R. Kelly’s Alleged Sex Victims Encouraged to Help Build Criminal Case Against Singer

AceShowbiz -An Illinois State Attorney has appealed to alleged sex victims of R. Kelly to “come forward” and help her build a criminal case against the R&B veteran.

The “Ignition (Remix)” hitmaker has found himself under renewed scrutiny ever since the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary series began airing on America’s Lifetime network last week (ends January 04).

Highlighting the need for solid testimony to hold Kelly accountable in the eyes of the law, Foxx continued, “We cannot do anything related to these allegations without the cooperation of these victims.”

As a sexual assault survivor herself, she acknowledged how “incredibly daunting” it can be for those affected to publicly address such incidents, but insisted, “This isn’t one of those situations where it’s just forensics. We need actual witnesses and victims to have the courage to tell their stories.”

The State Attorney added of the various sex crime accusations, “I was sickened by the allegations. I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I was sickened as a prosecutor.”

However, Kelly’s Illinois attorney, Steve Greenberg, has slammed Foxx for issuing the public plea for help, maintaining his client has done nothing illegal.

“The idea that a prosecutor would solicit potential victims like a late-night personal injury attorney is offensive,” he ranted to The Chicago Tribune. “People know if they are a victim of a crime to contact the police… Nobody has come forward and said they were the victim of any misconduct by Mr. Kelly because nobody has been.”
