Illinois fairgrounds denies permit for R. Kelly show

Police officers reportedly visited R. Kelly's apartment on Friday after an anonymous caller claimed he was holding two women hostage.

The Illinois Department of Agriculture rejected the request for a concert in Springfield citing protests held outside the singer's Chicago studio which erupted following the airing of a Lifetime documentary series called Surviving R. Kelly which alleges sexual misconduct involving underage girls.

Since the release of the controversial docu-series on January 3, no charges have been filed; however, investigators are now looking into the multiple allegations of abuse.

Steve Greenberg said in an interview with The Associated Press that "the allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone".

The latest accusations echo similar ones against the singer dating back 25 years.

After State's Attorney Kim Foxx on Tuesday put out a public plea for victims to come forward, her office has received dozens of calls about Kelly, a spokeswoman told the Tribune this week.

He was previously been subjected to sexual impropriety allegations and, in 2008, stood trial on child pornography charges, of which he was acquitted.

At the same time, Greenberg said he didn't think Kelly's career would be hurt by the allegations.

Lifetime is part of A&E Networks, which is a joint venture between Hearst Communications and Walt Disney Co.

According to media reports, prosecutors in Georgia have contacted an attorney for an Atlanta-area couple who appeared in the documentary and accuse Kelly of brainwashing their daughter.
