R. Kelly is getting a lot of unflattering headlines this month after Lifetime's docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly" was released. Two radio stations in Dallas have already implemented a ban on the singer's music and dozens of his former collaborators and peers in the music industry have condemned him and the people around him for enabling his behavior. Her father called the police on January 3 and "claimed he was receiving threats by a man named Don Russell, who is the manager for R. Kelly". There's even a meet and greet package that's going for $335.

As it stands, Kelly has yet to speak to the allegations since the documentary has aired. "We can not seek justice without you".

"I was sickened. I was sickened by the allegations, I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I'm sickened as a prosecutor", she said of the docuseries. "In order to have an investigation. we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forth with whatever information that they have", said Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions. The Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation", he said, but they asked him Monday for contact information for witnesses.

Exciting times lie ahead for United, who are also said to be working to strike deals for players in the transfer market. Reading will be without former United defender Tyler Blackett due to suspension while Leandro Bacuna also misses out.

The accusers, all black women, said years after the trial that Kelly kept them locked up and used them for sex at his will. Kelly was hit with 21 counts of child pornography and was found not guilty in 2008.

Apparently, the possible criminal charges are of no concern to R. Kelly, who threw himself a huge birthday bash in Chicago last night at the V75 Lounge.

Kelly rose from poverty on Chicago's South Side to become a star singer, songwriter and producer. A spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office said both women have been missing for three to four years.

"There are no underage women, there is no sex cult, it's all some reality TV made up story", Greenberg said.

However, a representative for McGee has denied that she has been contacted by authorities.

Kelly's Chicago attorney, Steve Greenberg, said in a phone interview that the allegations in the Lifetime documentary were false.

Police said detectives are investigating the claims in the report.
