Greenberg would not answer questions about the new allegations the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" raise.

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. The series accuses the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult.

"We hope that it will turn into a fruitful investigation and it will result in the return of Joycelyn Savage to her family or, at the very least, that she start opening continuous conversations and interactions with her family like she had before she met Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly", Griggs told PEOPLE on Wednesday. Kelly, who turned 52 on Tuesday, has denied wrongdoing.

A Cook County State's Attorney representative said officials are "in the process of reviewing and following up on these calls".

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

"There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses".

Foxx's announcement the news that the Fulton County District Attorney's Office has opened an investigation into accusations made against Kelly in the docuseries. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation".

She added that her office is talking to two families whose loved ones had been in contact with Kelly.

TMZ reports that one alleged victim of R. Kelly and families of two other apparent victims spoke this week about going to Chicago prosecutors to present evidence to potentially prosecute him for sexual abuse and other crimes.

A Georgia man involved with a recent documentary detailing abuse allegations against R Kelly told police the singer's manager threatened him.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions.

The singer has long since dodged conviction, getting acquited of charges of child pornography back in 2008.

Savage told the officer that Mason had called him around 3:10 p.m. on May 23 and said, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna (expletive) kill you".
