R. Kelly ‘cult’ claims and past controversies
Singer R. Kelly is accused of keeping women in a “cult.” Here is a look back at the Grammy-winner of the recent controversies
R. Kelly’s former girlfriend alleged the singer, who has been accused of sexual abuse in the past, gave a 14-year-old girl to be his “sex pet.”
Kitti Jones, now 34, told the BBC a documentary with the title “R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes” that the singer sexually abused her while they dated from 2011 to 2013, beginning when she was 27 and he was 44.
They claimed that Kelly cared for her and took her to his “sex dungeon” where he forced himself on her. They also claimed that Kelly forced her to have sex with him and others. She claimed that she met a girl Kelly allegedly bragged he cared for since she was 14 years old.
“I was introduced to one of the girls that he told me that he ‘trained’ since she was 14, that were his words. I saw that she was dressed as I, that they say the things I say, and her mannerisms were like mine. That is when it clicked in my head that he was grooming me to one of his pets. He calls them his pets,” Jones said.

R. Kelly has been accused of sexual abuse by a couple of women.
Jones claimed the singer forced the woman, who is not identified, to “crawl on the floor in the direction of me and performing oral sex on me, and he said:” This is my f-ing pet, I trained her. They are going to learn how you are with me’.”
The unnamed woman’s age was not immediately clear.
Jones said to the BBC, Kelly was “very abusive, physically, mentally, verbally. I think he gets a kind of satisfaction in itself, in knowing that he is taking control over other people.”
Kelly, 51, declined to comment on the BBC about the alleged abuse.
R. Kelly’s former manager, Rocky Bivens claims that he was there when the singer married the late R&B star Aaliyah.
