While Kelly was singing about not wanting to hurt anybody during his birthday party at the nightclub, activists gathered outside his West Side recording studio, marching for the young women they claim he sexually abused. She said he once held her in a hotel for three days against her will.
Taking the mic, the Grammy-winning singer belted out the opening lyrics of his 1994 hit, "Bump n' Grind", sans music before making a statement.
"We failed our community as black people".
R. Kelly's attorney, Stephen Greenberg, called Foxx's request absurd.
Atlanta attorney Gerald Griggs represents the family of 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage, whose family was profiled in the series. One man pulled his hood up over his head before he entered the building, which appeared to be filled with a crowd. "We're giving it too much attention".
"Y'all m*****f****** don't know it's my m*****f****** birthday and I don't give a f*** what's going on tonight", Kelly said on the mic to a thunderous applause, though it was later reported that police crashed the party under the false assumption that there was a warrant out for his arrest. They watched the Lifetime documentary series together. Savage said he and his wife were involved with Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series. I was sickened as a mother.
The calls came a day after state's attorney Kim Foxx made a plea to any alleged victim of the singer to come forward.
"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety". Additionally, they are said to be hiring lawyers to try and stop their parents from trying to reclaim them and get them out of R. Kellys home.
Rather, he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008.
The allegations of different forms of sex abuse have long since existed, as he was accused of allegedly illegally marrying the late singer Aaliyah.
The Thursday club outing mirrors Kelly's actions after his May concert at UIC was canceled. He said Foxx shouldn't be soliciting cases.
Gaga and the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer performed together on several TV appearances, while Jay Z and Kelly released a couple duet albums together, 2002's "Best of Both Worlds" and 2004's "Unfinished Business".
