Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said his office is reviewing a file of complaints against Kelly and said they received the file on Monday, Aug. 7 from the Johns Creek Police Dept. Howard said at the news conference that there is no investigation, and said he has not examined the file.

Eaves said if cops saw fit to hand something off to prosecutors, that suggests a possible felony took place.

Meanwhile, Eaves is holding a press conference Friday morning to explain why he is demanding an investigation, reports The venue is owned by Fulton County but managed by LiveNation. Wolf Creek Amphitheatre and Fulton County should not be vehicles through which R. Kelly can increase his notoriety, gloss over and normalize his behavior, and continue to profit and fund his crimes against women. In July, Buzzfeed reported that the singer allegedly preys upon young women in what was likened to a "sex cult".

"The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false and ill-motived", the statement continued. "And believe me y'all, it's a bunch of crap".

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.

It was only a few days a go that the Savage's parents had a press conference pleading to get their daughter back to them safe and sound.

During a press conference held on August 11, 2017, Eaves, who's running for mayor of Atlanta, told reporters, "A detailed local investigation by the John Creek Police Department has provided key information that we believe is enough evidence that gives the Fulton County District Attorney's Office all it needs to advance a criminal investigation of the well-known allegations".
