Police reportedly called after R. Kelly spotted at Chicago night club

Police reportedly called after R. Kelly spotted at Chicago night club

The grassroots effort seeks to cancel Kelly's concerts, get his music off the air and hold him accountable for allegations of abuse.

Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

The accusers, all black women, said years after the trial that Kelly kept them locked up and used them for sex at his will.

"I have been a longtime R. Kelly fan", Bridges said.

Griggs said the Fulton County district attorney's office reached out to him on Monday seeking contact information for witnesses.

Greenberg also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation.

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

He's reportedly put together a packet of evidence that will be given to the Cook County State Attorney. In a statement, Simonton said, "We can confirm that the office has received calls related to this matter".

A lawyer for Kelly on Tuesday said the allegations in the Lifetime documentary were false.

She also added: "I'm sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner".

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.

Some of Williams' memories echo those of other women who said they were abused by the music star on Lifetime's six-part documentary series, "Surviving R. Kelly".

Timothy reported Mason to the Henry County Police. Savage said he and his wife were involved with Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series.

"We have no criminal complaints from anyone about the location but we strongly urge anyone that may have information on potential criminal activity to please contact police", CPD spokesman Tom Ahern stated in an email.

In 1995, when he was 27, he briefly married the late singer Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time (in Surviving R. Kelly an executive who formerly worked with the singer says he forged Aaliyah's birth date on the marriage license to say she was 18, and another witness says she saw Kelly and Aaliyah having sex). The report doesn't say what the relationship between Mason and Kelly is.

By some freaky coincidence (or not!) Donnel Russell was the name that appeared in a police report filed by the father of Joycelyn Savage, a young woman that helped form the basis of the "R. Kelly sex cult allegations", tabled previous year. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued past year.

And according to CNN, Mason threatened Timothy in May 2018 after the concerned dad talked about his daughter in interviews. In 2008, although authorities charged Kelly with 21 counts of child pornography, Kelly became acquitted of all charges.
