He and Jonjelyn Savage, who were featured in the Lifetime series, said their 23-year-old daughter Joycelyn has been brainwashed by R. Kelly, despite several videos she has made where she says she is fine. The series accuses the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult.

Both Kelly and Jocelyn deny she is being held against her will.

While there has not been a formal investigation launched yet by the Cook County State Attorney's Office, Foxx said she wants anyone with similar stories or information to contact her at 773-674-6492.

"I was sickened", she said.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx announced Tuesday afternoon during a press conference they are asking anyone who may be a victim or has information about a possible victim connected to the allegations against the singer in IL to come forward so they can investigate the claims.

Police said detectives are investigating the claims in the report.

But Foxx also said there's no active investigation of Kelly and launching one would require victims and witnesses.

Contact information for Russell could not be immediately found.

Griggs said he has also been contacted by prosecutors in Kelly's hometown of Chicago.

James Mason was cited in an incident report for threatening Joycelyn Savage's father, Timothy.

His albums continued to top charts while he was on trial for child pornography, and many of his hit songs, like "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", are still played widely.
