"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", Foxx said.

"My understanding is that she did not claim to be 15", he said.

In the beginning, the man claimed he does not watch "that sort of trash" therefore he hadn't watched "one minute" of Surviving R. Kelly.

Attorney Steve Greenberg offered his most full-throated defense of the Grammy-winning recording artist since a prosecutor in Chicago this week urged potential victims to come forward after Lifetime aired the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which revisited old allegations and brought new ones into the light.


R. Kelly is stepping out following allegations of sexual abuse by multiple women. A BuzzFeed report published in 2017 from Chicago music critic Jim DeRogatis, who has investigated Kelly for more than a decade, renewed public interest in allegations against the musician. "Until I saw the series and saw the survivors and realized he needs to be stopped".

Foxx said that the relatives of two missing women have contacted her office with concerns about possible contact with Kelly.

For about an hour, the protesters endured freezing temperatures and erupted in cheers of "All the girls, we love you!" and "Black girls matter!" as speakers demanded Kelly be dropped from his record label and collaborators stop working with him.

The state's attorney's call to action followed reports that Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia.


Lifetime representatives did not respond to requests for comment on Greenberg's remarks.

Griggs represents Jonjelyn and Tim Savage, who also allege that Kelly has brainwashed their daughter.

He was previously been subjected to sexual impropriety allegations and, in 2008, stood trial on child pornography charges, of which he was acquitted.

As reported by The Blast, the district attorney's office in Fulton County, Ga., reportedly began conducting interviews after the airing of the doc last week, according to the lawyer for a couple who say the singer is holding their daughter against her will. "We can not seek justice without you".
