R Kelly is being criminally investigated over sexual misconduct claims in the United States (US) state of Georgia. This follows the release of Lifetime’s docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” last week.

TMZ reports that investigators have been reaching out to a number of the women who spoke out against Kelly in the TV documentary, including Asante McGee, who managed to escape the singer’s home where she previously claimed he would keep a group of females under close watch and control every aspect of their lives.

Kelly has denied the reports and is threatening to sue everyone involved.
