Kelly Not Currently Under Investigation, Georgia District Attorney Says

Kelly Not Currently Under Investigation, Georgia District Attorney Says

Howard, Jr. says his office received a file "involving" Kelly from the Johns Creek Police Department Monday. We will review (the file) and confer with the Johns Creek policemen after our evaluation and proceed appropriately...

"There is no allegation of any type of criminal activity that has been alleged - nothing that's been alleged here that is against Georgia law - so there is no investigation from the Johns Creek Police Department at this point", said Capt. Chris Byers of the police department.

"We are not now investigating Mr. Kelly..." "He again denies any and all wrongdoing".

Eaves, who is also running for Atlanta mayor, has also been at the forefront of an effort to cancel an upcoming R.Kelly performance scheduled at Georgia's Wolf Creek Amphitheatre. Kelly also stays at Trump Tower in Chicago.

"As of this morning, I had a brief conversation with District Attorney, Paul Howard", Eaves said at a press conference announcing the developments.

"But it is not my role as chairman of Fulton County to know the contents of that investigation", he said.

"I believe that it's important for me as chairman of Fulton County to speak out and support this investigation", Eaves said.

Live Nation did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Eaves said "a lot of folks" contacted him and urged a more thorough probe. Three former members of Kelly's inner circle reported that he controls every aspect of the women's lives, including their diet, wardrobe, sleeping habits and sexual encounters. He is said to be housing them at both his Duluth, Ga. "We gave them everything (we) had".

The R&B singer stands accused by parents of holding their young adult daughters in an abusive "cult" run out of homes he maintains across the country, including Atlanta, according to a BuzzFeed report published last month.

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.

"Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name".
