Jocelyn Savage's parents have filed harassment claims against R Kelly's manager Don Russell after they claim he sent them threats following their appearance in the "Surviving R Kelly" documentary.

Russell called Savage while the officer was there and Savage put the phone on speaker so the officer could listen, the police report says.

According to reports, the incident between Mason and Kelly's alleged sexual partner Joycelyn Savage's dad Timothy Savage allegedly went down last May. Authorities in IL and Georgia are reportedly interested in opening investigations into mental and physical abuse accusations in the respective states.

This week, protesters held a march in front of a studio allegedly connected to R. Kelly. In 2015, she released the song Til It Happens to You for a documentary about sexual assault on college campuses titled The Hunting Round. "I've worked in this office for a number of years including in 2008, and so the allegations were not new to me, but I think listening to survivors and giving the platform for survivors to tell their stories was heartbreaking". "I was sickened as a prosecutor".

"I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously", she wrote in part. Various former members of Kelly's inner circle, family, music industry associates and psychologist weighing in on the trauma linked to Kelly's style of alleged abuse were also featured in the three-night series.

Prosecutors in IL and Georgia have opened investigations into allegations made against the singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly.

There has been no official word from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. Kelly and the alleged victim, in her 20s at the time of the trial, denied it was them in the video. "No one has found any sex slaves or underage girls because there aren't any".

"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said.

Kelly rose from poverty on Chicago's South Side to become a star singer, songwriter and producer.
