Famous R&B singer R. Kelly is being accused of running a secret and abusive sex cult by parents who say their daughters are victims of the star.
Two pairs of parents have accused R. Kelly of keeping their daughters as sexual slaves in his house as part of a cult. The parents have complained to the police, but after little action was taken, are instead turning to the media to tell their story. The claims have been corroborated by former members of the singer’s entourage.
“It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner — it was horrible,” said J., the mother of one cult member. “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.”
“It’s not about my daughter, per se. It’s about all the girls,” added another parent. “It’s about my daughter, and I understand that. But the abuse that my daughter is actually enduring, nobody should go through.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Parents of the girls and former members of R. Kelly’s entourage came forward to describe a creepy cult in which women have to ask permission to use the bathroom, and are taught the best way to sexually pleasure their “Daddy,” Buzzfeed News reported, after examining police reports and speaking with the families of the women.
Three other former members of Kelly’s entourage, Mack, Jones, and McGee, also came forward and seemed to corroborate the parents’ statements. Mack, his former personal assistant, alleges that as part of Kelly’s entourage, women are forced to ask permission to use the bathroom and for food. She described him as the ultimate “puppet master.”
Jones and McGee, who had sexual relationships with Kelly years past, allege that Kelly films his sexual activities with the women living in his house and then shows the videos to other men. All the women allege that he forces the women to call him “Daddy,” while he refers to them as his “babies.” Women are also told to wear tracksuits so other men can’t ogle them.
Kelly has had other accusations of sex offenses leveled at him previously, including rape, sex with an underage child and possession of child pornography.
