Police Investigating Reported Party At R. Kelly’s Chicago Studio

Police Investigating Reported Party At R. Kelly’s Chicago Studio

Foxx said she found the claims in docuseries disturbing. 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. The alleged incident went down in May 2018, and Timothy Savage made a report to police in Henry County.

Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" featured a number of women who confirmed the singer was brainwashing women and holding women against their will in a sex cult at his mansions in IL and Georgia.

Her father says they haven't heard from her in about two years. Chief investigator Cynthia Nwokocha also contacted Joycelyn Savage's family; the family has been fully cooperative.

But Georgia isn't the only jurisdiction where law enforcement officials are taking the allegations of predatory sexual behavior and pedophilia raised in the docuseries against R. Kelly seriously.


The Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney would not comment on the reports of an investigation into Kelly.

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".

Griggs told FOX 5 News that in the past few days, very senior members of the DA's office have contacted Griggs regarding witness information in the case.

He's reportedly put together a packet of evidence that will be given to the Cook County State Attorney.


Timothy previously filed a police report against fellow Kelly manager James Mason, who also allegedly threatened him. It went on to say that Russell accused Savage of lying to Lifetime and said that if Savage continued to support the series, Russell and Kelly would be forced to release information that would show Savage was a liar and that would ruin him, his reputation, his business and his family. "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".

"Please come forward", Foxx said in a press conference.

Gaga went on to state that the title of her 2013 song with Kelly, "Do What U Want (With My Body)", made it "clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time".
