A young woman has broken her anonymity to step forward as the latest girl to claim she was groomed and molested by the disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly.
Her harrowing story below…
With the support of many who claim to have proof that her story is true, Ms. Jerhonda Johnson alleges that she met Kelly when was a teen attending the court cases he faced for 14 counts of child pornography.
She claims that it wasn’t long before he initiated a sexual relationship with her knowing she was underage and, following their “split”, promised to give her money in exchange for her silence.
Today, she has decided to bare all.
Several individuals with firsthand knowledge of the situation have supported Pace’s claims. Additionally, BuzzFeed News reviewed signed legal documents, drafts of settlements between Kelly and Pace, correspondence between Pace and the attorneys involved, a polygraph test performed at the request of her attorney regarding her relationship with Kelly, a probate court document opening an estate for Pace as the result of a civil settlement, and a subsequent payment made by Kelly’s management company to Pace.
Pace’s story is different than previously reported accounts because she was underage when she and Kelly began a sexual relationship. Pace says she is talking now — and breaking a signed nondisclosure agreement — because she is concerned about women still living with Kelly in what police have been told is an abusive “cult,”. Pace says she’s particularly concerned about a friend she brought into Kelly’s circle when they were both teenagers and who multiple sources say still lives with Kelly.
If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that’s what I will do. I didn’t have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He’s brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson.I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped.
Enraged, reps for Kelly had this to say…
The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career. Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation.
