R. Kelly facing criminal investigations after Lifetime documentary exposes abuse allegations

The disgraced singer has managed to dodge allegations of sexual abuse for years, but after Lifetime aired their six-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, an investigation on his property in Georgia was launched. We have confirmed investigators reached out to Asante McGee, one of the women who allegedly escaped R. Kelly's home.

Sources connected to the alleged victims of R. Kelly tell The Blast there is a rumor circulating that the singer is preparing to leave the United States, and we are told Africa has been mentioned as one of the places he may seek solace.

She also touched on the Surviving R. Kelly documentary series saying: "I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously". It went on to say that Russell accused Savage of lying to Lifetime and said that if Savage continued to support the series, Russell and Kelly would be forced to release information that would show Savage was a liar and that would ruin him, his reputation, his business and his family. As a student of R. Kelly for the time I was, having been around his light and understanding the obstacles that he overcame as a child to be birthed into the musical genius he is today...

Foxx called a press conference to make it known that she is willing to look into opening an investigation, but needs the unknown accusers and their families to come forward.

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

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found.

Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time".

Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations". He was acquitted of engaging in sex acts with a 13-year-old in 2008. Mr. Henry James Mason, investigators said in a police report, threatened to harm and kill members of the Savage family in retaliation for attempting to contact daughter Joycelyn Savage.
