Cops Show Up At R. Kelly's Residence Following Hostage Reports

The scrutiny also extends to Georgia, where an Atlanta-area couple said Georgia prosecutors have reached out to them after they repeatedly said that Kelly brainwashed their daughter and kept her from contacting them.

Allred says Kelly sent the letter in October to another of Rodgers's attorneys.

In the opening sequence of the first episode of Surviving R Kelly, the stomach-lurching six-part docu-series of Kelly's history of abuse against women, a weeping Jerhonda Pace chokes back tears as she tries to articulate what Kelly did to her.

R. Kelly performs at the BET Awards in Los Angeles.

Since the Lifetime television documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" was shown earlier this month, the singer has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.


Asked if she could say anything to Kelly, Faith Rodgers said her response would be: "Time's up". It was simply a way of standing up for women who have voiced the abuse they endured at the behest of a far more powerful man. Whether we go back years to when he was with Aaliyah or we observe the more recent allegations of a "sex cult", the things Kelly has been accused of are terrible.

R Kelly, real name Robert Sylvester Kelly, is heard saying: 'Right now I'm producing a very talented young lady, she's 14.

Greenberg has also said that R. Kelly did not know the late singer Aaliyah was 15 when he married her. Kelly's estranged daughter, Joann Kelly, whose stage name is Buku Abi, called him a "monster" in a post on Instagram on Thursday, though she did not make any allegations.

It said she should stop if she "really cares about her own reputation".

The singer has always been accused of having sexual contact with underage girls. He went on trial for child pornography but was acquitted.
