Last month, the Ignition Remix crooner, R Kelly, was accused of running a sex cult and holding women against their will. This alleged revelation was a nother blight in the RnB singer;s career after four of his concerts were cancelled due to poor ticket sales (people boycotted his concerts).
Even with all the allegations put forward in the space of a month, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard has announced his office is not currently investigating Kelly, according to Atlanta’s FOX 5.
Fulton County commission chairman John Eaves, who is currently running for mayor of Atlanta, called a press conference on Friday (August 11) to demand an investigation into the situation. He alleged the investigators who were working the case had found new information that raised some concerns.
“I’m going to stress to the [Fulton County] district attorney that a full investigation be done, because I believe questions should be answered,” he said.
Ahead of the conference, he also released a statement to the media. “Today, I am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the Johns Creek Police and follow every lead — no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice,” it read.
Despite his request, D.A. Howard revealed shortly after the conference that no criminal investigation into Kelly’s actions is being conducted at this time, but he will “examine the R. Kelly file to determine next steps.”
R Kelly also had this to say about the incident, “It’s your boy Kelz,” he said. “And I just wanted to let all of my fans out there know that despite all of the crap that y’all hearing. I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show. And believe me y’all. It’s a bunch of crap. Aight? I hope to see y’all there. I love y’all.”
