R. Kelly's Former Manager Hit With Arrest Warrant

- The Chicago-based attorney for musician R. Kelly broke his silence Wednesday evening defending his client.

The families of R. Kelly's alleged accusers are concerned that the criminal investigation in Georgia into the explosive allegations put forth by the Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly will inspire the singer to flee the country.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx announced Tuesday afternoon during a press conference they are asking anyone who may be a victim or has information about a possible victim connected to the allegations against the singer in IL to come forward so they can investigate the claims.

Her father says they haven't heard from her in about two years.

According to a marriage certificate that was uncovered in the '90s, Kelly had secretly married the Detroit singer Aaliyah Haughton when she was just 15.

Savage is one of the women that lived in R. Kelly's house as part of an alleged "sex cult". Her whereabouts remain unknown and the new docu-series documents her parents' painful search for her.

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment. Before the series aired, Kelly and his lawyers had dismissed the accusations and threatened to sue Lifetime.

"There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story", Greenberg said.

"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said. Both Kelly and the girl denied that the video depicted them, and no assault charges were ever brought against Kelly as a result of the tape.

In addition, TMZ reports investigators have been trying to connect with other others who were living in Kelly's former Atlanta home, and are interested in any knowledge of what happened inside the home.

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.

Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations. "I've worked in this office for a number of years including in 2008, and so the allegations were not new to me, but I think listening to survivors and giving the platform for survivors to tell their stories was heartbreaking".
