Police Investigating Reported Party At R. Kelly’s Chicago Studio

Here’s How R. Kelly Reportedly Reacted To The ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Documentary After It Aired — Video Lady Gaga apologises for working with R Kelly and vows to remove song from streaming services

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.

A lawyer representing a couple who appeared in a recent documentary detailing abuse allegations against R. Kelly said prosecutors in Georgia have reached out to him. The series accuses the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult.

The Savage family said they have been unable to reach Joycelyn Savage for some time after associating with the singer.

Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations.

On Tuesday Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx urged anyone who suffered at the hands of embattled singer R. Kelly to tell their story.

Foxx's announcement the news that the Fulton County District Attorney's Office has opened an investigation into accusations made against Kelly in the docuseries.

But Foxx also said there's no active investigation of Kelly and launching one would require victims and witnesses. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation". He also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation. A BuzzFeed report published in 2017 from Chicago music critic Jim DeRogatis, who has investigated Kelly for more than a decade, renewed public interest in allegations against the musician.

In May, R. Kelly's former manager, James Mason, was arrested after being accused of threatening to kill a man who says Kelly is holding his daughter against her will, CNN reported.

Foxx said she has been "in contact with" people who have information related to claims in Cook County.

In 2008, a Cook County jury found Kelly not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography charges.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions.

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".
