Police report spurs call for R. Kelly investigation in Atlanta

R. Kelly has denied the allegations in a statement to TMZ, writing: 'Mr.

Fulton County Chairman John Eaves said Friday he believes the district attorney should "advance" an investigation after Johns Creek Police reportedly turned over "key" evidence for review.

Last month, Buzzfeed broke an explosive story alleging that R. Kelly has been holding and controlling a group of underaged women in a "cult," where he sexually coaches them, makes child pornography, controls their appearance, and dictates when they're allowed to eat, bathe and sleep.

However, it seems that this is truly only the beginning of Kelly's troubles, because Fulton County, GA chairman John H. Eaves has called upon the Georgia DA to launch a criminal investigation based on new evidence he has seen from the John Creek Police Department.

Should R. Kelly also be concerned about an investigation by Eaves?

Over the years Kelly has had multiple accusations of sexual misconduct leveled against him, including a 2008 case where he was acquitted on 14 charges of making child pornography; that case centered around a videotape that prosecutors alleged showed Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office says it's evaluating an "informational file" involving Kelly from the police department but is not actively investigating. "Once the evaluation is complete, we will take the appropriate action". While Eaves said he is unclear as to what that evidence is, he claims it is enough to get the D.A.'s office involved. We let them know what was going on due to the high profile nature of the incident and figured they would be getting calls about it, Byers told AJC.

Though Kelly keeps a primary residence in Chicago, legal grounds to pursue Kelly in Georgia spring from a home he formerly rented in the Atlanta area.

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to send a letter to Live Nation requesting the cancellation of the upcoming concert. Jocelyn Savage responded with a pair of videos claiming that she's happy living under Kelly's tutelage.
