Specifically, authorities are reportedly looking to speak with Asante McGee, who claimed to have fled the singer’s home, and Jocelyn Savage, whose parents say the 23-year-old was brainwashed by the singer and has been held captive with him since she was 19.

Though prosecutors haven’t confirmed whether a criminal investigation’s underway, TMZ reported that investigators were searching for contact information for women who lived in Kelly’s Georgia home or have knowledge of anything that might’ve transpired there.

Georgia—specifically Johns Creek—is one of two locations where Kelly’s accused of holding women against their will. The “I Wish” singer was also accused of imprisoning sex slaves in his Chicago residence.

Law enforcement was reportedly inundated with calls following the conclusion of “Surviving R. Kelly,” which concluded this weekend.

R. Kelly hasn’t publically commented on “Surviving R. Kelly.” However, TMZ reported this week that his team has created a website and Facebook page which will be aimed at discrediting his many accusers.

A source told the tabloid, “He’s going to sue everybody who had anything to do with this.”
