R. Kelly's attorney responds to allegations made in docu-series

The Lifetime series reported that their daughter has repeatedly denied that Kelly has done anything wrong and has said she doesn't want to talk to her family.

Sources connected to the alleged victims of R. Kelly tell The Blast there is a rumor circulating that the singer is preparing to leave the United States, and we are told Africa has been mentioned as one of the places he may seek solace.

Executive produced by Dream Hampton, the docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly" detailed accounts from people in Kelly's circle, including the singer's brother, Bruce, who said Kelly had a "preference" for young women and singer Sparkle (the aunt of the 14-year-old in the sex tape) who testified against him in court. Asante McGee, one of the women who detailed Kelly's alleged abuse against her on the show, confirmed to TMZ she was contacted by authorities while the attorney for the family of another alleged Kelly captive, Joycelyn Savage, also confirmed speaking with investigators.

According to police, there is a warrant against R. Kelly's former manager for terroristic threats stemming from a May 2018 phone call. "What I am hearing about the allegations against R. Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible". As a student of R. Kelly for the time I was, having been around his light and understanding the obstacles that he overcame as a child to be birthed into the musical genius he is today...

R Kelly has hit the headlines since the 'Surviving R Kelly' documentary saw new claims about an underage sexual relationship with Aaliyah as well as other abuse claims revealed.

Foxx said that after watching the series herself, "I was sickened by the allegations".

Her office covers Chicago where Kelly has a home. He's reportedly put together a packet of evidence that will be given to the Cook County State Attorney.

Griggs told FOX 5 News that in the past few days, very senior members of the D.A.'s office have contacted Griggs regarding witness information in the case.

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses", Foxx said. Prosecutors had argued a videotape showed him engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13.
