R. Kelly is holding young women against their will in an abusive sex cult, this according to some parents who claim he’s taken their daughters away from them!
Concerned family members have spoken to BuzzFeed News, sharing details about the alleged brainwashing. Former members of the artist’s (real name Robert Kelly) inner circle have also opened up about similar stories.
The 50-year-old, who was once accused and went to trial over reportedly having inappropriate relations with a 14-year-old, is said to have six young women living with him in his Atlanta and Chicago homes. According to the report, he controls their every move. They are told what to eat, how to dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and exactly how he they are to engage in sexual encounters with him.
He’s said to record those encounters.
Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee (all of whom reportedly left his cult) allege he is a master manipulator, with Cheryl even saying:
“No. You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom. ├óΓé¼┬ª [Kelly] is a master at mind control. … He is a puppet master.”
Cheryl and Kitti also add the R&B singer has turned to physical and verbal abuse if any of the girls break his “rules.”
Still, all the women said to be in the Trapped In The Closet singer’s circle are of consenting age, with the youngest being 18 years old. Welfare checks by police in Illinois and Georgia didn’t come up with anything that would lead to charges. One of the aspiring singers living with him even told authorities she was “fine and did not want to be bothered.”
R. Kelly hasn’t personally taken to any social media about these new allegations, though his rep Linda Mensch shared:
“We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life. He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be. 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. I suppose that is the price of fame. Like all of us, Mr. Kelly deserves a personal life. Please respect that.”
