Kelly holding women against their will in sex 'cult,' parents claim
R Kelly has been accused of starting a cult
17 July, 2017, 20:01
According to BuzzFeed, R. Kelly is holding women against their will in his Atlanta and Chicago homes. He also records their sexual encounters and replaces their phones with ones that can only contact Kelly or other approved numbers, according to the former associates. To learn more about the alleged cult, and the women who've experienced it, here are five fast facts you need to know.
T.S. also recalled the woman telling her that one time, Kelly sent a cab to pick up the women at his guest house and bring them to a club where he would meet them.
The 50-year-old Kelly was acquitted on 14 child pornography-related charges in 2008, after a video appeared to show him having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
J. and Tim have attempted to go to the police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and police in two states.
Kelly's former personal assistant Cheryl Mack described her former boss as "a master at mind control" and "a puppet master".
One set of parents have reportedly attempted to contact their daughter, who is now 21-years-old, for the past two years, but say she has rejected their approaches and claims she is a consenting relationship.
Police in IL and Georgia have found nothing illegal about the arrangements, following a series of "goodwill" checks on the women.
The young woman dropped out of college in Georgia a year ago after losing weight, cutting her hair short and dying it blonde to please Kelly - and her parents eventually tried to file a missing persons report but were unable since she was not technically missing.
R.Kelly has always been rumored to be a foul dude who preys on young girls (peep the creepy cover of Aaliyah'sAge Ain't Nothin But A Number album), but new allegations have come forth that signal bigger problems. For women now living with Kelly, if he were to hit them, they would have to be willing to report it to police, which seems unlikely. Jones claims that Kelly once held her up against a tree and hit her outside of a Subway shop when she was purportedly too friendly to a male cashier.
R Kelly's lawyer, Linda Mensch, responded to Buzzfeed News about the allegations in their article, stating: "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".
The mother of the same woman told BuzzFeed that her daughter "looked like a prisoner" when she last saw her, and acted as if she were "brainwashed" while continually professing her love for Kelly. "[She] looked like a prisoner - it was terrible", J. said. All the women in Kelly's circle are said to be of legal age. The BuzzFeed report details instances where the singer turned violent when women broke his rules.
None of the many attempts to reach R. Kelly by BuzzFeed were successful. "I suppose that is the price of fame". They've received just two text messages from their daughter in that time, one wishing she could spend Christmas with them and another reading, "Happy Mother's Day from me and Rob".
Both women in the story first met Kelly backstage at a concert; the then-17-year-old first encountered him when he pulled her onstage during the show.
"Like all of us", she added, "Mr. Kelly deserves a personal life".
