"There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses", Foxx told the cameras. A Henry County police report states Timothy Savage, who along with his wife participated in the series, told an officer on January 3 that R. Kelly's manager Don Russell had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air.

Her father says they haven't heard from her in about two years.

Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

In Surviving R. Kelly, a six-part series that aired on Lifetime Jan. 3-5, survivors and people who worked with the singer shared their stories of Kelly allegedly sexually preying on underage girls and holding women captive in his homes, among other details.

A Cook County State's Attorney representative said officials are "in the process of reviewing and following up on these calls".

A law enforcement source confirms police are investigating R. Kelly's studio following reports of a party being held there for his birthday Tuesday night.

"I was sickened", she said.

Also in Chicago, according to WMAQ, police confirmed Wednesday that they conducted a "business check" at Kelly's recording studio on the city's West Side but "have no criminal complaints from anyone about the location". 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.

In an incident report obtained by CNN, Timothy Savage stated that Mason said, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f***ing kill you".

When the warrant was issued in July, the judge cited "terroristic threats and acts". The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued a year ago. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.

Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time".

"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".
