  • R. Kelly

On Tuesday, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called for any R. Kelly sexual abuse victims to come forward, saying her office can not investigate without the cooperation of victims and witnesses.

Lady Gaga is speaking out about working with R. Kelly, who has been back in the headlines following the airing of Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, which details the sexual abuse allegations against the singer.

There has been no official word from the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.

Foxx said that after watching the series herself, "I was sickened by the allegations". The family hopes that a charge will be levied against Kelly to keep him from leaving the United States with some of his alleged "sex cult" victims.

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses", Foxx said.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called the allegations made against Kelly in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary "deeply, deeply disturbing" during a press conference on Tuesday, WGN-TV reports.

One woman, who's originally from Georgia, said that Kelly engaged in inappropriate conduct with her at his rented warehouse/studio space in 2002.

Djokovic crashes out of Qatar Open
Spaniard, Roberto Bautista Agut yesterday in Doha beat world number one, Novak Djokovic , in the semi-finals of the Qatar Open. The shock result breaks a run of five consecutive finals reached by Djokovic, who had also won 13 matches in a row in Doha .

R. Kelly's attorney, Stephen Greenberg, called Foxx's request absurd. Some were tied to Kelly's Chicago area home. "That's why there's no evidence of him doing anything wrong", Greenberg told FOX 5's Jaclyn Schultz. There are no photos of him with these women.

The show included interviews of 50 individuals, including women who claimed to have suffered from Kelly's alleged mental, physical and sexual abuse.

According to a marriage certificate that was uncovered in the '90s, Kelly had secretly married the Detroit singer Aaliyah Haughton when she was just 15. The "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number" singer was acquitted on all charges.

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions.

Kelly's award winning career has been shadowed by sexual misconduct allegations for more than two decades.

Nearly a year later, Kelly was arrested in Florida after authorities found digital images of the singer involved in sex acts with an underage girl, but those charges were dropped over a dispute on the search warrant.
