Through interviews with family members and former members of the Kelly's inner circle, the report alleged that the singer kept at least six women in a "cult" across his properties in Chicago and Atlanta.

R. Kelly former manager, James Mason, is facing some potential legal trouble after he reportedly threatened one of the singer's victims father.

In recent days, Kelly has faced increased pressure from advocates who have protested outside of his Chicago studio and demanded that police investigate allegations against minors. Our sources are hoping officials stop the singer ASAP, including charging him with a crime to possibly freeze his passport and keep him in the United States.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly's attorney in Chicago, Steve Greenberg, has denied the allegations against his client, claiming that they're just "another round of stories" being used to "fill reality TV time". A Stockbridge police report says Timothy Savage told an officer on January 3 that Don Russell had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation".

I was sickened as a mother. Chicago PD, of course, sprang into action after receiving the call and went to the club to make contact with Kelly.

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that the District Attorney's Office of Fulton County, Georgia, are "conducting interviews" regarding the accusations featured on Surviving R. Kelly. But an IL prosecutor's plea for potential victims and witnesses to come forward has sparked hope among some advocates that the R&B star might face new charges. In 2008, although authorities charged Kelly with 21 counts of child pornography, Kelly became acquitted of all charges. There are no photos of him with these women. A lawyer representing an Atlanta-area couple who appeared in the Lifetime documentary said Georgia prosecutors have reached out to him. She has not, however, been in touch with Kelly.

In 2000, the Sun-Times was the first major media outlet to report on allegations of inappropriate behavior involving Kelly and underage girls. The singer was later indicted on child pornography charges and it appeared that Kelly's career was in jeopardy.
