A warrant has been issued for R. Kelly's former manager who threatened a father of one of the victims. Asante McGee, one of the women who detailed Kelly's alleged abuse against her on the show, confirmed to TMZ she was contacted by authorities while the attorney for the family of another alleged Kelly captive, Joycelyn Savage, also confirmed speaking with investigators.

R. Kelly is reportedly under investigation in the state of Georgia.

The series, which aired earlier this month, looks at the singer's history and allegations that he has sexually abused women and girls.

The fallout from Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly continues to play out.

Representatives for R. Kelly have been pushing back against the claims, with the singer's Chicago attorney, Steve Greenberg, telling WGN-TV of the docuseries: "There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story".

Foxx called a press conference to make it known that she is willing to look into opening an investigation, but needs the unknown accusers and their families to come forward.

Ranveer says he feels bad when someone's film doesn't work at the box office as everyone is a part of the same industry. When " Asli Hip Hop " came out with Spitfire, people were asking who is this kid? Both of them are special to me.

Also in Chicago, according to WMAQ, police confirmed Wednesday that they conducted a "business check" at Kelly's recording studio on the city's West Side but "have no criminal complaints from anyone about the location".

"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety".

Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims.

The New York Times reports that investigators from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office in Georgia contacted Gerald A. Griggs, the lawyer for Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage, on Monday.

"I was sickened by the allegations". Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. "My intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn't processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life", she wrote.

Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for "I Believe I Can Fly", and is known for such raunchy hits as "Bump N' Grind" and "Ignition".
