"I'm here today to encourage victims of sexual assault or domestic violence related to these allegations to please get in touch with our office", Foxx said at a press conference Tuesday.

Steve Greenberg spoke to FOX 5 Atlanta by phone in response to the recent reports of investigations following a controversial mini-series which aired last week on the Lifetime network about the singer-songwriter.

Griggs said the Fulton County district attorney's office reached out to him on Monday seeking contact information for witnesses. Savage claims his daughter is being held against her will by R. Kelly and Mason threatened him for speaking out about it.

Foxx reiterated that there are dedicated professionals who are willing to help the survivors unpack their horrific experiences and urged victims to call the prosecutor's office at 773-674-6492.

CNN.com reports, "The incident, which allegedly took place in May 2018, was reported by Timothy Savage to Henry County police".

Singer R. Kelly is reportedly being investigated in multiple jurisdictions following the release of a Lifetime docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly", which explores allegations that the Grammy victor sexually abused several victims over a span of decades. She disputed her parent's accusations in a video released by TMZ in 2017, however, her family says the video was staged and Joycelyn Savage was manipulated into the recording.


The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July previous year. The email says detectives would like to meet with Mason to "review his version of events".

"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said.

Mason did not respond to an email Wednesday seeking comment.

In 2008, a Cook County jury found Kelly not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography charges.

The actress, whose latest film A Star Is Born is tipped for Oscar success next month, said "as a victim of sexual assault myself" she was at a "dark time in my life" when she collaborated with Kelly.

R Kelly has hit the headlines since the 'Surviving R Kelly' documentary saw new claims about an underage sexual relationship with Aaliyah as well as other abuse claims revealed.
