young girls that have been made against him over the decades.

Joycelyn Savage has denied that she is being held without against her will by R. Kelly. Before the series aired, Kelly and his lawyers had dismissed the accusations and threatened to sue Lifetime.

Griggs said he has also been contacted by prosecutors in Kelly's hometown of Chicago.

Kelly's attorney, Stephen Greenberg, called Foxx's urging that any victims call her office absurd.

TMZ reports that R. Kelly is still getting booked for shows, but only in Germany for the time being.

But now the father of one of R Kelly's alleged victims Jocelyn Savage has reached out to her publicly on Instagram in an emotional video.

Timothy reported Mason to the Henry County Police.

Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations".




"Please come forward. There's nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without cooperation between victims and witnesses", Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx said Tuesday at a news conference in Chicago.

At least two women have contacted the Cook County State's Attorney's Office since Wednesday afternoon to complain of alleged inappropriate conduct by R. Kelly.

The visit by police came just hours after police confirmed they conducted a "business check" at his West Loop recording studio.

In some cases, the women say they were underage. Kelly was hit with 21 counts of child pornography and was found not guilty in 2008.

Both Kelly and the girl denied they were the ones in the video, even though the quality of the video was good and multiple witnesses at trial testified it was clearly them.

Kelly turned 52 years old on January 8.

The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July a year ago.

The docu-series, which aired on Lifetime last week, features 50 interviews, including accuser Jerhonda Pace; the parents of one of Kelly's alleged victims; Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly; ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones and brothers Carey and Bruce Kelly. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued previous year.
