The federal investigation into R. Kelly is speaking to additional people associated with the singer, reaching out Kelly’s former stylist. TMZ reports that Department of Homeland Security agents have contacted celebrity stylist Kash Howard and want to schedule an interview after a video popped up on YouTube featuring Howard driving a car with two of the singer’s ex-girlfriends.

According to the site, the video features Halle Calhoun and Vonecia Andrews talking to a media outlet about their relationships with Kelly. Vonecia is seen “sobbing” throughout the video. Howard reportedly recorded the video last year.

Howard said in a statement to TMZ, “Mr. Kelly hired me as his personal Fashion Stylist where I provided wardrobe direction for concerts, album cover shoots, and special appearances. Our professional relationship along with all communication ceased in March of 2017.” She said she was only in the video becauise she was offering moral support to the two.

She added, “Mr. Kelly faces very disturbing charges. And while I have never personally witnessed any wrongdoing, I support those in search of the truth.”

Federal investigators have two investigations into the singer and are meeting with the parents of Joycelyn Savage’s parents, who claim that they are turning over “physical evidence.”

Kelly’s attorney said of the investitation, “That’s their job. But just because they are looking into something, certainly nobody should conclude that they have any evidence of any wrongdoing or a crime was committed.”
