When it comes to the many celebs who have begun to distance themselves from Kelly since the release of the series, Greenberg took aim at Lady Gaga specifically.

Radio play for R. Kelly songs has plummeted since last week's airing of the Lifetime TV documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, but streaming of his music soared. "I think Mr. Kelly should live his life however he wants to live his life", he said. "Now she wants an Academy Award, so now all of a sudden he's some awful person", he said. "I haven't heard from anyone because there's no facts to back up these claims", Greenberg said.

"The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone".

Activists from the #TimesUp and #MuteRKelly movements have seized on the renewed attention to call for fans and music industry partners to cut ties with Kelly and some past collaborators are apologizing for having worked with him. It alleged that the singer was holding women against their will and running a "sex cult".

As you may know, R. Kelly allegedly was married to a 15-year-old Aaliyah when he was 27-years-old, and Kelly also had a child pornography charge for which he was inevitably exonerated. Foxx's office said in a brief statement Friday that people have contacted prosecutors and that authorities are "following up on these calls".

The lawyer claimed women have "come on to" Kelly in the hopes of kick-starting their own careers, only to become "disgruntled" when their plans didn't pan out as planned.

R. Kelly's recently revived legal troubles, which stem from decades of sexual misconduct allegations, are now impacting his ability to work.

"There's women saying things, which is of course their prerogative, but there is no evidence that any of it happened", Greenberg said of the documentary.
