R. Kelly's attorney responds to allegations made in docu-series

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses", Foxx said.

R. Kelly former manager, James Mason, is facing some potential legal trouble after he reportedly threatened one of the singer's victims father. Investigators have made contact with the family of Asante McGee and the attorney for the family of Jocelyn Savage, two of the women who were profiled in the film.

"I hope and pray that the DA makes a move quick from out of Chicago or out of Atlanta because at this point, he may be leaving the country with these girls and whoever to try to flee from this situation", said Timothy Savage.

Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations. The accusations against the 52-year-old were reignited after the six hour docu-series, "Surviving R. Kelly", aired on Lifetime.

Greenberg says the state's attorney shouldn't be soliciting cases, adding there are no current complaints and no evidence because it didn't happen.

In the docuseries, Lisa spoke about meeting R. Kelly in Georgia when she was 17 and carrying on a relationship with him for years afterward.

Meanwhile, in Illinois, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx requested that anyone who believes they have experienced abuse by Kelly to reach out to her office.

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found. The incident in question stems from May 2018 when Mason texted Timothy Savage the following: "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to fucking kill you". The incident was passed on to a magistrate judge in Georgia, who responded by issuing a warrant against Mason for his "terroristic threats and acts" in July. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued past year.

"I was sickened", she said. Mason declined to comment to CNN.com. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. Kelly and the alleged victim, in her 20s at the time of the trial, denied it was them in the video.
