R. Kelly accused of holding women in a multi-state sex cult
R. Kelly has a disturbingly long record of sexual abuse allegations.
From his illegal marriage to the late Aaliyah to the infamous video of him allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl, the R&B icon’s history is littered with predatory incidents. Now, the veteran journalist who first broke the news of that sex tape, Jim DeRogatis, has reported another horrific story claiming Kelly is imprisoning women in multiple states in a sort of sex cult. DeRogatis’ report for Buzzfeed focuses on two Georgia parents’ quest to free their 19-year-old daughter from Kelly’s clutches. The woman and her mother met the singer backstage at a show in Atlanta in hopes of advancing her own singing and dancing career. However, her parents now say they haven’t seen her since December of 2016 and have been reaching out to the FBI in hopes of finding legal recourse to save their daughter. 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.” Part of the accusation involves Kelly giving the 19-year-old — one of six women he reportedly keeps in houses outside Atlanta and Chicago — a new cellphone which he controls, ordering her only to communicate with him and select others with his permission.
