The singer lives in Trump Tower Chicago, which was searched by cops on Friday after a tip was called in accusing him of holding women hostage.

R Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive treatment of women and underage girls, including those that there uncovered in the recent documentary Surviving R Kelly. Both women - identified as Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary - told police they were at the residence voluntarily and nothing questionable was going on, despite both sets of parents' claims of brainwashing.

Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly, said in an interview on Friday that there was no evidence to support the accusations contained in the documentary, calling it a "for-profit hit piece full of falsities, full of mistakes".

According to reports, Kelly has not watched the documentary series and is said to be "disgusted" by the charges levelled against him.

"This is bigger than R. Kelly".

In the docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly," R. Kelly's relationship with the late, great singer Aaliyah was explored with his former bodyguard saying he witnessed the two get married. He also said that in the past women have "come on to" Kelly in the hopes that he would assist them in furthering their own careers, then became "disgruntled" when their own careers stalled and issued false allegations.

On the Lifetime series, a number of alleged victims claimed the R&B veteran had been using the location to hold girls and young women captive as part of a purported sex cult.

"We know what happened, and we know those things didn't happen", lawyer, Steven Greenberg, said. Lifetime did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
