In 1995, when he was 27, he briefly married the late singer Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time (in Surviving R. Kelly an executive who formerly worked with the singer says he forged Aaliyah's birth date on the marriage license to say she was 18, and another witness says she saw Kelly and Aaliyah having sex).
Kelly's award winning career has been shadowed by sexual misconduct allegations for more than two decades. According to the girl's father, Mason told him, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f***ing kill you".
Chris Hopper, a spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office, had no comment on whether or not an investigation into Kelly is indeed underway.
TMZ has learned that law enforcement officials have a "person of interest" in mind, for a shooting threat that occurred during an advance screening of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly. In a statement, Simonton said, "We can confirm that the office has received calls related to this matter". She said that so far, families of two alleged victims have come forward.
"So what you think I felt".
Another woman, who was born in Chicago but has since moved to Detroit, said that her incident with Kelly happened while at her grandmother's house on the South Side in the mid-'80s.
Gaga had come under scrutiny in 2013 when she made a decision to collaborate with Kelly, despite his alleged history of sexual misconduct, performing the song together at the American Music Awards that same year.
"In order to have an investigation we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forward with information", Foxx said.
Parents of girls in R Kelly's camp accuse him of keeping them psychologically and sexually imprisoned. "She essentially went up there and said, 'We have no evidence of a crime, but if someone would like to make something up, please call us'".
The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July past year. His albums continued to top charts while he was on trial for child pornography, and many of his hit songs, like "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", are still played widely.
