Fulton Chairman Wants Criminal Investigation Of Singer R. Kelly

Police report spurs call for R. Kelly investigation in Atlanta

The Grammy-winning singer is accused of having sexual relationship with Joycelyn Savage and several other women in an arrangement in which he allegedly controls them and cuts them off from the outside world at his Atlanta-area compound. Eaves, said that indeed, Howard verified that "now there is a potential investigation that will occur".

John Eaves, the chairman of Fulton County, Georgia, said on Friday that an investigation by the Johns Creek Police Department into the pop singer has been handed over to the district attorney's office.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said his office is reviewing a file of complaints against Kelly and said they received the file on Monday, Aug. 7 from the Johns Creek Police Dept. Howard said at the news conference that there is no investigation, and said he has not examined the file.

"We are in the process of evaluating the file. Once the evaluation is complete, we will take the appropriate action".


R. Kelly also released a statement from his legal team, denying the allegations against him.

Representatives for Kelly, Eaves and the Johns Creek Police Department did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment. While Eaves said he is unclear as to what that evidence is, he claims it is enough to get the D.A.'s office involved. "We let them know what was going on due to the high profile nature of the incident and figured they would be getting calls about it".

Fulton County commissioners previously voted unanimously to send a letter to Live Nation to shut down an upcoming Kelly concert in Atlanta on August 25, but Live Nation, which runs his tour, has said the concert will proceed. It is unlawful for the government to interfere with the right of its citizens to lawfully do business, and public servants should not target individual citizens for their own politically motivated purposes.

One of the women, whose family claims she is being held against her will, later spoke to TMZ by video chat to say she was "in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that".
