R. Kelly is to face more turmoil, trials and tribulations this year after a documentary, set to air tonight, is to lift the lid on his alleged abuse of African-American children and teens.
Good news for his concerned critics below…
Accused of molesting the late singer Aaliyah, Kelly’s legacy has been irreparably damaged by his allegedly perverse nature and the little that has been done by the music industry and authority to protect the girls he is said to have targeted, raped and groomed.
Tonight, he is to learn that one of his close friends is to bare all on what she witnessed during her time with him.
The allegation – the latest in a string of allegations of the sexual abuse of young women by Kelly – was made, referring to another woman, by former girlfriend Kitti Jones.
During two years of dating Kelly from 2011 onwards, Jones, 34, says she was groomed by him, and forced to have sex with him and others at least 10 times in a “sex dungeon”. She said: “I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words. I saw that she was dressed like me, that she was saying the things I’d say and her mannerisms were like mine. That’s when it clicked in my head that he had been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets.”
Kitti’s decision to support his victims by speaking out comes after the parents’ of a number of his new girlfriends cried out for help after learning that they may have been “enlisted” to join his sex cult.
The documentary, named ‘R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes’ airs tonight on BBC3.
