Federal investigators have launched a nationwide investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against troubled singer R. Kelly, who is currently being held in a Cook County, Illinois jail for unpaid child support.

Kelly, 52, was taken into custody during a child support hearing at the Daley Center in Chicago on Wednesday, March 6. His next hearing is scheduled for March 13.

Also on Wednesday, the feds and representatives of the U.S. Attorney's Office interviewed an ex-employee in Atlanta as part of the ongoing case into allegations that have plagued Kelly for decades.

According to The Blast, Kash Howard and her attorney, Mawuli Mel Davis, met with investigators from the task force connected with the Department of Homeland Security for two hours at Davis' offices in Atlanta.

The Blast's sources say the investigation is focused on Kelly's live-in girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage, 23 (pictured right), and Azriel Clary, 21, who allegedly traveled over state lines with the singer in 2015 when she was 17.

The Blast was told the flight with Clary and Kelly on it was booked by Kelly's people, so the feds wanted to question Howard to see if she booked the flight.

After speaking with officials, Howard admitted, "This has been a very disturbing situation for me," but adds she’s been "supportive of the young ladies" and will continue to assist with the ongoing investigation.

Sources close to the investigation tell The Blast the family of Joycelyn Savage will also meet with the federal officials, and have a Thursday meeting scheduled.

Savage and Clary have denied allegations of abuse by Kelly. They continue to support him and have refused to meet with their families who allege they have been brainwashed by Kelly.

In an explosive interview with CBS This Morning anchorwoman Gayle King that aired on Wednesday, Kelly blamed the women's parents for selling their daughters to him.

    #PROCHOICE......let this mess alone. This mess is starting to look and sound too desperate. When someone "beats a case" prosecutors will seek out the devil to find another way to convict your azz. Ask any negro who has been found not guilty in a court of law. They will also break the law to set the railroad in motion. What you are witnessing is what the legal system is like for black men and black women in this country. #SHAMEONAMERICA!

    Jocelyn’s parents was deadt wrong for telling the world R. Kelly gave her herpes. She should turn around and sue them! I see why she don’t want nothing to do with them. All in they grown daughter business. They ain’t have no problem with her working with him but told her “you can’t be alone with him” smh the money well has run dry

  • DeeFromLA

    They are definitely in trouble. They are literally in limbo. He can't continue to take care of them because he can't afford it, they just destroyed any relationship they could've had with their parents after this interview. The smarter one has already attempted suicide in the past. The whole thing is a mess. They have no skills or education to do anything beyond laying on their backs. Shame

    sad part is, they don't even think about the fact that if he cared for them, genuinely, he would have assured, insisted even, that they at least continue their education. one of them dropped out of school to go follow him! i think he has done such a number on them that they are like any other victims of cults. the psychological damage runs deep. still, i pray their families get their 'girls' back and that with love, patience, and counseling, they come out of the fog that has been RK's hold on them all of these years, smh.

    The only thing I got from this interview with these girls is that they f'ing sick and tired of yawl worried about them, leave them alone, they are aware that they are sister wives and are ok with it and they need you, they daddy, they momma and sister to accept this and move on with yawl lives. That's all I got from those interviews.....so yawl need to let them be! Everything was good until yawl started bothering them.

  • Khaliah

    I wonder how the lady who bailed him out feels now? She spent all that money and he wound up back in jail anyway. Whenever you help somebody like Array--who's mentally or criminally messed up--you always get screwed because if/when they're in trouble, it's definitely for a reason. Now her business has been trashed on social media and she's out $100,000. I think she sees herself as Arra's savior, and once he understands how she stuck by him throughout all of this, he'll change his ways and they can have a life together. If that's the case, I hope she understands she's a little too old for Arra. Now maybe some of those fine young ladies at her daycare, but not her.

  • dontgetblocked

    Azriel's parents said in the documentary that they gave their daughter permission to live with R.Kelly in Chicago so he could mentor her. At one point, the other daughter was in Chicago with her.

    This business of older men and teenagers is nothing new. We all saw The Color Purple. Ask Tina how she was when Ike started messing with her and she already had a baby. Men have always liked and been with teenagers, especially girls who came from poor families and needed a provider. Loretta Lynn got married at 13. None of this is new. I have older relatives who married as teens as well.
