Shocking and tragic news as we discover that R. Kelly has started a sex cult, as revealed by Buzzfeed news.
According to Buzzfeed, singer R. Kelly is keeping several aspiring singers in homes across the country, removing them from their loved ones, and forcing them into lives as sex slaves.
In a detailed report, Buzzfeed details how R. Kelly keeps at least 6 different aspiring singers in homes outside Atlanta and Chicago. Kelly restricts the women's phone access, dictates what they eat and when bathe, and requires the women to ask permission to leave their rooms.
Former assistants and protege's of R. Kelly also tell Buzzfeed that R. Kelly films himself having sex with the women to show his friends later.
However, R Kelly's former personal assistant said Kelly tells the women to dress in jogging suits because “he doesn’t want their figures to be exposed; he doesn’t want them to look appealing.” When other men are in the same room, Kelly “would make the girls turn around and face the wall in their jogging suits because he doesn’t want them to be looked at by anyone else.”
The article also alleges R. Kelly will physically attack and harm the women if they act too friendly with other men. Once R. Kelly choked and slapped one of the women he is holding captive because she was being too nice to the cashier in a Subway. He struck another woman for laughing at a limo driver's joke.
A mother of one of the women, told Buzzfeed,"The fact is he went to court, he was never found guilty — he was acquitted — and we were led to believe there was no truth in it. Now I got all of these people asking about why my daughter is there, telling me, ‘All of that, the charges against Kelly, was true.’ Well, how come you didn’t tell me that before?”
How is this allowed to continue? Well, it seems as though there is nothing illegal happening.
All the women are of legal age. Police in Atlanta and Chicago have checked in on the women to make sure they aren't held against their will.
