Official Calls for Criminal Investigation into R. Kelly's "Cult"

R. Kelly has unequivocally denied an explosive 'Buzzfeed' report he 'brainwashes' young women

A new call was raised for a criminal investigation into R. Kelly's behavior behind closed doors, but an investigation into the R&B star is not now in progress, officials said Friday.

If you recall, original reports surfaced from parents that Kellz was allegedly holding several young women against their will after promising a slew of them he would be advancing their musical careers.

A Georgia official is pressing his local district attorney's office to open a criminal investigation related to pop star R Kelly, local media has reported, even though police say there have been no "criminal allegations" and there will be no police investigation.

Should R. Kelly also be concerned about an investigation by Eaves? "Once the evaluation is complete, we will take the appropriate action".

Stock markets extend losses at open
The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index lost 1.06 percent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.17 percent. US crude fell 0.41 percent to $48.39 per barrel and Brent was last at $51.68, down 0.42 percent on the day.

New information learned and uncovered by law enforcement has severely raised the level of concern in the allegations of recording artist R. Kelly sexually exploiting and holding young girls and women against their will at his home in Johns Creek and elsewhere.

Representatives for Kelly, Eaves and the Johns Creek Police Department did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

We'll see if the D.A.'s office begs to differ... "We gave them everything (we) had". We 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, Byers told AJC.

John Eaves announced he will host a press conference Friday morning in Fulton County, where officials want to ban R. Kelly from performing a concert later this month. It is unlawful for the government to interfere with the right of its citizens to lawfully do business, and public servants should not target individual citizens for their own politically motivated purposes.

North Korea had responded to Trump's previous promise to unleash "fire and fury", with a threat to land a missile near the U.S. The market's main backstop in times of strain, gold, hit a two-month high of $1,282 an ounce amid the nervousness.

Kelly recently canceled shows in New Orleans, Dallas, Los Angeles and Baton Rouge, La.

The allegations center around a former Memphis resident.

Kelly has repeatedly denied the allegations and one of his alleged "captors", Jocelyn Savage, released a video coming to the singer's defense and saying that she's living with him by choice.
