R n B star, R. Kelly is once again under investigation following the ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ documentary series aired by Lifetime.

The documentary had sparked renewed interest in allegations of abuse and running a sex cult against the singer, contains interviews from his alleged victims and families of girls still with him.

Chicago prosecutor, Kimberly Foxx has called on any survivors and witnesses of Kelly’s alleged abuse to contact her office to help the county build a criminal case against Kelly.

She said, “Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses,” she said. “We cannot seek justice without you.” Foxx confirmed that, since the broadcast, her office had heard from two families in the Chicago area who were concerned about a relative’s recent contact with Kelly.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, rubbished Foxx’s plea for help describing it as “ridiculous”.  “There’s nothing there. When you fish for this kind of stuff the riffraff come out and you end up with wrongful accusations,” he said.

R.Kelly has however not offered any comment on Lifetime’s docuseriesa.
