A Georgia Official Is Calling For A Criminal Investigation Into R. Kelly

A Georgia Official Is Calling For A Criminal Investigation Into R. Kellyā€¯

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said Friday that his office is not now investigating R. Kelly for allegations the singer held women against their will in a Johns Creek house, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kelly has denied the allegations through a representative.

To that end, and considering the outrage over the ensuing August 25 concert by R. Kelly at Wolf Creek Amphitheater in College Park, Fulton County Chairman John H. Eaves will hold an emergency news conference this morning and call for a full criminal investigation by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.

The original allegations, first reported by Buzzfeed, claimed Kelly was keeping young women at his homes in Chicago and Atlanta, taking their mobile phones off them, limiting how many times they're allowed to leave the house, and filming them having sex with him.

(Fulton County contains much of the city of Atlanta.) Eaves, who is also running for mayor of Atlanta, claims in a statement that local police have discovered "key information" that is enough to support an investigation. Now, today, the Board's chairman tries again to interfere with the concert and assist others in that effort by calling for an investigation based on a supposed file - the contents of which he has not even seen, and after proper authorities already stated just last week that they looked into the allegations and launched no investigation. "He did verify that he has received a file from the Johnson Creek Law Enforcement community requesting that he ...the powers he has as a district attorney, do an investigation into details surrounding R.Kelly". Live Nation declined to cancel the performance, saying simply in a statement, "The show is proceeding".

The story quoted parents and several women alleging that Kelly forms relationships with young women interested in the music industry and then mentally and physically abuses them.

Following the reports, one of the alleged captives came forward in a video, stating she was "fine" and not being held against her will.

He went on to confirm reports he is attempting to force promoters to cancel the singer's upcoming concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.
