"As a leader of a team where women contribute unselfishly, in a business where the majority of our audience is women, as a son, a brother and a husband of a devoted family, and to hear and see the pain and suffering that is real for so many, effective immediately, we will no longer play the music of R. Kelly", Watts said.

As you may know, R. Kelly allegedly was married to a 15-year-old Aaliyah when he was 27-years-old, and Kelly also had a child pornography charge for which he was inevitably exonerated.

However, in a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press on Friday, the "Ignition" singer's attorney denied all accusations.

R. Kelly's daughter Joann Kelly, aka Buku Abi, with whom he is estranged, called him a "monster" on Instagram, writing: "I am well aware of who and what he is".

"The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone".

Ms Foxx's office said in a brief statement Friday that people have contacted prosecutors and that authorities are "following up on these calls".

Greenberg alleged Kelly had "no idea" she was under the age of consent.

Kelly has been the subject of increasing scrutiny since a Lifetime documentary series aired this month highlighting stories from women that accuse him of sexual abuse.

"The police found nothing because there's nothing wrong", he said.

The docuseries featured dozens of women, former employees and music celebrities all claiming that Kelly preyed on underage girls and sexually, physically and mentally abused them.

Greenberg noted the timing of documentary, after sexual misconduct allegations that have derailed the careers of several famous men. "Now, some producer went running around and solicited all these people, did a Jerry Springer-esque show and there is all this uproar".
