Chicago State Prosecutor Urges Alleged R. Kelly Victims to Come Forward
Although R. Kelly is under investigation in Georgia, the singer is not being investigated in Chicago, another place he's faced numerous abuse allegations. Now, in light of the increased attention alleged R. Kelly victims are getting after the airing of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, a Chicago state attorney has stepped forth to urge them to come forward and speak.
At press conference on Tuesday (Jan. 8), State Attorney Kim Foxx asked R. Kelly victims to come forward and contact her office. She said that the allegations raised in the docuseries were “deeply disturbing.” "I was sickened as a mother, I was sickened as a prosecutor,” she said at the press conference (via a video posted on TMZ).
Foxx said that her office have already been talking to two families of alleged victims that had been in contact with the R&B singer within the last few years. Both victims are over the age of 18, she added.
Foxx wants anyone with information to contact her office at (773) 674-6492.
This news follow reports that the Fulton County District Attorney's Office is launching an investigation into R. Kelly. Joycelyn Savage, who used to lived in an alleged sex cult in the singer's Georgia mansion, has been contacted by the D.A. in regards to the case. They apparently want Savage to come in for questioning.
