John Eaves, who is running for Mayor of Atlanta, has called for a full-scale investigation into R. Kelly and the recent allegations that he is the head of a sex cult that involves holding young women against their will and sexually exploiting them.
In a statement made at a press conference on Friday morning, Eaves said, “Today, I am asking District Attorney Paul Howard and his investigative officers and prosecutors to fully review the report of the John Creek Police and follow every lead — no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice.” Eaves cites new evidence as reasoning for opening the investigation.
Though Kelly has denied the allegations and called them, “a bunch of crap,” he has cancelled at least four of his concerts since the report from Buzzfeed News came to light.
Fulton County officials were attempting to ban the rapper from performing a concert there later this month. In a letter that the attorney for the board of commissioners wrote to Live Nation, they ask that the show be cancelled. “Based on allegations reported in various news media regarding the artist, the citizens of Fulton County have expressed their collective concerns that Live Nation would allow this artist to perform at a venue that is supported in part by taxpayers.” Despite their efforts, the show is scheduled to go on as planned.
Eaves is determined to bring justice to the situation. He said, “We will not allow our young girls and young women to be preyed upon by predators or anyone who aims to brainwash and strip them of their human dignity and their right to be free.”
