Many on social media were appalled to see the person appearing to be Kelly partying amid the serious allegations against him.

Horrified and disturbed by the findings, Foxx wants to aid victims who seek justice against Kelly and his team of enablers who kept Kelly unscathed by the fire which has yet to engulf him.

"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime documentary series are deeply, deeply disturbing", she said.

Williams reached out to the Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office, had no comment on whether or not an investigation into Kelly is indeed underway.

While no charges have now been brought in Kelly's other residence of Chicago, Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference on Tuesday to encourage any victims to "please come forward".

According to Foxx, the families of two missing women have contacted her office with information concerning R. Kelly. I was sickened as a survivor. I was sickened as a mother. She said that so far, families of two alleged victims have come forward.

Yankees reportedly have not made formal offer to Manny Machado
Levine also reported that "momentum is building" for the White Sox to land Machado despite a front-runner not being clear. Spotrac lists the Phillies at $82.7 million before additions and the Yankees at $120.8 million.

"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. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.

"They really wanted to send that message that they stand in solidarity with those young ladies", said Kenyette Tisha Barnes, founder of the #MuteRKelly movement. He also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterise allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation.

The "Ignition (Remix)" singer, 52, has been in a bit of an ongoing battle with the studio's management, which is located on the West Side of Chicago. Despite his legal troubles a decade ago, he still retains a following.

R. Kelly performs at the BET Awards in Los Angeles in June 2013.

In May, R. Kelly's former manager, James Mason, was arrested after being accused of threatening to kill a man who says Kelly is holding his daughter against her will, CNN reported.

Police confirmed they responded to V75 Lounge, at 75th and Perry, and made contact with Kelly, but did not say why they went to the club.
