Savage previously denied allegations that Kelly kept her against her will, despite claims made by her family, who have not seen her in more than two years. That latest report shows the parents of alleged victim #JoycelynSavage were threatened by Kelly's managers, #DonRussell and James Mason, before and after their cooperation with the docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly".
She urged anyone who may be a victim to come forward and call the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Division at 773-674-6492.
Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time". A Stockbridge police report says Timothy Savage told an officer on January 3 that Don Russell had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air. The series featured accounts from accusers and Kelly's close friends on his life and allegations of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia.
On Tuesday, Foxx reached out to any potential victims of Kelly to come forward.
"Don says several times that Timothy is providing Lifetime with false information, and that he continues supporting the documentary that they (R. Kelly / Don) would be forced to release information disproving Don..."
Lady Gaga is pulling her 2013 song with R. Kelly, "Do What U Want (With My Body)" from streaming services. The report doesn't say what the relationship between Mason and Kelly is.
The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July past year.
Mason did not respond to an email on Wednesday seeking comment. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. "No one has ever seen any evidence of it".
The singer has long since dodged conviction, getting acquited of charges of child pornography back in 2008.
The "Ignition (Remix)" singer, 52, has been in a bit of an ongoing battle with the studio's management, which is located on the West Side of Chicago.
