R Kelly denies all allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive treatment

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing.

Since the airing of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, the Chicago native singer's dark and disturbing skeletons have been laid bare. R Kelly made a scheduled appearance at the popular nightclub V75 - and less than an hour after it opened, the club was so packed, they had to turn people away.

Police officers reportedly visited R. Kelly's apartment on Friday after an anonymous caller claimed he was holding two women hostage. The docuseries featured dozens of women, former employees and music celebrities all claiming that Kelly preyed on underage girls and sexually, physically and mentally abused them. But an IL prosecutor's plea for potential victims and witnesses to come forward has sparked hope among some advocates that the R&B star might face new charges.

I have never heard from an attorney for a victim or an alleged victim.

He also confirmed that Kelly was married to Aaliyah Haughton when she was 15.

Trump indicates he won’t declare national emergency over border wall ‘so fast’
Asked why he had yet to declare a national emergency , he said he was giving Congress a chance to "act responsibly". He asserted that a border wall is needed because "23% of Federal inmates are illegal immigrants".


Reuters was unable independently to verify the accusations in the documentary and could not immediately reach prosecutors for comment.

Greenberg explained that he and Kelly "have not looked at all of the women" that appeared in the documentary, adding that "all that matters is that whatever any of them are saying did not happen". In 2008, the singer was tried and acquitted on child pornography charges in Chicago.

Kannie Yu LaPack, a spokeswoman for Lifetime, said: "The women's stories speak for themselves".

After the documentary aired, singer Lady Gaga vowed to remove a duet she recorded with Kelly from streaming services and never collaborate with him again.
