R.Kelly Accused Of Having A Sex Cult Harim In Chicago and Atlanta
From “Trapped in the Closet” to trapped in a cult? A new bombshell report accuses R. Kelly of holding women against their will in a sex “cult.”
Several parents tell BuzzFeed News that the 50-year-old hitmaker, whose real name is Robert Kelly, keeps six young women at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago. They allegedly are only allowed to use cell phones provided by Kelly, call him “daddy,” and must only eat, sleep or bathe when he tells them to.
Kelly also allegedly films their sexual encounters.
Three former members of the R&B singer’s entourage confirmed much of the allegations to BuzzFeed. Cheryl Mack, a personal assistant for Kelly from 2013 to 2014, said women falsely think they’re going to live lavish lifestyles.
“No. You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom,” Mack said. “[Kelly] is a master at mind control… He is a puppet master.”
BuzzFeed reports welfare checks by police in Illinois and Georgia found nothing warranting charges. All the women, who have not been named,
are of legal consenting age and the youngest, an 18-year-old singer, told Cook County police she was “fine and did not want to be bothered.”
However, Kelly has a long history of allegations about sexual misconduct. He was acquitted in 2008 on charges of making child pornography, despite videotape of an alleged encounter with a 14-year-old girl being shown to prosecutors.
The singer was also sued earlier this year for allegedly seducing a man’s wife. Kenny Bryant, a Mississippi sheriff’s deputy, filed a lawsuit claiming his spouse, Asia Childress, had an affair with the singer shortly after their 2012 wedding, when she attended Kelly’s concert. Childress has since filed for divorce despite reconcilation efforts as Bryant says he couldn’t compete with “R. Kelly’s continued sexual overtures to Childress.”
Kelly still frequently tours and releases music, which includes hits such as “Bump n’ Grind,” “Your Body’s Calling,” “Thoia Thoing,” “Ignition (Remix)” and the Grammy-winning “Space Jam” single “I Believe I Can Fly.”
