Kelly faces new criminal investigation following dream hampton's Lifetime doc

Kelly faces new criminal investigation following dream hampton's Lifetime doc”

Chris Hopper, a spokesman, for the Fulton County district attorney's office, declined to comment. "In order to have an investigation. we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forth with whatever information that they have", said Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

"I was sickened", she said.

"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime docuseries are deeply, deeply disturbing", Foxx said during a news conference on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, in Chicago. "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they have seen, heard or experienced". The docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" has sparked a criminal investigation in Georgia. Timothy and Jonjelyn claim the singer is holding their daughter, Joycelyn Savage, against her will.

Joycelyn Savage has denied being held against her will. "I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I'm sickened as a prosecutor", she told a field of reporters. "No one has found any sex slaves or underage girls because there aren't any". 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. "There are no photos of [Kelly] with these women".

According to police, there is a warrant against R. Kelly's former manager for terroristic threats stemming from a May 2018 phone call.

Grammy winning singer and songwriter R. Kelly is under legal scrutiny in two states, Georgia and IL, for sexual and physical abuse by multiple women.

Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008. The report doesn't say what the relationship between Mason and Kelly is.

Griggs said he has also been contacted by prosecutors in Kelly's hometown of Chicago. The special included dozens of interviews with people formerly associated with Kelly, in addition to a number of women detailing their own claims of Kelly's alleged abuse. Parents of the women involved said at the time that they had attempted to get their daughters out of Kelly's homes, accusing him of controlling their eating habits, how they engaged in sexual activity and ruling over when they take baths or sleep.

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.
