The Lifetime series reported that their daughter has repeatedly denied that Kelly has done anything wrong and has said she doesn't want to talk to her family. While Foxx said that her office has not been in contact with Fulton County, they are willing to share any "relevant information" between their offices.

"I hope and pray that the DA makes a move quick from out of Chicago or out of Atlanta because at this point, he may be leaving the country with these girls and whoever to try to flee from this situation", said Timothy Savage.

Following the finale of Surviving R. Kelly on January 5, it has been reported that the Fulton County District Attorney has begun interviews in the latest probe into the ongoing allegations against Kelly, including one of his alleged sex cult hostages, 23-year-old Jocelyn Savage. Foxx stated that her office has already been in contact with the families of two alleged victims - both of whom are over the age of 18 - but empasized that cooperation from other victims or witnesses is essential in order for her office to properly investigate the claims.

The chips are falling for R. Kelly and his team.

Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time". "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they've seen, heard or experienced".

The report says the case is being forwarded to the criminal investigations division for review.

James Mason was cited in an incident report for threatening Joycelyn Savage's father, Timothy.

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found.

Capt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department confirmed by email Wednesday that a magistrate judge had issued a warrant for Mason on charges of terroristic threats and acts. Mason declined to comment to CNN.com. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. His albums continued to top charts while he was on trial for child pornography, and many of his hit songs, like "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", are still played widely.
