  • R. Kelly has faced these allegations for over two decades

"I was sickened as a prosecutor", she said.

If you or someone you know think they are being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) now for anonymous, confidential help, available 24/7.

"I hope and pray that the DA makes a move quick from out of Chicago or out of Atlanta because at this point, he may be leaving the country with these girls and whoever to try to flee from this situation", said Timothy Savage.

Referring to the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", Gaga continues:"What I am hearing about the allegations against R Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible".

Pressure is on authorities in Florida as well, after Angelo Clary, who has alleged that his daughter Azriel Clary is being held captive by Kelly, publicly pushed for them to follow Fulton County's lead. The R&B singer is allegedly holding Joycelyn Savage against her will, according to her family, though she denies the allegations.

The six-part series includes interviews with R. Kelly associates, relatives, and accusers - many of whom claim they were teenagers at the time they were abused, according to The New York Times.

Djokovic reaches the semifinal in Doha after another battle
He added that his immediate aim was to "be fresh" and then win as many matches "as I can" in Melbourne at the Australian Open . The pair have met on 8 previous occasions, with Djokovic now holding a 7-1 lead in terms of matches won advantage.

Griggs told FOX 5 News that in the past few days, very senior members of the DA's office have contacted Griggs regarding witness information in the case.

Griggs said the Fulton County district attorney's office reached out to him on Monday seeking contact information for witnesses. He also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation. Mason declined to comment to CNN.com. The incident in question stems from May 2018 when Mason texted Timothy Savage the following: "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to fucking kill you".

The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July past year. Prosecutors had argued a videotape showed him engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13.

In 2008, a Cook County jury found Kelly not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography charges.

Kelly rose from poverty on Chicago's South Side to become a star singer, songwriter and producer.
