Following the widespread viewership of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docuseries and pending investigations into multiple criminal allegations, the R&B singer R. Kelly is reportedly having panic attacks, with doctors visiting him at home and one instance serious enough to send him to a hospital.

"I've seen some of the interviews on it", Greenberg said.

When he spoke with the publication, Watts said he has actually gotten mixed reactions from listeners, many of which have thanked him, while others have condemned the station for throwing a man under the bus who hasn't been proven guilty yet. "Now she wants an Academy Award, so now all of a sudden he's some awful person", he said.

R. Kelly performs in concert at Barclays Center on September 25, 2015 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

He also confirmed that Kelly was married to Aaliyah Haughton when she was 15.

"The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone".

Even as he denied the allegations, Mr Greenberg said he did not know details about them.

His ex-wife Andrea Kelly, whom he divorced in 2009, accused him of domestic abuse last year and feared for her life during one attack during their 13-year marriage, which ended in 2009. However it was not necessary to clarify whether there was any truth to their claims as they didn't go to the police or provide and physical evidence, he said.

Kelly's local attorney, Steve Greenberg, said the check by police supports his vehement denials of the mounting accusations against the singer.

At the same time, Greenberg said he didn't think Kelly's career would be hurt by the allegations.

The woman allegedly met R. Kelly in 2017 when she was 19 and he began to groom her to join his sex cult, she told authorities. "Except that my understanding is that she did not claim to be 15 and, in order to get married, she had to lie about her age".
