R. Kelly under Investigation following Lifetime's Documentary

Also on Wednesday night (Thursday AEDT), Lady Gaga apologised for 'Do What U Want, ' her 2013 collaboration with Kelly, and said she will remove the song from streaming services.

The website claimed law enforcement did attend the club and "made contact" with Kelly, however they soon determined there was "no actual arrest warrant" and the man continued his celebrations in peace. Kelly has denied the allegations and reportedly threatened to sue Lifetime before the series went to air.

Kelly turned 52 years old on January 8.

A video resurfaced last week of Kelly claiming that the #MuteRKelly movement is "too late" and that they should have "done this shit 30 years ago".

Foxx said she has been "in contact with" people who have information related to claims in Cook County.

Chris Hopper, a spokesman, for the Fulton County district attorney's office, declined to comment. Foxx said that the relatives of two missing women have contacted her office with concerns about possible contact with Kelly.


The calls came a day after state's attorney Kim Foxx made a plea to any alleged victim of the singer to come forward. The unnamed victim accuses the singer of plying her with alcohol, restraining her and giving her a sexually transmitted disease. The office said it is "reviewing and following up" on the calls, but has no additional information at this time.

Kelly's Chicago attorney, Steve Greenberg, said in a phone interview Tuesday evening that the allegations in the Lifetime documentary were false.

Greenberg says the state's attorney shouldn't be soliciting cases, adding there are no current complaints and no evidence because it didn't happen. This comes after news that Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia, that his manager is also under investigation, and that an arrest warrant is out for his former manager.

"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police.

In 1995, when he was 27, he briefly married the late singer Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time (in Surviving R. Kelly an executive who formerly worked with the singer says he forged Aaliyah's birth date on the marriage license to say she was 18, and another witness says she saw Kelly and Aaliyah having sex).

He then went on to suggest that Kelly would "go away" and his music would be less popular if people stopped talking about him.
