"We are in the process of evaluating the file. Once the evaluation is complete, we will take the appropriate action", Fulton County district attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr. said in a statement sent to USA TODAY. The women are all above the age of consent, the outlet reports. In a statement provided to Rolling Stone, a representative for Kelly, Trevian Kutti stated that there was no police investigation. "He again denies any and all wrongdoing".

A spokesman for the John's Creek Police Department said in an email to The Independent that "there is absolutely no new evidence against R Kelly". Kelly also stays at Trump Tower in Chicago.

"A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney's Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations", Eaves said in a statement ahead of the press conference.

Though the DA's sex trafficking division does have a file on the allegations, Howard said on Friday (Aug. 11) the office has no immediate plans to investigate the matter.

At least if Atlanta official John Eaves has it his way! Live Nation is contracted to manage all concerts at Wolf Creek and Fulton County does not have legal right to cancel the concert.

Live Nation did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Eaves was also involved in the call for canceling R. Kelly's Atlanta tour date, but that is still set for August 25.

Eaves said "a lot of folks" contacted him and urged a more thorough probe. The story claims Kelly dictates what the women eat, when they sleep and how they engage in sexual situations with him.

The R&B singer stands accused by parents of holding their young adult daughters in an abusive "cult" run out of homes he maintains across the country, including Atlanta, according to a BuzzFeed report published last month. The woman, who authorities said had no visible injuries or markings, told officers she was "fine and did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people".
