R. Kelly's Lawyer Responds To The Accusations In 'Surviving R. Kelly' Docuseries

Illinois and Georgia are said to be looking into investigating the Grammy winner.

(AllHipHop News) Except for a now-removed Facebook page that may or may not have been created by Robert Kelly's team, the R&B singer did not directly address the damning accusations presented in LifeTime's Surviving R. Kelly docuseries. However, an attorney connected to Kelly has now spoken to Billboard.

The publication reports:

In a phone interview Tuesday evening, Kelly's Chicago attorney Steve Greenberg dismissed the claims, calling them "another round of stories" being used to "fill reality TV time."

Surviving R. Kelly laid out three-decades worth of sexual, mental, and physical abuse allegations against Kelly by interviewing the alleged victims, his family members, and former colleagues. The six-part series reportedly led to potential criminal investigations in Cook County, Illinois and Fulton County, Georgia.

"While we do not have any current complaints of misconduct, we strongly encourage anyone who may have information related to the domestic violence allegations, or who suspect or have information about wrongdoing on the part of officers, to please contact Internal Affairs or the external Office of Police Accountability or Chicago Inspector General’s Office so these matters can be independently investigated," said Kim Foxx, Cook County State's Attorney.

Foxx also said she was "sickened" by the "deeply disturbing" allegations after watching the documentary. Greenberg told Billboard he believes it's inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize accusations seen on television without a formal investigation or official charges. Kelly has denied he manipulated or injured any of the girls or women in Surviving R. Kelly.
