ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - The lawyer for the family of 23-year-old Joycelyn Savage is responding to a statement put Wednesday by the attorney for musician R. Kelly.
The Savage family said they have been unable to reach Joycelyn Savage for some time after associating with the singer.
"We will not be quiet and we will not stop until our daughter comes home," Joycelyn’s father Timothy Savage previously told the Associated Press.
R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg released a statement Wednesday to FOX 5 Atlanta in response to the recent reports of investigations following a controversial mini-series which aired last week on the Lifetime network about the singer-songwriter.
"Mr. Kelly has done nothing. That's why no one has called the police. That's why there's no evidence of him doing anything wrong," Greenberg said.
Savage and her family were profiled in the recent docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly” which accused the singer of having sex with underage girls, being physically abusive, and running a sex cult.
Greenberg released the following in direct response Thursday:
“It should be respectfully stated that we requested two of R. Kelly’s previous managers and two of R. Kelly’s previous attorneys for the Savage family to see Joycelyn. This is the third attorney that we have pleaded with to allow the Savages to see Joycelyn. Why does it have to take two years and three attorneys to gain this inch? If you want to show that this is a consensual relationship, allow Joycelyn to see her parents. That will remove all doubt about whether the relationship is consensual or not. Our goal has always been to reunite this family. This is not a difficult request.”
Griggs earlier in the week told FOX 5 Atlanta the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office was investigating the new accusations raised by the series and they are cooperating fully.
"We're hoping the D.A. from Chicago and the D.A. from Georgia will step up and do their job," Savage’s father said at the time.
There has been no official word from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.
The Savage family has now set up a hotline along with Griggs for witnesses and victims to come forward at 678-744-3185.
