Earlier Friday, Johns Creek Police Lt. Chris Byers told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that "there is no new evidence in the closed investigation".

In his statement, Kelly called it "unlawful" for the government to interfere with citizens legally conducting business, and said public servants "should not target individual citizens for their own politically motivated purposes".

R. Kelly may never be prosecuted for the illegal sex cult allegations piled on him by the family of Jocelyn Savage. "Once the evaluation is complete, we will take the appropriate action".

Johns Creek Police in the Atlanta area have turned over an investigation of the singer to the Fulton County District Attorney's office, which will investigate the claims as a criminal matter, Eaves said.


Eaves, said that indeed, Howard verified that "now there is a potential investigation that will occur".

During the press conference, Eaves added that the state of Georgia 'will not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free'.

The BuzzFeed report names three former members of Kelly's inner circle, who both said they had sexual relationships and lived with Kelly during the past five years.

Per Buzzfeed, Eaves called on the DA to "leave no stone unturned" in its investigation.


If you recall, original reports surfaced from parents that Kellz was allegedly holding several young women against their will after promising a slew of them he would be advancing their musical careers.

Kelly vehemently denies the allegations. According to parents of the young women purportedly involved, Kelly is holding the alleged victims against their will in his homes in Chicago and Atlanta.

"The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false and ill-motived".

A Fulton County official is calling for a criminal investigation into R. Kelly, the R&B singer accused of running a "cult" of young women.


Savage, 21, has since made two videos - released to TMZ - saying she's fine and in a "happy place".
