According to Rolling Stone, Eaves urged police to "follow every lead-no matter where it leads, or who it implicates, and bring those persons to swift justice".
In case you haven't been keeping up with the dark and twisted life of R&B's icon, BuzzFeed News published a tell-all story alleging Kelly of keeping more than six women "against their will" in his two guest homes in both Georgia and Chicago. Now, today, the Board's chairman tries again to interfere with the concert and assist others in that effort by calling for an investigation based on a supposed file - the contents of which he has not even seen, and after proper authorities already stated just last week that they looked into the allegations and launched no investigation.
R. Kelly is set to play a concert at FedExForum in Memphis on August 27, though several other dates in the tour have been cancelled. Live Nation said the concert will take place as scheduled, but has declined further comment.
"I believe that it's important for me as chairman of Fulton County to speak out and support this investigation", Eaves said.
During the press conference, Eaves added that the state of Georgia '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'.
In a press conference Friday (Aug. 11), John Eaves revealed there has been new evidence uncovered by law enforcement, and an investigative file has been handed over to the district attorney.
If you recall, original reports surfaced from parents that Kellz was allegedly holding several young women against their will after promising a slew of them he would be advancing their musical careers.
Buzzfeed News reports that county commissioners have also tried to cancel R. Kelly's upcoming Atlanta show, in the wake of allegations that the singer has kept girls against their will.
