R. Kelly is now being accused of coerced his alleged “sex slave,” Joycelyn Savage, to lie to authorities if questioned about their relationship, and her family believes they have evidence to prove it … and they have turned it over to the feds.
TMZ reports … federal investigators in New York involved in the R. Kelly sex trafficking probe flew to Atlanta last week to meet with the Savage family … and received a quite a bit of digital evidence.
The Savages had lots of digital records that they say display shady tactics from both Kelly and folks who were working for him, including his ex-assistant
Cheryl Mack, who allegedly facilitated a meeting between Joycelyn and Kelly early on.
The records show Mack had arranged for Joycelyn to fly to Palm Springs to see R. Kelly in 2015. We’re told that meeting led to Joycelyn dropping everything and moving in with him, without her parents’ knowledge.
For the record, Joycelyn was 19 at the time this happened. She has been living with him since then.
There’s a lot more that the Savages handed over to officials, such as old emails and texts between them and Mack, as well as audio recordings of R. Kelly allegedly coercing her into lying about her situation if authorities ever talked to her.
In some of the other audio recordings obtained, you hear R. Kelly discussing how he’d conceal his relationship with Joycelyn … and in another, R. Kelly demanded she text him a statement that she herself was lying in the event she ever ratted him out.
The Savages also handed over social media messages they say came from R. Kelly’s camp through the years to show he had others working for him to procure young women.
The Savages’ attorney, Gerald Griggs, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York had no comment on these allegations … but R. Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg did, saying … “We are not going to continue to address anonymous rumors. From now on we are only going to deal with facts.”
