Source – R. Kelly is holding at least five women as part of a sex “cult,” according to parents and some former members of his inner circle.
According to three former crew members and the parents of one 21-year-old woman, who was lured by Kelly’s promise to promote her singing career, the singer keeps the women at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago, where he controls all aspects of their lives, reported Buzzfeed.
“R. Kelly is the sweetest person you will ever want to meet,” said Asante McGee, a former member of his inner circle. “But Robert is the devil.”
Kelly takes the woman’s cell phones, requires them to call him “daddy,” films their sexual encounters with him and shows the videos to friends, physically and verbally punishes them for minor infractions and restricts their contact with family members, according to the report.
The parents of the 21-year-old woman, who met Kelly two years ago backstage at one of his concerts, said they haven’t seen their daughter since December and have received only two brief texts from her since then.
“It was as if she was brainwashed,” said the woman’s mother, who has shared her investigation of the singer with the FBI and police in two states. “[She] looked like a prisoner — it was horrible. I hugged her and hugged her, but she just kept saying she’s in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.”
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.
But all of the women staying at his rented home outside Atlanta or at his Chicago recording studio are of legal age.
The oldest of the women is 31, and former crew members say she’s the longtime best friend of the teen from the sex video and allegedly trains newcomers about Kelly’s sexual preferences.
That woman may have recently parted ways with Kelly, according to Buzzfeed sources.
The youngest is an 18-year-old from Florida who Kelly’s former crew members described as “his No. 1 girl.”
Now how is the news about this No. 1 girl going to sit with girls 2-6? What does it take to be a No. 1 girl? Does he give out sex points? Do you get preferential treatment for helping out around the house or making dinner for the other girls? And what won’t girls 2 through 6 do that No. 1 girl does?
Heres a question. How Is Kelly not in a jail somewhere handing out old books to inmates like Brooks from Shawshank Redemption? God, I loved that movie. When cute little Brooks wanted to slit that guy’s throat because he didn’t want to leave jail? Made me so sad.
Remember when R Kelley married Aaliyah when she was 15 or when he should have gone to jail for filming himself urinating on an underage girl? Only hope the girls are safe and if it’s consensual. I also Hope someone’s Dad runs this guy over. Not in that order.
