However, police said no one was arrested, and there is not an ongoing criminal investigation of Kelly.

R. Kelly's accusers are reportedly anxious the disgraced singer may be planning to flee the country amid his ongoing criminal investigation.

The Lifetime docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly" detailed abuse allegations against R. Kelly in six episodes, but the singer's streaming numbers grew significantly during and after the series.

Now celebs from John Legend, who features in the show, to Lady Gaga, who collaborated with R Kelly back in 2013, to Beyonce's dad, who very closely supervised Destiny's Child when they worked with R Kelly in the 90s, have all spoken out against the musician. Court documents later obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times showed Aaliyah admitted lying about her age on the license.

She continued: "No longer willing to silence my PAIN AND SUGARCOAT THE ABUSE I ENDURED because of how my abuser and his LEGAL TEAM were THREATENING to come against me if I 'didn't choose wisely, NO MORE!" "So I know that he's a pedophile".

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx addressed reporters on Tuesday afternoon after her office had been inundated with calls about the allegations in the documentary, some tied to his Chicago-area home. "We've got so much support and I believe people are really trying to help", she said.

Activists disturbed by the sexual, mental, and physical abuse allegations against the R&B singer started the #MuteRKelly campaign.

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment. She said that so far, families of two alleged victims have come forward.

"There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story", Greenberg said. A BuzzFeed report published in 2017 from Chicago music critic Jim DeRogatis, who has investigated Kelly for more than a decade, renewed public interest in allegations against the musician.

"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.

In a separate report on Wednesday, TMZ said an alleged victim is also planning to press charges against Kelly in New York City with the NYPD's Special Victims Unit. "There are no photos of [Kelly] with these women". Ms. Kelly has never denied Mr. Kelly from seeing their children, he has chosen to not be around.

Timothy Savage told a police officer on 3 January that Don Russell, whom he identified as Kelly's manager, had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air, according to a Henry County police report.
