Chicago police were called to a club on the South Side Wednesday where singer R.Kelly was reportedly celebrating his birthday.
Jocelyn Savage's dad begs for her to reach out after R Kelly documentary. Despite years of petitions and calls for Kelly's longtime label home, RCA Records, to part ways with the singer, he remained on the company's roster at press time.
Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx made a public plea Tuesday evening for accusers to come forward so that the office could investigate.
According to TMZ, the Dallas police department is said to have closed an investigation into allegations that the R&B singer infected an anonymous woman with an STD while holding her captive as a sex slave for several months in 2017.
Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims.
"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police.
Steve Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, said in an emailed statement: "Mr. Kelly did not sexually abuse anybody, at anytime, not when he was in high school and not after". Savage claims his daughter is being held against her will by R. Kelly and Mason threatened him for speaking out about it. "People know if they are a victim of a crime to contact the police".More news: Wisconsin Department of Health Services says flu activity is rising
Two women contacted the Sun-Times Wednesday and gave accounts of what they allegedly experienced at the hands of Kelly. Foxx, a sexual assault survivor herself, said that she was left "sickened" after watching the series. However, the state's attorney's office has said it has received calls about R. Kelly since Foxx's request, and is following up on those calls.
"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said. Multiple other reports have surfaced over the years.
In 2008, a Cook County jury found Kelly not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography charges.
"Man, who is that", the 35-year-old said.
