A press conference about the new federal charges filed against R Kelly on Friday turned into a tense confrontation between the parents of the singer's girlfriend and his crisis manager.
It all happened after Jocelyn Savage cut off Tim Darrell Johnson's father when he spoke to reporters and asked aloud: & Where is my daughter? Where is she? Answer that question! & # 39;
Johnson refused to answer the question and instead told the sad family: & I am a crisis manager. I'm not a babysitter. & # 39;
Kelly was arrested Thursday night in Chicago after federal prosecutors filed a thirteen-count indictment claiming that the singer filmed himself while raping underage girls and committing a number of other sexual crimes over the past 20 years.
A five-count indictment was also filed in New York by federal prosecutors in the eastern district of the state, accusing the singer of having committed a sex ring.

Answers: & # 39; Where is my daughter? Where is she? Answer that question! & # 39; asked her father Timothy (above), who believes the young woman was brainwashed by Kelly
The Savages have desperately tried to reunite with their daughter, whom they claim has been brainwashed by the singer, a claim that Jocelyn himself has denied in several interviews.
Jocelyn left to meet him backstage shortly after Kelly when she was only 17 years old.
Timothy and his wife Jonelyn believe that she is being held captive by the singer, despite the fact that their daughter has denied this claim.
Johnson ignored Timothy after that first interruption, and ended the remark he made before Jocelyn's father approached him during the event.
Then he turned to the man and said, "First of all, I have nothing to do with your daughter." I am not separated from any camp. I am a contract employee who has been hired to do a job. I don't work for Mr. Kelly, I work for (the singer's lawyer) Steven Greenberg. I haven't paid a cent yet, I carry my own weight. & # 39;
He then noted that he & # 39; sympathy & # 39; had for the family and let them know that he had nothing & # 39; harmful & # 39; had seen in the six times he had seen the young woman.
& # 39; Our daughter's life is in danger & # 39 ;, Jocelyn's father replied.
& # 39; We want to make sure it is healthy, healthy and good. & # 39;
The indictment on Friday in the eastern district of New York includes allegations of extortion, kidnapping, forced labor, and sexual exploitation of a child.
It says that Kelly and his managers, bodyguards and other assistants have chosen women and girls at concerts and other locations and have arranged that they are traveling to see Kelly.
The allegations that led to federal charges refer to behaviors that date back to 1999 according to the charge.
Kelly & # 39; s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, said that the federal indictments are largely the same & # 39; appear to be like indictment of state exams Kelly is currently dealing with and the costs of child pornography for which he was acquitted in 2008.
& # 39; Most if not all alleged behaviors are decades old & # 39 ;, Greenberg wrote in a statement on Twitter.

Kelly, 52, was arrested while moving his dog on Thursday evening by police detectives in New York and inspectors from the Department of Homeland Security.
He is expected to appear before a judge in Chicago later on Friday and will be summoned to New York at a later date.
Last month the singer pleaded not guilty of 11 new offenses of assault and abuse after public prosecutors filed charges against him.
Kelly has denied fierce allegations of abuse for decades.
& # 39; He and his lawyers look forward to his day in the courtroom, to the truth that comes out and to his justification of what has been an unprecedented attack by others on their own personal gain, & # 39; said Greenberg.
The costs of the Cook County include alleged abuse of a victim between the ages of 13 and 16 years.
The accusations focus on someone who only as J.P. is identified and the crimes are said to have occurred between May 2009 and January 2010.
Kelly can risk up to 30 years in prison if he is convicted of those charges.
In February, Kelly pleaded not guilty of allegations that he had sexually assaulted three teenage girls and a fourth woman.
These charges come in the aftermath of seven women speaking out against the singer in the Lifetime documentary Surviving R Kelly, including Stephanie & # 39; Sparkle & # 39; Edwards.
Sparkle, a former Kelly protegee who records with the Grammy-winning artist, was previously the star witness at Kelly & # 39; s trial in 2008, where she testified that a rape tape showed the singer sexually assaulting her underage cousin.
In that case, Kelly was eventually acquitted.
