A new investigation has been launched into allegations of sexual and physical abuse against R Kelly by prosecutors in Chicago and Atlanta. News of the investigation comes after the premiere episode of the Surviving R Kelly documentary.
Chicago prosecutor Kimberly Foxx has asked any potential victims to come forward:
“There’s nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses. We cannot seek justice without you.”
And Atlanta lawyer Gerald Griggs, who is representing a couple who claim Kelly is holding their daughter against her will, has said the Atlanta DA’s office has approached him regarding potential abuse.
The singer has denied any wrongdoing,
