Surviving R. Kellyfeatures interviews with over 50 people, including several women who claim to have been victims of sexual misconduct by Kelly, and people from the artist's personal life who are speaking out with claims supporting those made by his alleged victims.

Kimberly M. Foxx, the state's attorney for Cook County, Illinois, held a news conference on Tuesday, and encouraged those with allegations against Kelly to come forward.

"There's not gonna be any physical evidence, no confirmatory evidence", he said.

Robert Sylvester Kelly, 52, just celebrated his birthday in his Chicago hometown when he was captured saying that he doesn't care "what is going on" in the world around him. "I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me", she said.

Her father says they haven't heard from her in about two years.

Apple Orders 10 Percent Production Cut for New iPhone Models
A new report from the Nikkei's Asian Review claims that Apple has asked its suppliers for 10% fewer new iPhones than expected. Apple took a direct hit from the issue and even lost its number one spot to Microsoft who in turn lost it to Amazon .

Another woman, who was born in Chicago but has since moved to Detroit, said that her incident with Kelly happened while at her grandmother's house on the South Side in the mid-'80s.

Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer, Steve Greenberg, dismissed the claims raised in the series in an interview with Billboard, casting them as "another round of stories" used to "fill reality TV time". Both Kelly and the girl denied that the video depicted them, and no assault charges were ever brought against Kelly as a result of the tape. The original deal for Kelly to pay for the property went for 10 years with a monthly payment of $22,927.41.

Protesters urged legal action against Kelly, and a boycott of Kelly's music, after women claimed they were sexually abused and mistreated by Kelly in the Lifetime documentary, Surviving R Kelly.

By some freaky coincidence (or not!) Donnel Russell was the name that appeared in a police report filed by the father of Joycelyn Savage, a young woman that helped form the basis of the "R. Kelly sex cult allegations", tabled previous year. Parents of the women involved said at the time that they had attempted to get their daughters out of Kelly's homes, accusing him of controlling their eating habits, how they engaged in sexual activity and ruling over when they take baths or sleep.

Even decades-old allegations could be trouble for Kelly.
