R. Kelly Under Investigation in Georgia Following New Documentary's Abuse Allegations

R. Kelly Kelly Chicago Victims Have Evidence To Bring Him Down Angie Dare

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

According to several reports, an arrest warrant was issued for James Mason, R. Kelly's former manager, after he allegedly threatened the father of one of Kelly's alleged victims, Joycelyn Savage.

The parents of alleged R. Kelly victim Joycelyn Savage called Georgia police to claim that they were receiving threats from the singer's manager, Don Russell, for appearing in the controversial LIfetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly. Chief investigator Cynthia Nwokocha also contacted Joycelyn Savage's family; the family has been fully cooperative. Investigators have made contact with the family of Asante McGee and the attorney for the family of Jocelyn Savage, two of the women who were profiled in the film.

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

"There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story", Greenberg said. "There are no photos of [Kelly] with these women".

Investigators' quieries come as the Lifetime series adds a new dimension to the sexual abuse allegations Kelly has faced for the better part of his almost 30-year career.

The six-part series includes interviews with R. Kelly associates, relatives, and accusers - many of whom claim they were teenagers at the time they were abused, according to The New York Times.

Horrified and disturbed by the findings, Foxx wants to aid victims who seek justice against Kelly and his team of enablers who kept Kelly unscathed by the fire which has yet to engulf him.

Kelly is accused of taking advantage of women, having a cult, holding women hostage and other forms of sexual and physical abuse. "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".
