R.Kelly Is Under Investigation And Could Face Criminal Charges After Six-Part Documentary

Chicago native Robert Sylvester Kelly better know as R.Kelly is receiving a lot of heat after the airing of Lifetime’s explosive docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly”, a six-part, recently concluded documentary that explores a history of sexual assault and mental abuse allegations leveled against him.

For years, R.Kelly has been under the spotlight for his alleged sex preferences for teenage girls,  at one point actually having been under trial for performing sexual acts with a 14 year old. The sextape used as evidence in his case was dismissed by the jury and R.Kelly was then found innocent, leaving parents of his alleged victims in tears.

The documentary brings out new alleged victims and confessions of parents who accuse the R&B legend of “brainwashing” the young girls and keeping them away from their families so that he can have complete controller them.

R.Kelly announced a week after the show aired that he will launch a website called SurvivingLies.com, where he plans to “expose all of his accusers as liars as well as reveal their true motivations behind their allegations.” Though the site is not live yet, a Facebook page has been launched in the meantime and the first woman the page’s administrators target is alleged victim Asante McGee. Facebook has now closed the fan page, showing their support towards the victims’ side of the story.

Things seem to be getting worse for the artist as ccording to multiple outlets, the Fulton County District Attorney’s office is looking into sexual abuse allegations brought up against the disgraced singer. Authorities have reportedly reached out to multiple women who are involved in the scandal, including his alleged hostage Joycelyn Savage, a 23-year-old woman who has been living with the entertainer for the past several years. Chicago prosecutor Kimberly Foxx urged any potential victims of Kelly to come forward, saying: “There’s nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses. We cannot seek justice without you.”

Needless to say this is a very serious situation and we are yet to see how it will evolve and if more evidence will surface.
