TMZ has learned that law enforcement officials have a "person of interest" in mind, for a shooting threat that occurred during an advance screening of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly. "She essentially went up there and said, 'We have no evidence of a crime, but if someone would like to make something up, please call us'".

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.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Illinois' Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called for victims of the singer to come forward. Kelly, one of the top-selling recording artists of all time, has been hounded for years by allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls _ accusations he and his attorneys have long denied.

"I stand by anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault", she captioned the note.

We're told Kelly is over $80,000 in arrears, and an eviction lawsuit was filed against him in July by the owner of the building, Midwest Commercial Funding.

A military veteran and Buckeye State native, I've written for the likes of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle and the Detroit Free Press. Some were tied to Kelly's Chicago area home.

Another woman, who was born in Chicago but has since moved to Detroit, said that her incident with Kelly happened while at her grandmother's house on the South Side in the mid-'80s.

But now the father of one of R Kelly's alleged victims Jocelyn Savage has reached out to her publicly on Instagram in an emotional video.

Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time". During a January 9th interview with Power 106, the rapper was asked about the furor around Lifetime documentary about Kelly and said that people need to stop talking about him so he goes away. On Aug. 31, 1994, he married a 15 year old girl with no consent from the girl or her parents.

The case was referred to a local prosecutor, and a judge issued a warrant for Mason's arrest in July past year.

Surviving R Kelly will air in the United Kingdom on Crime & Investigation on Tuesday, February 5, at 10pm.
