StarMetro Vancouver - - DAILY LIFE - Elahe Izadi Kelly’s his­tory of al­le­ga­tions at thes­tar.com/mu­sic

The fall­out from a highly rated Life­time do­cuseries de­tail­ing al­le­ga­tions against singer R. Kelly con­tin­ues this week, with a pros­e­cu­tor in Illi­nois now ask­ing for any po­ten­tial vic­tims or wit­nesses to come for­ward.

“There is noth­ing to be done to in­ves­ti­gate these al­le­ga­tions with­out the co-op­er­a­tion of both vic­tims and wit­nesses,” Cook County Dis­trict At­tor­ney Kim Foxx said at a news con­fer­ence Tues­day. “We can­not seek jus­tice with­out you.”

Mean­while, Lady Gaga broke her si­lence on R. Kelly on Wed­nes­day night, fi­nally ac­knowl­edg­ing the mount­ing al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct against the R&B singer and apol­o­giz­ing for her 2013 col­lab­o­ra­tion with him.

The A Star Is Born ac­tress wrote on Twit­ter that she stood be­hind Kelly’s ac­cusers and ex­plained that when she chose to work with the “Ig­ni­tion” singer, she was at a dark time in her life, as she strug­gled with the af­ter­math of her own sex­ual as­sault.
