Police Called To South Side Nightclub As R. Kelly Celebrates Birthday

R. Kelly performs at the BET Awards in Los Angeles

The shows in Hamburg and Oberhausen were on recently confirmed in the past few days, right after Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly aired. Some were tied to Kelly's Chicago area home.

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses", Foxx said. Through interviews with family members and former members of the Kelly's inner circle, the report alleged that the singer kept at least six women in a "cult" across his properties in Chicago and Atlanta.

"I was sickened", she said.

Timothy Savage told a police officer on 3 January that Don Russell, whom he identified as Kelly's manager, had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air, according to a Henry County police report. However, police said no one was arrested, and there is not an ongoing criminal investigation of Kelly.

R. Kelly is off the hook for allegedly giving one of his sexual assault accusers claimed that he gave her a sexually transmitted disease.

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

Also Wednesday, two women contacted the Cook County State's Attorney's office with previously unreported accusations against Kelly.

Griggs said the Fulton County district attorney's office reached out to him on Monday seeking contact information for witnesses.

"I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously", she wrote in part. Kelly was hit with 21 counts of child pornography and was found not guilty in 2008. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued previous year.

When the warrant was issued in July, the judge cited "terroristic threats and acts".

She responded to this claim in a video released in 2017, in which she denied she's being held and that she had been brainwashed by the Grammy-award winning singer.

But if a number of alleged victims come forward amid the furor from the "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary series, it may also be helpful for Kelly should he face any new charges, said Chicago defense lawyer Joseph Lopez.
