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.
Singer R. Kelly is reportedly being investigated in multiple jurisdictions following the release of a Lifetime docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly", which explores allegations that the Grammy victor sexually abused several victims over a span of decades.
R. Kelly's attorney, Stephen Greenberg, called Foxx's request absurd.
Some may have thought perhaps he'd not draw attention to himself amid the latest allegations levelled against him from a slew of women who claim to have been held as sex slaves in the singer's home.
Amid publicized allegations against him, R. Kelly made a surprise public appearance-with a defiant message.More news: Chargers Tackle Russell Okung Believes The NFL Doesn’t Want Them To Win

"Don says several times that Timothy is providing Lifetime with false information, and that he continues supporting the documentary that they (R. Kelly / Don) would be forced to release information disproving Don..." However, Kelly's turn up ended up becoming a police probe after someone called the cops on him, claiming he was at the nightclub despite there being a warrant out for his arrest.
In some cases, the women say they were underage. Apparently, the person likely responsible for administering the threat is a known business of R. Kelly named Donnel Russell. Foxx said she found the claims in docu-series disturbing. In the police report, Timothy said Mason stated, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f***ing kill you."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued past year. She has not, however, been in touch with Kelly.
Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008.
The "Ignition (Remix)" singer, 52, has been in a bit of an ongoing battle with the studio's management, which is located on the West Side of Chicago.
