R. Kelly is already on the defensive!
As we reported, on Monday, BuzzFeed News published an EXPLOSIVE report claiming the singer was the “puppet master” behind an abusive sex cult where six young women are under his control at his Atlanta and Chicago homes.
Although the 50-year-old has already released a statement asking the media to respect his “personal life,” the musician and his rep are now confronting the rumors head-on.
In a statement given to TMZ:
“Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”
The website also confirms cops in George and Illinois did a welfare check on one of the alleged victims who is currently not harmed. However, she told authorities she “did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people.”
Such a horrific story!
