He noted that, when watching one woman attempt to discuss her experiences with R. Kelly, he recalled how Aaliyah used to act.

But an IL prosecutor's plea for potential victims and witnesses to come forward and new protests have sparked hope among some advocates that the R&B star might face criminal charges.

Speaking of Joycelyn Savage, reportedly R. Kelly's current manager, Don Russell, has been harassing her family as well. The former Mrs. Kelly does say that he was extremely controlling from the very beginning and that she had to ask permission to eat, sleep or even leave the bedroom. In the last week, Chance the Rapper and Lady Gaga became the latest artists to apologize for collaborating with Kelly, with Gaga pledging to remove the duet "Do What U Want (With My Body)" from streaming services. He averaged more than 1.5 million streams from January 3-6.

Ex-girlfriends Lisa Van Allen, Sparkle, and Dominique Gardner voice their allegations against the singer as well.


Gerald Griggs, lawyer of survivor Joycelyn Savage, told media he was contacted by the Fulton County District Attorney asking for a list of witnesses who could speak to events that occurred at Kelly's house in an Atlanta, Georgia suburb in 2017.

Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims.

Kelly, who has been dogged by allegations of sexual impropriety for two decades, has not been charged with any crimes since he was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008. Women including the singer's ex-wife Andrea Kelly have claimed to have suffered from abuse at the hands of the singer. "Her rep told People, "[Robert] has chosen to not be around their three children.

Also in Chicago, according to WMAQ, police confirmed on Wednesday that they conducted a "business check" at Kelly's recording studio on the city's West Side but "have no criminal complaints from anyone about the location".


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly's attorney in Chicago, Steve Greenberg, has denied the allegations against his client, claiming that they're just "another round of stories" being used to "fill reality TV time".

"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".

Both new accusers said the alleged sexual abuse took place in Chicago. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.

Guglielmi also urged anyone with information about allegations in the documentary that Chicago police officers helped Kelly to come forward.
