R. Kelly under Investigation following Lifetime's Documentary

R. Kelly under Investigation following Lifetime's Documentary

The Savages, who live in Stockbridge, just south of Atlanta, appeared in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series.

R. Kelly is now under criminal investigation. The series accuses the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult. Angelo Clary believes that his daughter moved in with Kelly when she was 18 and the family hasn't heard from her since 2016.

Horrified and disturbed by the findings, Foxx wants to aid victims who seek justice against Kelly and his team of enablers who kept Kelly unscathed by the fire which has yet to engulf him.

Greenberg says the state's attorney shouldn't be soliciting cases, adding there are no current complaints and no evidence because it didn't happen.

"I was sickened. I was sickened by the allegations, I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I'm sickened as a prosecutor", she said of the docuseries.

Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office, had no comment on whether or not an investigation into Kelly is indeed underway. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation".

Foxx says her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims. She felt compelled to make a public statement to aid victims after her office was inundated with calls to take action.

The Cook County, Illinois, State's Attorney Kim Foxx is seeking to talk to any victims of sexual assault or domestic violence similar to the accounts several women revealed in "Surviving R. Kelly".

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found.

Timothy previously filed a police report against fellow Kelly manager James Mason, who also allegedly threatened him. The report doesn't say what the relationship between Mason and Kelly is.

The Associated Press reported that in 2008, a Cook County jury acquitted Kelly on 14 counts of child pornography after he was accused of engaging in sex acts with a girl as young as 13.

In an incident report obtained by CNN, Timothy Savage stated that Mason said, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f***ing kill you".

Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for "I Believe I Can Fly", and is known for such raunchy hits as "Bump N' Grind" and "Ignition".
