Georgia Official Calls for Criminal Investigation into R. Kelly, Cites New Evidence

Police report spurs call for R. Kelly investigation in Atlanta

Police report spurs call for R. Kelly investigation in Atlanta

In his statement, Eaves said law enforcement and lawmakers should "not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free".

Howard, Jr. says his office received a file "involving" Kelly from the Johns Creek Police Department Monday.

Parents of an Atlanta woman said to be living with R. Kelly spoke out on July 17, with the woman's father, Tim Savage, saying that his 22-year-old daughter, Jocelyn Savage, was "being held against her will" and the last time he saw her she was in "a frightful condition". Kelly has denied the allegations through a representative.

In a new statement sent to USA TODAY by Kelly's rep, Trevian Kutti, the singer said he is "outraged" by efforts of the county board and Eaves "to interfere with his business interests and now, absent any authority, attempt to have him targeted for investigation". The John Creek Police Department claims they have more information and the Georgia official has called for an "investigation of the well-known allegations".

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Fulton County Chairman John Eaves is calling for an investigation into recent claims that R. Kelly (full name Robert Kelly) is running a cult.

Three sources said to be former members of Kelly's inner circle told Buzzfeed News recently that he 'controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records'.

However, the women in question are above the age of consent, with Jocelyn being 21-years-old and the young girl even came out to say she was "fine", and the media reports were ridiculous.

"The Board made it clear last week that they wish to prevent Mr. Kelly's Atlanta-area concert, though they do not have the authority to do so and are contractually obligated to honor their own agreements".

Asked by a reporter why he injected himself between the police department and the district attorney's office, Eaves cited his role as an elected official.

Kelly has adamantly denied the allegations however, suggesting the rumors are a "bunch of crap".
