R. Kelly's attorney responds to allegations made in docu-series

Warrant issued for R. Kelly's former manager

Kelly's award winning career has been shadowed by sexual misconduct allegations for more than two decades. Mr. Henry James Mason, investigators said in a police report, threatened to harm and kill members of the Savage family in retaliation for attempting to contact daughter Joycelyn Savage.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions. So, they're hoping the 50-year-old singer is charged with a crime so his passport is taken away and he isn't allowed to leave with the girls.

After they described their experiences to the Sun-Times, both women said they called the phone number that Foxx publicized Tuesday evening - the direct line to the state's attorney's office's Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Division - and left messages after their calls went straight to voicemail.

- In the midst of calls for investigations into allegations against singer R. Kelly, the Chicago-based attorney for the musician broke his silence Wednesday evening defending his client.

R. Kelly is not anxious a bit about possible criminal investigations in two states over accusations he's holding women as sex slaves in the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly".

"R. Kelly and I have sometimes very untrue things written about us, so in a way this was a bond between us", she said at the time.

"I knew, morally, we weren't the same", he explained, adding, "It was over".

Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims. "No one has ever seen any evidence of it".

During a news conference on Tuesday, Illinois' Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called for victims of the singer to come forward.

Gaga had come under scrutiny in 2013 when she chose to collaborate with Kelly, despite his alleged history of sexual misconduct, performing the song together at the American Music Awards that same year. The series featured accounts from accusers and Kelly's close friends on his life and allegations of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia.

The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July past year.

Smith also claimed that the wedding had come after Kelly allegedly worrid that he'd gotten Aaliyah pregnant.

As the dark details of Kelly's years of abuse continue to unravel, each day new pieces of information are reported.
