Yesterday, on the 9th of January, demonstrators gathered near the studio of singer R. Kelly to call for a boycott of his music after allegations of sexual abuse against young girls were raised on the highly-rated Lifetime mini-series 'Surviving R. Kelly'.

Griggs told FOX 5 News that in the past few days, very senior members of the D.A.'s office have contacted Griggs regarding witness information in the case.

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.

She said she has been in contact with two concerned families of people who have had contact with Kelly in Cook County in the last couple of years.

"If we are going to take these allegations seriously - it isn't one of those situations where it's just forensics, we need actual witnesses and victims to have the courage to tell their stories", she said. "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they've seen, heard or experienced".

Less than a week after the premiere of Surviving R. Kelly, alleged pedophile R. Kelly now faces a new criminal investigation in Georgia, where he has been accused of running a sex cult.

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

Chris Hopper, a spokesman, for the Fulton County district attorney's office, declined to comment.

Activist Darletta Scruggs and Kendra G of WGCI Radio helped organize a protest Wednesday outside Kelly's music studio in Chicago. "No one has ever seen any evidence of it". "There are no photos of [Kelly] with these women". 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 2008, a Cook County jury found Kelly not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography charges.

The years of evading trouble are catching up to R. Kelly.

Lifetime's six-part docu-series compiled decades of sexual misconduct allegations against Kelly.
