Georgia Official Calls For Criminal Investigation Into R Kelly Allegations

A statement shared by Kelly's spokesman Trevian Kutti and attributed to his attorneys called the allegations against Kelly "false and ill-motived" and said the singer "denies any and all wrongdoing".

Eaves released a press statement on August 11, stating that he has received additional information and evidence from the John Creek Police Department, that he believes is all the Fulton County D.A.'s Office "needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations".

"We are not investigating Mr. Kelly; we are merely reviewing the informational file provided by the Johns Creek Police Department".

A Georgia official is calling for a full criminal investigation into R Kelly, following allegations that the singer is holding young women against their will in a sexually exploitative cult.

No one should be above the law, because of their income or their zip code. He said, "We will not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free". DeRogatis, a veteran music journalist, was also the first to report on Kelly's alleged sexual relationships with minors.

If you recall, original reports surfaced from parents that Kellz was allegedly holding several young women against their will after promising a slew of them he would be advancing their musical careers. Punishments for disobeying Kelly are reportedly physical and verbal. "He is a puppet master", Cheryl Mack told BuzzFeed.

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to send a letter to Live Nation requesting the cancellation of the upcoming concert.

Parents of an Atlanta woman said to be living with R. Kelly spoke out on July 17, with the woman's father, Tim Savage, saying that his 22-year-old daughter, Jocelyn Savage, was "being held against her will" and the last time he saw her she was in "a awful condition".

However, according to TMZ, Johns Creek Police Department officials have denied Eaves' claims, insisting they are not planning to open an investigation.
