Update: A rep for the singer tells 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.”
A report from BuzzFeed claims that R. Kelly is holding women against their will in what one parent described as a “cult. R-Kelly has had trouble with the law before, the infamous pee tape and secret marriage to Aaliayh.
The Report states, R-Kelly keeps six women in homes in Chicago and Atlanta, and “controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records.” Cheryl Mack, who worked as R. Kelly’s personal assistant beginning in 2013, called him a “master at mind control.”
Mack, [Kitti] Jones, and [Asante] McGee claim that women who live with Kelly, who he calls his “babies,” are required to call him “Daddy” and must ask his permission to leave the Chicago recording studio or their assigned rooms in the “guest house” Kelly rents near his own rented mansion in suburban Atlanta. A black SUV with a burly driver behind the wheel is almost always parked outside both locations. Kelly confiscates the women’s cell phones, they said, so they cannot contact their friends and family; he gives them new phones that they are only allowed to use to contact him or others with his permission. Kelly films his sexual activities, McGee and Jones said, and shows the videos to men in his circle.
