Chicago singer R. Kelly‘s girlfriend Joycelyn Savage has a family not willing to give up. New reports claim the aspiring musician’s family believes she lied to police about their relationship and have handed over evidence to feds.

According to reports, the Savage family has digital proof showing Kelly and his team used tactics to ultimately turn Joycelyn into a sex slave.

We’re told the Savages had lots of digital records that they say display shady tactics from both R. Kelly and folks who were working for him, including a woman named Cheryl Mack … an ex-assistant who allegedly facilitated a meeting between Joycelyn and R. Kelly early on. According to our sources, the records show Mack had arranged for Joycelyn to fly to Palm Springs to see R. Kelly in 2015. We’re told that meeting led to Joycelyn dropping everything and moving in with him, without her parents’ knowledge. (TMZ)

Outside of the Savage drama, Kells’ legal team couldn’t convince a judge Wednesday to lower his child support payments.

Kelly’s publicist, Darryll Johnson, said Kelly has no assets to sell, not even his home at Trump Tower, because he rents the condo, and paid rent in advance several years ago. Johnson said he and Kelly’s attorneys are representing him for free. Wednesday’s hearing on the child support payments was sealed to the public, but Kelly’s attorneys confirmed afterward that there would be no change in those payments, and the next hearing has been scheduled for May 8.

Despite the outcome, Kelly is reportedly sticking to his music grind and putting new tunes together.

Johnson said Kelly is still recording music, even though he was dropped by his record label in January. “He’s recording every day. He has a studio in his home, so he’s always recording,” Johnson said. “All he does is sing; sing and record all day, and when he’s not doing that, he’s shooting basketball.” (Chicago CBS Local)

A few days ago, buzz developed about Kelly’s alleged child support payment issues having a direct connection to his ex-wife.

Sources close to R. Kelly tell us the singer was absolutely lashing out at Drea Kelly when he quit writing child support checks … a move that ultimately landed him in Cook County jail. We’re told Kelly feels like he tried to maintain a relationship with his 3 kids, but he blames Drea for ruining any chance of that. He’s said he thinks she brainwashed them. As we’ve reported … Kelly was supposed to be paying Drea $20,833 per month as of January 2009 — but he fell way off schedule last year. (TMZ)
