  • R. Kelly evicted from Near West Side recording studio that doubled as residence

Surviving R Kelly documented the stories of survivors who say they experienced sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of Kelly since 1998. The women said they were not being held hostage and the officers left without making any arrests.

The Cook County state's attorney's office passed along to police a tip from an out-of-state caller saying two women were being held against their will at Kelly's Trump Tower residence, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Tribune.

"We know what happened, and we know those things didn't happen", the attorney, Steven Greenberg, said in a pre-taped interview that aired on Friday's episode of Good Morning America.

This ban is significant considering the fact that Kelly has been celebrated as one of the biggest artists to rise from the city.

Lawyer Steve Greenberg refuted all claims against the singer, despite admitting neither he nor Kelly had actually watched the six-part series in its entirety.

When asked if Kelly denies having a sexual relationship with someone under the age of consent, Greenberg replied, "Yes, he absolutely does".

Prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia are also investigating allegations made in Surviving R Kelly. Kelly's estranged daughter, Joann Kelly, whose stage name is Buku Abi, called him a "monster" in a post on Instagram on Thursday, though she did not make any allegations.

Since the release of the controversial docu-series on January 3, no charges have been filed; however, investigators are now looking into the multiple allegations of abuse. But he said that was not necessary to determine that they lied, noting that none of them ever went to police or presented anyone with evidence of physical abuse.

Greenberg has said that the documentary proved nothing.
