In the press conference, which took place on Monday, July 17, the family claimed that R. Kelly had created a sex cult for young girls and is holding them hostage. Savage's father, Timothy, believes his daughter is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and claims this is why she has not returned home to them.

Timothy then released a video he directed at singer R. Kelly in which he stated that he was going to pursue the singer legally. He stated that once he did all of Kelly's dirty laundry would be revealed to the world.

He stated at the press conference the day before that the family had evidence for their claims and that they were going to get their daughter back home to them.

The singer has denied that claims that The Savage family are making. He is deeply shocked by the picture they have painted of him and the damage they have caused for his celebrity image. His attorney made a statement saying that Kelly will work hard to prove that the accusations made about him are fake. Linda Mensch has stated that Kelly is determined to clear his name.

The case has taken a strange twist as a number of women have stepped forward and stated that they were held in a house by R. Kelly. In 2008 the singer was acquitted on 14 charges of child pornography after a video was released of him having sex with an underage girl.
