Georgia District Attorney Says R. Kelly Not Under Investigation

Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves in

As TMZ reports, Fulton County Chairman John Eaves has stated that Georgia's Johns Creek police department has uncovered new evidence against R. Kelly, with the official now demanding an investigation.

According to Rolling Stone, Eaves urged police to "follow every lead-no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice".

He went on to say, "No one should be above the law, because of their income or their zip code". Byers admitted that the police department supplied the district attorney with their case file on Kelly accusations to "let them know what was going on due to the high profile nature of the incident and figured they would be getting calls about it".

A spokesman for the John's Creek Police Department said in an email to The Independent that "there is absolutely no new evidence against R Kelly".

Allegations of Kelly holding women against their will surfaced in a BuzzFeed story in July which said that the 50-year-old singer "held women against their will in a cult" at a house he was renting in Johns Creek.

Three former members of Kelly's inner circle told BuzzFeed News that he "controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records".

"As of this morning, I had a brief conversation with District Attorney, Paul Howard", Eaves said at a press conference announcing the developments.

The allegations emerged from parents of the young girls, with one of the alleged victims having since refuting the claims she was being held against her will, saying "I am not being brainwashed or anything like that".

"The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false and ill-motived", a spokesperson told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

It's been about a month since BuzzFeed published Jim DeRogatis' latest exposé on the allegedly unseemly behavior of R. Kelly.

Kelly has adamantly denied the allegations however, suggesting the rumors are a "bunch of crap".

Eaves has not read the contents of the investigative file, nor did he state the specifics of the new evidence, but he is encouraging the district attorney to launch a full investigation.
