Future wants people to stop talking about R. Kelly

Foxx's call to gather information surrounding the embattled R&B singer stems from the six-part Lifetime series, Surviving R. Kelly, which took an in-depth look at the decades long accusations surrounding the singer, where several Black women told stories of the abuse and manipulation they experienced over the course of the past 25 years.

By some freaky coincidence (or not!) Donnel Russell was the name that appeared in a police report filed by the father of Joycelyn Savage, a young woman that helped form the basis of the "R. Kelly sex cult allegations", tabled past year.

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office has declined PEOPLE's request to comment, as did the Atlanta and John's Creek police departments.

On Tuesday, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx called for any R. Kelly sexual abuse victims to come forward, saying her office can not investigate without the cooperation of victims and witnesses.

But now the father of one of R Kelly's alleged victims Jocelyn Savage has reached out to her publicly on Instagram in an emotional video.

"There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses", Foxx told the cameras. "Allegations of domestic violence or sexual assault require someone to say what they have seen, heard or experienced". She has been in touch with families from the docu-series who are looking for their loved ones.

Apple shares drop after news of waning iPhone sales
In a note to investors, Apple CEO, Tim Cook , revealed that the company was revising its estimates for end-of-year income. On its website in China, Apple now advertises the iPhone XR for 4,399 yuan with the trade-in of an iPhone 7 Plus.

When asked if there's a "sense of fake outrage" from the public, Future responded.

"They really wanted to send that message that they stand in solidarity with those young ladies", said Kenyette Tisha Barnes, founder of the #MuteRKelly movement.

"Who makes their assessment of the evidence based on reality TV?" he said.

The woman, who uses the Twitter handle @pppermint, shared graphic details of Towkio allegedly coercing her into having sex with him.

"The recent allegations against entertainer R. Kelly in the recent Lifetime documentary series are deeply, deeply disturbing", she said. He was acquitted of engaging in sex acts with a 13-year-old in 2008.

This won't be the first time Kelly faced legal trouble regarding his alleged sexual misconduct. The report doesn't say what the relationship between Mason and Kelly is. The #MuteRKelly movement has been putting pressure on radio stations to stop playing Kelly's music in light of the sexual abuse allegations against him.
