R. Kelly stepped out since the release of Surviving R. Kelly. He was spotted Wednesday night at V75, a Chicago nightclub, where he performed several of his songs.
Media Take Out reported, less than an hour after the club opened it was so packed, they had to turn people away.
The club was filled to capacity with R. Kelly’s fans showing him support after the devastating allegations in the Lifetime documentary.
Kelly turned 52-years-old on Tuesday; during last night’s performances, he yelled, “Y’all motherf…..s don’t know. It’s my motherf…ing birthday and I don’t give a f… what’s going on tonight.”

People on social media called the police to the venue, after seeing how successful the event was and the club shut down early.
On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that the District Attorney’s Office of Fulton County, Georgia, are currently “conducting interviews” regarding the accusations featured on Surviving R. Kelly while the lawyer of one of Kelly’s alleged victims parents told the Times that senior investigators from the D.A.’s office recently contacted him about the allegations.
The state’s attorney for Cook County, Kimberly M. Foxx held a news conference on Tuesday and encouraged those with allegations against Kelly to come forward.
See the video below:
“In order to have an investigation … we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forth with whatever information that they have,” Foxx said. “I’m here today to encourage victims of sexual assault or domestic violence related to these allegations to please get in touch with our office… There’s nothing that can be done to investigate these allegations without the cooperation of both victims and witnesses. We cannot seek justice without you.”
Surviving R. Kelly features interviews with over 50 people, including several women who claim to have been victims of sexual misconduct by Kelly, and people from his personal life who are speaking out with claims supporting those made by his alleged victims.
