"I was sickened", she said.
Officials confirm they have received calls after Foxx's plea. The alleged incident went down in May 2018, and Timothy Savage made a report to police in Henry County.
According to a Georgia police report first obtained by CBS 46, Timothy Savage (pictured above, insert) says he received a series of harassing texts and phone calls from Don Russell because he participated in the docuseries Surviving R. Kelly where he spoke about his daughter Jocelyn.
The Savage family said they have been unable to reach Joycelyn Savage for some time after associating with the singer.
- The Chicago-based attorney for musician R. Kelly broke his silence Wednesday evening defending his client.
Kelly has not commented on the latest allegations made in the series but his attorney said the allegations are false, calling this another round of stories.

What's more, the Assistant will even auto-punctuate your messages now, so you don't have to dictate punctuation marks as well. While the platform will no doubt arrive on much more kit this year, we now know that will include some Sonos speakers.
Griggs told FOX 5 News that in the past few days, very senior members of the DA's office have contacted Griggs regarding witness information in the case.
Timothy Savage told an officer on January 3 that Don Russell had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air, according to a Henry County police report.
But Foxx also said there's no active investigation of Kelly and launching one would require victims and witnesses.
A BuzzFeed report published in 2017 from Chicago music critic Jim DeRogatis, who has investigated Kelly for more than a decade, renewed public interest in allegations against the musician. "I worked in this office for a number of years, including in 2008, and so the allegations were not new to me, but I think listening to survivors, and giving a platform to survivors to be able to tell their stories, was heartbreaking".
Foxx said she has been "in contact with" people who have information related to claims in Cook County.
Joycelyn Savage has denied being held against her will. "I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously".
