There are indications that R.Kelly told his girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, to lie to the police about his sexual abuse allegations and this statement is credited to her family.

According to TMZ, federal investigators in charge of R.Kelly’s sexual assault investigations had flown to meet with Joycelyn Savage’s family in Atlanta. It is reported that their visit paid off as there were more than enough evidence to nail R.Kelly.

Major evidence was that of digital records that they say display shady tactics from both R. Kelly and folks who were working for him, including a woman named Cheryl Mack an ex-assistant who allegedly facilitated a meeting between Joycelyn and R. Kelly early on.

According to the new evidence, Cheryl Mack facilitated Joycelyn’s trip to visit R.Kelly when she was just 19 back in 2015. There are also old text messages and emails between R.Kelly and Joycelyn where he tried to teach her how to lie to the police so as to conceal their relationship.
