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

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office in Georgia has asked attorney Gerald Griggs, who represents one of the women featured in the series, Jocelyn Savage, for a list of witnesses and phone numbers related to events that were alleged to have occurred at Kelly's home in Johns Creek, Georgia, in 2017, a spokesperson for Griggs' law office told TIME.

Nielsen Music says streaming numbers for R. Kelly have almost doubled after a recent documentary accused the R&B singer of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls.

Kimberly M. Foxx, the state's attorney for Cook County, Illinois, held a news conference on Tuesday, and encouraged those with allegations against Kelly to come forward. "But no one said nothing". "I can't go back, but I can go forward and continue to support women, men and people of all sexual identities, and of all races, who are victims of sexual assault", she added.

Kelly has two weeks to pay up the $80,000 he owes for the property on the west side of Chicago. The Savages say they haven't heard from Joycelyn in two years.

On Wednesday, Lady Gaga took to Twitter to announce that she plans to remove her 2013 song with Kelly, "Do What U Want (With My Body)", from iTunes in the wake of the docu-series.


Steve Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, said in an emailed statement: "Mr. Kelly did not sexually abuse anybody, at anytime, not when he was in high school and not after". Most infamously, Kelly was charged with child pornography in 2000 after the aforementioned video surfaced (Kelly was cleared in 2008 after that woman declined to testify against him). In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.

According to reports, the incident between Mason and Kelly's alleged sexual partner Joycelyn Savage's dad Timothy Savage allegedly went down last May. He's failed to pay his rent for several months now and has been given a warning to pay the thousands of dollars due - or get out.

Meanwhile, Timothy was asked recently about the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" and talked about a report that states investigators are looking to bring charges against the singer.

Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

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