The parents of one of R. Kelly's girlfriends plan a confrontation at his luxury Trump Tower apartment - if Chicago authorities back their plan.
Gerald Griggs - an attorney who represents Jocelyn Savage's family - tells TMZ they are actively working with prosecutors in Illinois to conduct a new welfare check on Jocelyn at Kelly's $2 million Trump Tower apartment.
Police conducted an initial welfare check on Jocelyn in January after Surviving R. Kelly aired on Lifetime.
At the time, police said they spoke with Jocelyn and Azriel Clary, who also lives in Kelly's apartment, and both women said they were there of their own free wills.
The Savages flew to Chicago in the hopes of reuniting with Jocelyn after Kelly was arrested last Friday on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of several minors.
Jocelyn, right, and Azriel attended R. Kelly's bond court hearing over the weekend. They told reporters they were there to support him.
Griggs says he doesn't think Chicago PD did a thorough job when they conducted the previous welfare check. They want police to conduct another welfare check with the family there to witness it.
The Savages hope they can somehow convince Jocelyn to leave Kelly and return home with them. They believe Jocelyn is being brainwashed and intimidated by Kelly.
Griggs says they also fear for their own safety, after R. Kelly's associates threatened them.
Griggs says they are asking the Cook County State's Attorney's Office to provide "backup" for the family at Kelly's apartment to protect them from Kelly's people.
Steven Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, tells TMZ, "Police in Chicago and Atlanta have both done wellness checks. Plus [Jocelyn] has been in court. Now this attorney is a psychiatrist. Gimme a break."
