Before the series aired, Kelly and his lawyers had dismissed the accusations and threatened to sue Lifetime.

Future, who collaborated with Kelly on "Tear It Up" off 2013's Black Panties album, went on to clarify his stance.

The probe comes after the airing of Surviving R. Kelly, the Lifetime docuseries that featured wide-ranging interviews with Kelly's family members, former friends and colleagues, but most notably, women who claim that for decades the hit-making singer and producer used his power and influence to sexually and physically abuse women and young girls.

"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police. As a student of R. Kelly for the time I was, having been around his light and understanding the obstacles that he overcame as a child to be birthed into the musical genius he is today... 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".

The report says the case is being forwarded to the criminal investigations division for review.

While no charges have now been brought in Kelly's other residence of Chicago, Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference on Tuesday to encourage any victims to "please come forward". In 2015, she released the song Til It Happens to You for a documentary about sexual assault on college campuses titled The Hunting Round.

"I was sickened by the allegations". I was sickened as a mother. "I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me", she said.

Gerald Griggs, an Atlanta-based attorney who represents Savage and his wife, said he has been contacted by both the Fulton County district attorney's office in Atlanta and prosecutors in Chicago. "People know if they are a victim of a crime to contact the police".

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

Gaga and R Kelly worked together on a song called Do What U Want (With My Body), and Gaga has previously explained that the lyrics are about lies people have spread about her and how they can't mess with her confidence.
