An arrest warrant was issued this past summer for a man named James Mason, R. Kelly's former manager, after Mason was accused of threatening to kill Joycelyn Savage's father Timothy Savage, CNN is reporting.

Kelly's award winning career has been shadowed by sexual misconduct allegations for more than two decades. The original deal for Kelly to pay for the property went for 10 years with a monthly payment of $22,927.41.

Neither woman lives in Chicago, but both said they were the victims of inappropriate conduct by Kelly in the city - one in a home on the South Side in the mid-1980s and the other at the R&B singer's warehouse/studio space in the 200 block of North Justine in 2002.

"I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously", she wrote.

The six-part series includes interviews with R. Kelly associates, relatives, and accusers - many of whom claim they were teenagers at the time they were abused, according to The New York Times. Foxx said she was "sickened" by the accounts described in the "Surviving R. Kelly" Lifetime television series, but said she has not - and can not - open a criminal probe in the absence of cooperating witnesses.

"R. Kelly and I have sometimes very untrue things written about us, so in a way this was a bond between us", she said at the time.

He said he accepted the invitation "in furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers ". Cohen once said he would take a bullet for Trump, who called his former close confidante a "Rat" on Twitter in mid-December.

"I don't think Kim Foxx should be giving any legitimacy to reality TV allegations", he said Tuesday. We're told investigators were flooded with calls once the docuseries aired. The #MuteRKelly movement has been putting pressure on radio stations to stop playing Kelly's music in light of the sexual abuse allegations against him. "What I am hearing about the allegations against R. Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible". She has been in touch with families from the docu-series who are looking for their loved ones.

"No one has ever seen any evidence of it", he said.

"In order to have an investigation we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forward with information", Foxx said.
