R. Kelly has reportedly brainwashed multiple young women, and has forced them to live in his homes. He courts and convinces young, aspiring female singers into joining him and living with him, where he then takes full control.
He has been accused of forcing at least six women, all of which are of legal age, to live in his homes and do exactly what he says, when he says. He decides what they wear, when they go to the bathroom, when they eat, how they engage in sexual activities, and all other aspects of their lives.
A woman who used to be a part of R. Kelly's entourage confirmed the allegations.
She said, "You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom … [Kelly] is a master at mind control. ... He is a puppet master."
R. Kelly also gives them new cell phones and tells them to stop talking to their parents. In many cases, the girls cut off all communication with their entire family.
One mother said, “I have not talked to my daughter in more than a year. We’ve had deaths in the family, birthdays, and I haven’t heard from her and she hasn’t been here for any of it. I didn’t even hear from her on Mother’s Day. All I want to do is bring her home.”
R. Kelly has a history of alleged sexual misconduct, including being arrested on 12 counts of possession of child pornography, as well as four lawsuits for sex with underage girls.
