In a story released by Buzzfeed, R’ Kelly has been reported to the Police by parents of daughters who claim the R&B legend is running an abusive sex cult of young women who are kept in some of his homes in Atlanta.
According to one accusation, after meeting a 19 year old singer at a concert in Atlanta, Kelly invited the singer to his Fantasy Springs Resort Casino concert in California on May 23, 2015. Two years later and the singer still hasnt returned home and refuses to claim otherwise despite her parents telling the police that she is being held against her will.
Three of R. Kelly’s former associates — Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee – have given details confirming the plight of the girls under R. Kelly’s wing. According to Mack who was R. Kelly’s assistant from 2013, every aspect of the girls’ lives is dictated to by Kelly including when they have to eat and use the bathroom. Mack claims that Kelly is the ultimate puppet master.
When Police in Georgia conducted a search on the properties as well as to verify the well being of the girls, everything seemed fine and one of the girls is reported to have told police that everything was fine and they need to stop bothering her.
Linda Mensch who represents R. Kelly as a lawyer in Chicago released the following statement, “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,” Mensch wrote. “He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be. It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down the guns; and embrace peace and love. I suppose that is the price of fame. Like all of us, Mr. Kelly deserves a personal life. Please respect that.”
Born and raised on the South Side, Robert S. Kelly, is the most successful soul or R&B performer from Chicago since the great Curtis Mayfield. In 1994, Kelly grabbed headlines with reports that he had married the 15-year-old Aaliyah. But the artists never confirmed the stories, and spokesmen for Kelly disputed the age difference.
Despite the scandals of the mid-’90s and the fact that he now has a family of his own, sources said that Kelly continues to seek out underage females, and his behavior has become the subject of widespread rumor in the music industry.Sources and former girlfriends describe Kelly as a “manipulator” in his dealings with underage girls.
