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

Investigators and lawyers in at least two states are seeking more information about allegations against R. Kelly, after a new documentary series reignited interest in reports of the R&B singer's alleged sexual misconduct and other illicit behavior.

As it stands, Kelly has yet to speak to the allegations since the documentary has aired. Kelly, who turned 52 on Tuesday, has denied wrongdoing. The Savages say they haven't heard from Joycelyn in two years.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions.

"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety".

Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office, had no comment on whether or not an investigation into Kelly is indeed underway.

Police were called to a blowout birthday bash for rapper R. Kelly in Chicago early Thursday morning. I was sickened as a survivor. "We are in the process of reviewing and following up on these calls and have no additional information to provide at this time".

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".

The visit by police came just hours after police confirmed they conducted a "business check" at his West Loop recording studio.

The alleged incident went down in May 2018, and Timothy Savage made a report to police in Henry County.

The report states Russell called Savage while the officer was there, and Savage put the phone on speaker.

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found.

R. Kelly former manager, James Mason, is facing some potential legal trouble after he reportedly threatened one of the singer's victims father.

Winning a conviction under current sex-trafficking laws will be a challenge because Kelly's defense will argue that the women entered into his home willingly and Kelly did not benefit financially from their exploitation, Mehlman-Orozco said.

In the docuseries, Lisa spoke about meeting R. Kelly in Georgia when she was 17 and carrying on a relationship with him for years afterward.

When the warrant was issued in July, the judge cited "terroristic threats and acts".
