R. Kelly's streams increase after docu-series alleges abuse

R. Kelly

In addition to Russell's threats, police have issued an arrest warrant for Kelly's former manager, #JamesMason. Most infamously, Kelly was charged with child pornography in 2000 after the aforementioned video surfaced (Kelly was cleared in 2008 after that woman declined to testify against him).

At least two women have contacted the Cook County State's Attorney's Office since Wednesday afternoon to complain of alleged inappropriate conduct by R. Kelly. He also powerfully sings a few lines from Kelly's 1993 hit "Bump N" Grind.' A rep for the singer did not immediately respond to Variety's request for confirmation that the man was actually Kelly. It remains unclear if the person who called the police was pranking Kelly, or if the person actually thought there was an arrest warrant. As previously reported, Kelly is being criminally investigated in Georgia because of the recently released docu-series, which sent shockwaves throughout audiences with its gripping and harrowing recounts of Kelly's alleged sexual abuse - told by seven alleged survivors - over the last 20-plus years.

Nearly a year later, Kelly was arrested in Florida after authorities found digital images of the singer allegedly involved in sex acts with an underage girl, but those charges were dropped over a dispute on the search warrant. The Savages, who live in Stockbridge, just south of Atlanta, appeared in Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly series. Griggs said Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation". He has denied that allegation.

"I was sickened", she said. "Once he told me that I was at a loss for words".

Kelly details the systemic way Kelly allegedly groomed and lured in young black women with promises of helping them "make it" in the music industry.

'Number one, there was a girl that was trying to talk about it and couldn't.

Savage and his wife have said repeatedly that Kelly has kept their daughter from contacting them since 2016.

In some cases, the women say they were underage.

In the note, Gaga writes about her song with R. Kelly - "Do What U Want", featured on Artpop.

According to TMZ, the Dallas police department is said to have closed an investigation into allegations that the R&B singer infected an anonymous woman with an STD while holding her captive as a sex slave for several months in 2017. His music streamed 870,316 times on January 2, the day before the series premiere, but Nielsen said Thursday Kelly's music garnered almost 1.73 million streams after the sixth episode aired January 6.
