R. Kelly's Attorney Speaks Out Over Docuseries Allegations

R. Kelly evicted from Near West Side recording studio that doubled as residence R. Kelly’s Lawyer Addresses Sexual Abuse Allegations

R Kelly made a scheduled appearance at the popular nightclub V75 - and less than an hour after it opened, the club was so packed, they had to turn people away.

The singer has for years faced allegations he sexually abused women, but the 52-year-old hasn't been charged and he's denied any wrongdoing.

Greenberg also questioned why some of the women didn't come forward after a 27-minute video surfaced in 2002 that showed a man purported to be Kelly engaged in sex acts involving an underage girl.

The latest accusations echo similar ones against the singer dating back 25 years.

After watching the series, an IL prosecutor issued a plea for potential victims and witnesses to come forward, while Georgia prosecutors have reportedly reached out to a lawyer representing a couple who appear in Surviving R. Kelly.

"We can not seek justice without you", Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx said this week at a news conference.

United States bus driver rescues child found wandering barefoot
Police say the child had been left outside by its mother who may have been suffering from a mental health crisis. A passenger on the bus took off her winter coat and draped it around the baby girl, who was cold to the touch.


The scrutiny also extends to Georgia, where an Atlanta-area couple said Georgia prosecutors have reached out to them after they repeatedly said that Kelly brainwashed their daughter and kept her from contacting them.

He was previously been subjected to sexual impropriety allegations and, in 2008, stood trial on child pornography charges, of which he was acquitted.

"There's women saying things, which is of course their prerogative, but there is no evidence that any of it happened", Greenberg said of the documentary.

Kannie Yu LaPack, a spokeswoman for Lifetime, said: "The women's stories speak for themselves". His music streamed 870,316 times on January 2, the day before the series premiere, but Nielsen said Thursday Kelly's music garnered almost 1.73 million streams after the sixth episode aired January 6.

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