Fulton Chairman Wants Criminal Investigation Of Singer R. Kelly

Fulton Chairman Wants Criminal Investigation Of Singer R. Kelly

Johns Creek Police in the Atlanta area have turned over an investigation of the singer to the Fulton County District Attorney's office, which will investigate the claims as a criminal matter, Eaves said.

"We are in the process of evaluating the file".

Asked by a reporter why he injected himself between the police department and the district attorney's office, Eaves cited his role as an elected official.

A new call was raised for a criminal investigation into R. Kelly's behavior behind closed doors, but an investigation into the R&B star is not now in progress, officials said Friday.

In a statement (via NBC affiliate WXIA), Eaves wrote: 'A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney's Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations. Live Nation said the concert will take place as scheduled, but has declined further comment. Live Nation is contracted to manage all concerts at Wolf Creek and Fulton County does not have legal right to cancel the concert. "So I feel that I'm speaking very fairly and very honestly on behalf of the people who have contacted me".

Three former members of Kelly's inner circle told BuzzFeed News that he "controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records". He is said to be housing them at both his Duluth, Ga. But in July's investigative piece, DeRogatis presented even more troubling information regarding the R&B singer's alleged "cult".

The story quoted parents and several women alleging that Kelly forms relationships with young women interested in the music industry and then mentally and physically abuses them. She also said she did not know the other woman mentioned by her family. He has also previously been accused of marrying his manager's teen niece, singer Aaliyah.

Kelly has adamantly denied the allegations however, suggesting the rumors are a "bunch of crap". Punishments for disobeying Kelly are reportedly physical and verbal.
