US media sources are suggesting that R&B and soul superstar R KELLY is facing new allegations about his conduct to a number of women, who, it’s claimed, he’s keeping in what’s been described as a “sex-obsessed cult where Kelly bans them from contacting the outside world”.
These as yet unfounded allegations were made by former members of the performer’s entourage. The women, Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones and Asante McGee said there are at least six women living in properties rented by Kelly in Chicago and Atlanta. They claim that he tells them when they can eat, shower, sleep, and bathe, while also telling them to engage in “sex encounters that he records'” and shows his friends.
A representative for Kelly spoke on Monday saying the singer “unequivocally denies” all allegations and said he will “work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and to clear his name”.
R Kelly, of course, is no stranger to sordid allegations about his personal life. These include his marriage to a very young Aaliyah, being sued for “emotional distress” by Tracey Sampson, an intern at Epic Records and charges relating to child pornography,
