Another day, another gross R. Kelly story. According to New York Daily News, the R&B singer/songwriter is being accused of giving a woman, whom he previously "groomed" to be in his sex cult, a sexually transmitted disease.
The news outlet reports that the unidentified woman was 19 years old when she began dating Kelly last June. However, she soon realized that the relationship was very tumultuous and abusive, and ended things in February of this year. Now, she's telling her story. This unknown woman is one of several who've come forward with serious accusations of a sexual matter against the artist.
This woman filed with the Dallas Police Department last week and she's preparing a federal civil complaint. She said in her legal docs that the relationship with Kelly consisted of "several forms of criminal misconduct," including "unlawful restraint, furnishing alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor, and aggravated assault (via the referenced intentional STD infection)."
A representative for Kelly told The Washington Post that the singer “categorically denies all claims and allegations” in these documents.
Last year, a Buzzfeed exposé shared the alleged secret life of Kelly, his "sex cult" and how he allegedly "grooms" young girls to be his "pets." While speaking to The Post, Timothy Savage, the father of one of the women in Kelly's cult, said: "We felt from the beginning that the reason he's holding the girls is he has some kind of STD that he couldn't cure."
Moreover, just last month, another ex of Kelly's named Kitti Jones called the singer out for "training" a 14-year-old. "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," Jones admitted in a BBC documentary titled "R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes."
