Kelly Accused of Holding Women in a Cult, 'Against Their Will'

Kelly Accused of Holding Women in a Cult, 'Against Their Will'

R. Kelly has been accused of holding women in a cult-like setting in his homes. He was named as a witness in the 2008 child pornography case of Kelly, after receiving a videotape allegedly featuring R Kelly and a 14-year-old girl, which he turned over to police at the time. However, they claim a wellness check last December prompted by the parents revealed nothing was amiss at the Kelly residence. She's maintained that she's fine but the parents disagree. J. told DeRogatis that she knew of the sexual misconduct allegations against R. Kelly, but figured her daughter would be safe as long as she was around. Cheryl Mack, Kelly's former personal assistant, arranged the flight.

"In the back of our minds, we were thinking [my daughter] could be around him if I was with her", J said. "[She] looked like a prisoner - it was disgusting", she said of her daughter. She hoped Kelly would help her daughter's singing career.

"It was as if she was brainwashed", she told Buzzfeed.

The law is not on the side of the parents, though, as it says consenting adults may be involved in any relationship they want, and all of the women in Kelly's entourage are of legal age - 16 in Georgia and 17 in IL. Police say that people of the age of consent may participate in any kind of relationship they choose.

The texts allegedly read, "I hate Christmas has to be this way this year", and "Happy Mother's Day from me and Rob".

A 31-year-old "den mother" who "trained" newcomers on how Kelly liked to be pleasured sexually. Or when the singer was accused of scouring Chicago high schools looking for his next "pretty young thing"? All the women in Kelly's circle are said to be of legal age.




According to the report, Johns Creek police went to two homes, one on Creek Wind Court and another on Old Homestead Trail. If last year people were making fun of the singer because he had the arm of a young woman of 19 years, things seem much more serious in the light of the revelations of the site. McGee and Jones also said that Kelly films his sexual activities and shows the videos to the men in his inner circle. "But Robert is the devil". According Mack, Jones, and McGee, a total of six women now live in Kelly's homes, with the singer controlling everything from how they eat to how they engage in sexual encounters, which are recorded. Black SUVs are parked outside the "guest houses" to ensure no woman leaves.

Among the rules that are alleged in the Buzzfeed article are that women must give up their personal cell phones, ask permission to eat, ask permission to leave, and must abide by a strict dress code.

DeRogatis spoke to three sets of parents of the women allegedly imprisoned by Kelly, as well as three former associates of the singer, whose stories corroborate numerous same gruesome details. Kitti Jones asserts that he has maintained against a tree and slapped in the spring of 2013 in front of a fast food restaurant because it would have been too nice with a cashier.

"He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be".

Attorney Linda Mensch said: "It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down the guns; and embrace peace and love".

A lawyer for Kelly responded to the allegations, saying they were the "price of fame".
