The Savage family has now set up a hotline along with Griggs for witnesses and victims to come forward at 678-744-3185. "When you give things too much attention, they blow up." he said. "I was sickened as a prosecutor", she said.

Police said detectives are investigating the claims in the report. Foxx, a sexual assault survivor herself, said that she was left "sickened" after watching the series.

The doc comes 11 years after Kelly was infamously charged with 21 counts of child pornography in Chicago after a sex tape surfaced in which Kelly appears to be having sex with and urinating in the mouth of an underage girl.
