While no charges have now been brought in Kelly's other residence of Chicago, Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference on Tuesday to encourage any victims to "please come forward".

Prosecutors in IL and Georgia have opened investigations into allegations made against the singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly.

The Cook County, Illinois, State's Attorney Kim Foxx is seeking to talk to any victims of sexual assault or domestic violence similar to the accounts several women revealed in "Surviving R. Kelly".

The incident, which allegedly took place in May 2018, was reported by Timothy Savage to Henry County police.

R. Kelly denies the allegations against him. "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.

"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". Through interviews with family members and former members of the Kelly's inner circle, the report alleged that the singer kept at least six women in a "cult" across his properties in Chicago and Atlanta.

A video resurfaced last week of Kelly claiming that the #MuteRKelly movement is "too late" and that they should have "done this shit 30 years ago".

R. Kelly is now being investigated in Georgia for his actions in the past of having sex with teenage girls, videotaping them, and assaulting them on Lifetime's recent Surviving R. Kelly documentary series which lasted over three days.

She added that her office is talking to two families whose loved ones had been in contact with Kelly.

Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations".

Foxx said her office has been in contact with two families who say they were victims. "People know if they are a victim of a crime to contact the police".

"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said.

There has been no official word from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. He was acquitted of engaging in sex acts with a 13-year-old in 2008.
