Two women tell cops they’re with R. Kelly ‘voluntarily’ at his Trump Tower home
Two women who were purportedly held against their will at R. Kelly‘s Trump Tower residence in Chicago told police on Friday that they were with the disgraced artist voluntarily.
After the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office was notified, cops made contact with the women, who said they were with the 52-year-old singer by choice, TMZ reported.
The women are reportedly identified as Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, whose parents have participated in the bombshell docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.”
In the Lifetime series, which dropped last week following reports of Kelly’s alleged “sex cult,” the parents of both Savage and Clary described how Kelly got to know their daughters as teenagers and accused him of brainwashing them.
Several other women also came forward with graphically detailed accounts of their experiences with the artist while they were underage, which has led to multiple celebrities publicly denouncing Kelly. His own daughter later called him “a monster” on social media.
He is also the subject of a criminal investigation in Georgia thanks in part to the series which included footage of the mansion he once owned in the town of Johns Creek.
However, in a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press on Friday, the “Ignition” singer’s attorney denied all accusations.
“The allegations aren’t true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone,” attorney Steve Greenberg told The AP. “Now, some producer went running around and solicited all these people, did a Jerry Springer-esque show and there is all this uproar. It’s disgusting.”
Greenberg claimed the women associated with Kelly approached him in hopes of a music career and then became “disgruntled” when things didn’t work out.
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office did not immediately return our request for comment.
