Lawyer: Georgia prosecutor seeking info about R. Kelly

The star, who has been accused of a range of misconduct by multiple women and was the subject of Lifetime's newly released docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, showed up at V75 Lounge in Chicago on Wednesday night.

Jocelyn Savage's father posted the emotional plea for his daughter to contact her family on Instagram following the "Surviving R Kelly" documentary. Family members of young women who were allegedly held captive at Kelly's properties-reportedly unable to speak or see their relatives, allegedly forced to engage in sexual acts and obey mundane commands-also shared their accounts of the singer.

She urged anyone who may be a victim to come forward and call the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Division at 773-674-6492.

Kelly has not commented on the latest allegations made in the series but his attorney said the allegations are false, calling this another round of stories. The alleged incident went down in May 2018, and Timothy Savage made a report to police in Henry County.

The hip-hop and R&B community continues to speak out against R. Kelly.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Illinois' Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called for victims of the singer to come forward.

Trump's tweet today comes as he faces heat over the ongoing government shutdown, in which FEMA is partially affected. Trump's threat to withhold FEMA funds from recent wildfire survivors drew a swift rebuke from California Sen.

Alongside his emotional plea, Timothy wrote, "Joycelyn daddy always love you please call me I need to hear from you your mommy need to hear from you and your grandmother need to hear from you and uncle's".

Foxx stated that her office has been in contact with Chicago police, who say that they have performed wellness checks at various locations linked to Kelly.

In addition to Russell's threats, police have issued an arrest warrant for Kelly's former manager, #JamesMason.

The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July a year ago. It's unclear if the caller was just pranking Kelly, or if the person really thought there was an arrest warrant ... but cops tell us they routinely respond to such calls ... just to make sure.

The recent Lifetime documentary series details the years leading up to and following the six-year legal saga that culminated with Kelly being acquitted of child pornography charges by a Cook County jury in 2008.

"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.
