R. Kelly's denies all sexual misconduct allegation through lawyer

  • R. Kelly evicted from Near West Side recording studio that doubled as residence

Watts went on to say to the newspaper that he and the rest of the executives decided it would be best to cut ties with R. Kelly due to the current political and cultural landscape, especially with the rise of the #MeToo movement.

Kelly, whose given name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, was acquitted in 2008 on charges of videotaping himself having sex with a girl who prosecutors allege was as young as 13. "Now she wants an Academy Award, so now all of a sudden he's some bad person", he said.

Officials found that Kelly's involvement in the Spring Break Jam meant that the event didn't meet the criteria established for third party interests who want to lease space from the state (in this case, at the Illinois State Fairgrounds where the event would have been held).

R. Kelly's daughter Joann Kelly, aka Buku Abi, with whom he is estranged, called him a "monster" on Instagram, writing: "I am well aware of who and what he is. I haven't heard from anyone because there's no facts to back up these claims", Greenberg said.

Lawyer Steve Greenberg refuted all claims against the singer, despite admitting neither he nor Kelly had actually watched the six-part series in its entirety.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne said "it's up to the campaign organizer to turn donations off". When he gave an update, Kolfage did not say missing the goal was the reason for the refund.

Greenberg told the Associated Press: 'The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone'. Though the police spoke with him, he was not arrested as they were able to confirm there was no such warrant out, CNN further reported.

Since its release on 2January, a prosecutor has confirmed a number of people have contacted authorities and their claims would be followed up.

"He gets royalties from his songwriting", said Greenberg.

"There's women saying things, which is of course their prerogative, but there is no evidence that any of it happened", Greenberg said of the documentary.
