  • Time's Up: R. Kelly Under Criminal Investigation Following Airing of “Surviving R. Kelly” Documentary

Currently, two women who were subjects in the documentary, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, are said to still be living with R. Kelly.

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 so they can investigate the claims. The Savages, who live in Stockbridge, just south of Atlanta, appeared in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series.

Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

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 also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation. The Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation", he said, but they asked him Monday for contact information for witnesses. "Her family is encouraged by the investigation, but they will be happy once they get to see their daughter", Gerald Griggs, Savage's family attorney, said in a statement.


Savage also called police in May to report that a man named James Mason had threatened him because Savage was trying to reach his daughter, who he said was being held by Kelly, according to a police report.

When the warrant was issued in July, the judge cited "terroristic threats and acts". She disputed her parent's accusations in a video released by TMZ in 2017, however, her family says the video was staged and Joycelyn Savage was manipulated into the recording. The email says detectives would like to meet with Mason to "review his version of events".

Mason did not respond to an email Wednesday seeking comment.

Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008. The special included dozens of interviews with people formerly associated with Kelly, in addition to a number of women detailing their own claims of Kelly's alleged abuse. "I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously".
