"That's why there's no evidence of him doing anything wrong", Greenberg told FOX 5's Jaclyn Schultz. Investigators have made contact with the family of Asante McGee and the attorney for the family of Jocelyn Savage, two of the women who were profiled in the film.

An attorney for Kelly did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

"We're hoping the D.A. from Chicago and the D.A. from Georgia will step up and do their job", said father Timothy Savage.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Cook County's State Attorney Kimberly Foxx called upon victims and witnesses to continue to come forward and cooperate with the investigation.

"Please come forward. There is nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses", she said.

Foxx said she has been "in contact with" people who have information related to claims in Cook County. Both are over the age of 18.

Foxx reiterated that there are dedicated professionals who are willing to help the survivors unpack their horrific experiences and urged victims to call the prosecutor's office at 773-674-6492.

The singer has been in the midst of a firestorm in the wake of the Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" that renewed interest in allegations Kelly has abused women and girls and is holding some of them against their will.

It's claimed that Russell told Timothy Savage that he "would be forced to provide information disproving Timothy" if he continued to support the documentary and that he would "ruin him, his reputation, business, and family because it would show him a liar". This comes after news that Kelly is under criminal investigation in Georgia, that his manager is also under investigation, and that an arrest warrant is out for his former manager. Mr. Henry James Mason, investigators said in a police report, threatened to harm and kill members of the Savage family in retaliation for attempting to contact daughter Joycelyn Savage.

He and Jonjelyn Savage, who were featured in the Lifetime series, said their 23-year-old daughter Joycelyn has been brainwashed by R. Kelly, despite several videos she has made where she says she is fine.
