R. Kelly facing criminal investigations after Lifetime documentary exposes abuse allegations

Police Investigating Reported Party At R. Kelly’s Chicago Studio

The accusations against Mason resurfaced recently after a police report was filed against Kellz' current manager for a very similar incident. Kelly and the alleged victim, in her 20s at the time of the trial, denied it was them in the video. The singer has also denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

He's reportedly put together a packet of evidence that will be given to the Cook County State Attorney.

In May, R. Kelly's former manager, James Mason, was arrested after being accused of threatening to kill a man who says Kelly is holding his daughter against her will, CNN reported.

- The Chicago-based attorney for musician R. Kelly broke his silence Wednesday evening defending his client. Streaming live from the State Attorney's Office, Foxx issued a clear and specific call to action, urging anyone who has a story to tell to come forward.

Executive produced by Dream Hampton, the docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly" detailed accounts from people in Kelly's circle, including the singer's brother, Bruce, who said Kelly had a "preference" for young women and singer Sparkle (the aunt of the 14-year-old in the sex tape) who testified against him in court.

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

Investigators in Georgia made contact with various witnesses included in the Lifetime docuseries, according to a TMZ report released Tuesday.

Steve Greenberg spoke to FOX 5 Atlanta by phone in response to the recent reports of investigations following a controversial mini-series which aired last week on the Lifetime network about the singer-songwriter. Prosecutors had argued a videotape showed him engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued a year ago.

The singer has long since dodged conviction, getting acquited of charges of child pornography back in 2008. Despite his legal troubles a decade ago, he still retains a following.

R Kelly has hit the headlines since the 'Surviving R Kelly' documentary saw new claims about an underage sexual relationship with Aaliyah as well as other abuse claims revealed.
