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. While the lawyer for the parents of one of Kelly's alleged victims told the Times that senior investigators from the D.A.'s office recently contacted him about the allegations, the office itself has declined to comment on whether they are looking into the claims.

Sources connected to the alleged victims of R. Kelly tell The Blast there is a rumor circulating that the singer is preparing to leave the United States, and we are told Africa has been mentioned as one of the places he may seek solace. The Savages, who live in Stockbridge, just south of Atlanta, appeared in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series. Mason allegedly threatened to kill Joycelyn Savage father.

Investigators' quieries come as the Lifetime series adds a new dimension to the sexual abuse allegations Kelly has faced for the better part of his almost 30-year career.

The hip-hop and R&B community continues to speak out against R. Kelly. Authorities in IL and Georgia are reportedly interested in opening investigations into mental and physical abuse accusations in the respective states.

"In order to have an investigation we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forward with information", Foxx said.

Broncos hire Vic Fangio: Instant analysis of Denver's new head coach
He's built dominant defenses in different eras, successfully adapting to changes in personnel, philosophies and style. A year ago when Matt Nagy was hired as head coach a big question was whether or not Vic Fangio would have stayed.

R. Kelly and his legal team have denied all allegations against him. "I'm sickened as a prosecutor", she said.

Kelly attorney Steve Greenberg slammed Foxx's decision to hold a press conference in a statement to the Chicago Tribune.

WMAQ-TV reported that Foxx's office said Wednesday it has received calls after Foxx asked the public to come forward with information about potential victims of the singer.

"I was sickened by the allegations". Prosecutors had argued a videotape showed him engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13. Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008.

Kelly won a Grammy in 1997 for "I Believe I Can Fly", and is known for such raunchy hits as "Bump N' Grind" and "Ignition".
