"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime docuseries are deeply, deeply disturbing", Foxx said during a news conference on Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, in Chicago.

In 2000, the Sun-Times was the first major media outlet to report on allegations of inappropriate behavior involving Kelly and underage girls.

Her office covers Chicago where Kelly has a home. Also, she requested that anyone who was a victim of the singer to come forward.

Chicago police officers responded to a South Side nightclub where singer R. Kelly was celebrating his 52nd birthday Wednesday night, amid renewed focus on sexual abuse allegations against the R&B superstar.

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses", she said.

It is unclear if investigators have had contact with Kelly or his attorneys.

Timothy and his wife Joycelyn have long maintained that their daughter is being held against her will by Kelly, and the singer forced the young woman to cut off family contact. While Foxx said that her office has not been in contact with Fulton County, they are willing to share any "relevant information" between their offices.

R. Kelly is getting a lot of unflattering headlines this month after Lifetime's docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly" was released.

"I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously", she wrote in part.

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.

According to a marriage certificate that was uncovered in the '90s, Kelly had secretly married the Detroit singer Aaliyah Haughton when she was just 15. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. A spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office said both women have been missing for three to four years. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued past year.
