Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations. I was sickened as a prosecutor".

But Foxx also said there's no active investigation of Kelly and launching one would require victims and witnesses. The Fulton County investigators "haven't confirmed or denied an investigation", he said, but they asked him Monday for contact information for witnesses.

She said she has been in contact with two concerned families of people who have had contact with Kelly in Cook County in the last couple of years.

While she noted that she can't take the decision to work with Kelly back, she said, "I can go forward and continue to support" victims of sexual assault.

Gerald Griggs, an Atlanta-based attorney who represents Savage and his wife, said he has been contacted by both the Fulton County district attorney's office in Atlanta and prosecutors in Chicago.

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. Timothy and Jonjelyn claim the singer is holding their daughter, Joycelyn Savage, against her will. Prosecutors had argued a videotape showed him engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13.

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.

But Georgia isn't the only jurisdiction where law enforcement officials are taking the allegations of predatory sexual behavior and pedophilia raised in the docuseries against R. Kelly seriously. "The song is called 'Do What U Want (With My Body)', I think it's clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time", she added.

A Cook County jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 counts of child pornography in 2008. The series accuses the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult. The efforts are looking to find other victims who would join a "united front" before a case is presented to a state attorney. He also said it was inappropriate for a state's attorney to characterize allegations she'd seen on TV, prior to charges or even an investigation.

"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".
