R. Kelly is about to raise even more eye brows.
Another woman has stepped forward with more creepy details about the R&B singer's alleged sex "cult," as concerned parents described it in a bombshell report published Monday, consisting of multiple young women who "just dote on him."
"It’s so f-cked up. They’re completely manipulated and brainwashed," the anonymous woman -- nicknamed "Kim" -- told Jezebel, who described her as a "sometime member of his entourage."
The public is already familiar with allegations that the 50-year-old singer is uncomfortably controlling of the young women living in his Atlanta and Chicago homes (although one of the women told TMZ she doesn't think she's being mistreated and denies the "cult" label that has been used to describe their lifestyle), but Kim offers even more disturbing claims about how he treats the women.
Kim, a white woman in her mid 20s, told the blog that she entered a sexual relationship with Kelly after meeting at one of his shows roughly a year ago and has flown out to spend time with him on 10 separate occasions. According to Jezebel, she offered travel itineraries for the trips, hotel receipts, and a photo she took of the singer asleep on a hotel couch to prove her connection to the singer. She said she wasn't aware the other young women she met while spending time with Kelly were living with him and thought they were free to go as they pleased, until reading the BuzzFeed article.
Here are seven of the juiciest excerpts from Jezebel's article about Kim.
1. R. Kelly takes controlling to another level
"'When we’re out, we’re not allowed to look at anyone,' she said. 'We have to keep our heads down. If we’re back in his studio sitting on the couches and he has friends across the room at the bar we can’t look at each other or communicate with each other...If we’re in an Uber and we chat up the driver we’re supposed to tell him this girl did this or that. He’s very controlling and manipulative. He likes to be in control.' She also confirmed BuzzFeed's reporting that the women are instructed to call Kelly "Daddy" while he refers to them as "babies."
2. Compliments aren't allowed
"Kelly also forbids the girls to compliment each other on their dresses, Kim said, because that’s too close to complimenting them on their figures. One day, she recalled, they were at lunch, sitting at a sidewalk table outside. A woman walked by whose dress Kim admired. 'I was looking at her and he kicked my chair because I was looking up. Just super possessive. It’s a strange kind of dynamic.'"
3. Kelly doesn't want the women to know each other
"We're not allowed to talk about anything. We can compliment shoes or nail polish or make small talk about the weather but we can’t talk about any personal details."
4. He demands blow jobs
"He never makes threats, but the girls are so eager to do whatever he wants. He’ll wake us out of a dead sleep and say to this girl, 'Suck my d-ck,' or to these two girls, 'Kiss on each other,' and immediately without thought they jump right to it. It’s just bizarre. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen before honestly."
5. The brainwashing
"It’s not non-consensual, I guess. But I don’t know if they even realize the situation they’re in is wrong."
6. He's obsessed with capturing everything on camera
"He records everything. Absolutely everything, including the two of them having sex. A lot of times he doesn’t have sex with the girls, he just likes to watch them on each other and records them."
7. Bizarre punishment involving nudity, bling and running laps
Kim said though she has never witnessed any violence, she does recall a very weird punishment for one of the girls when she didn't perform up to Kelly's standards.
"Kim said that she and the girl were instructed by Kelly to 'take off your clothes and act like you miss each other.' He got out his iPad and started filming, she said, but was dissatisfied by the 19-year-old’s performance. He told Kim to sit on the couch and took the 19-year-old into another room. Twenty minutes later, he called Kim in. Kim knocked in the proper way, then walked in to find the younger girl nude except for one of Kelly’s bigger pieces of jewelry, a heavy chain."
"He had his iPad recording and she was naked except for a big chain and she was running laps from one end of the room to the other. She was running laps around the room and apologizing. She kept saying, 'I’ve been bad, I’m sorry Daddy,' shit like that. And I’m standing there and she starts apologizing to me."
R. Kelly's representatives did not yet respond to TooFab's request for comment about these allegations.
His attorney previously released this statement: "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."
