Warrant Issued for R. Kelly's Ex Manager Over Threats to Victim's Family

Joycelyn Savage's family has claimed she is having a sexual relationship with Kelly, and that she is being manipulated by him into cutting off contact with the outside world.

Her office covers Chicago where Kelly has a home.

This comes a day after Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx made an urgent plea for R. Kelly sexual abuse victims to come forward.

It's put the spotlight back on the embattled singer's alleged troubles, but his lawyer is dismissing the allegations.

"If we are going to take these allegations seriously - it isn't one of those situations where it's just forensics, we need actual witnesses and victims to have the courage to tell their stories", she said.

Her father says they haven't heard from her in about two years.

The production won best original song for " Shallow ", the heart-wrenching tune performed by Cooper, 44, and Gaga in the movie. As for MeToo and Golden Globes circa 2018, this year things were somewhat back to standard red carpet chatter.

Following the finale of Surviving R. Kelly on January 5, it has been reported that the Fulton County District Attorney has begun interviews in the latest probe into the ongoing allegations against Kelly, including one of his alleged sex cult hostages, 23-year-old Jocelyn Savage. Her whereabouts remain unknown and the new docu-series documents her parents' painful search for her.

Kelly's attorney Stephen Greenberg is calling Foxx's request for victims to come forward "absurd". "No one has ever seen any evidence of it". "There are no photos of [Kelly] with these women".

The accusations against the 52-year-old were reignited after the six hour docu-series, "Surviving R. Kelly", aired on Lifetime.

The Associated Press reported that in 2008, a Cook County jury acquitted Kelly on 14 counts of child pornography after he was accused of engaging in sex acts with a girl as young as 13.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions. A BuzzFeed report published in 2017 from Chicago music critic Jim DeRogatis, who has investigated Kelly for more than a decade, renewed public interest in allegations against the musician. Greenberg would not answer questions about the new allegations the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" raise. I'm an open book!
