Kelly faces new criminal investigation following dream hampton's Lifetime doc

Kelly faces new criminal investigation following dream hampton's Lifetime doc

- The Chicago-based attorney for musician R. Kelly broke his silence Wednesday evening defending his client.

A Florida father who alleges his daughter is being held in a de facto sex cult run by R. Kelly is pushing authorities in that state to launch a criminal investigation into the controversial R&B singer.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx is asking anyone with information to come forward. "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they have seen, heard or experienced".

She responded to this claim in a video released in 2017, in which she denied she's being held and that she had been brainwashed by the Grammy-award winning singer.

"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime documentary series are deeply, deeply disturbing", she said. Families who have tried to rescue their daughters whom they say Kelly has taken captive also appeared in the series.

Kelly's Chicago attorney Steve Greenberg told The Hollywood Reporter that the claims raised during the series as just "another round of stories" in order to "fill reality TV time". There are no photos of him with these women.

Produced by Detroit native dream hampton, the six-part series aired on Lifetime over three-nights, exploring the two decades of allegations levied against the 52-year-old singer and producer ranging from abuse, rape, and pedophilia. 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. Greenberg would not answer questions about the new allegations the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" raise.

Grammy winning singer and songwriter R. Kelly is under legal scrutiny in two states, Georgia and IL, for sexual and physical abuse by multiple women. His albums continued to top charts while he was on trial for child pornography, and many of his hit songs, like "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", are still played widely.
