  • R. Kelly Under Investigation in Georgia Following New Documentary's Abuse Allegations: Report

While criticism against the singer has reached its greatest peak in many years with Surviving R. Kelly, accusations of sexual misconduct against the singer date back more than 20 years. This comes after news that Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia, that his manager is also under investigation, and that an arrest warrant is out for his former manager. There's even a meet and greet package that's going for $335.

Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

"We can not seek justice without you", she concluded. One accuser said Kelly forced her to have an abortion.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx announced Tuesday afternoon during a press conference they are asking anyone who may be a victim or has information about a possible victim connected to the allegations against the singer in IL to come forward. Russell allegedly sent text messages the morning of the premiere of "Surviving R. Kelly" that read "it would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air".

"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety".

The show included interviews of 50 individuals, including women who claimed to have suffered from Kelly's alleged mental, physical and sexual abuse.

Many Trump critics posted messages on social media urging the networks not to air an address that could be filled with falsehoods. Democrats are refusing to pay for it, noting that he repeatedly promised that Mexico would foot the bill for it.

A Cook County jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 counts of child pornography in 2008.

Her office covers Chicago where Kelly has a home.

R. Kelly denies the allegations against him.

The 32-year-old added she had wanted to "create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn't processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life".

Kelly rose from poverty on Chicago's South Side to become a star singer, songwriter and producer. Kelly won three Grammys that year for "I Believe I Can Fly", a song that would be sung at churches and graduations across the U.S.

Kelly has not commented on the latest allegations made in the series but his attorney said the allegations are false, calling this another round of stories. Gaga and Kelly filmed a music video for it that was reportedly scrapped in light of the allegations around both Kelly and the video's director, Terry Richardson.
