Several fast young women offered themselves to predatory singer R. Kelly, and now their parents claim they are being held by him in his “cult”. Kelly has been dogged by accusations of child molestation.

A 19-year-old aspiring singer is among several women whose parents claim the 50-year-old singer/songwriter is “indoctrinating into his cult”.

The parents say the aspiring singer met Kelly backstage when she was 19 and allegedly embarked on a relationship with him claim they have not seen their daughter since December 2016.

via WENN.com — The concerned mom and dad, named in the report only as J. and Tim, have filed a report with Johns Creek Police Department accusing Kelly, full name Robert Sylvester Kelly, of keeping their daughter as part of a “cult” and accusing him of being “abusive and of “controlling her daughter.”

In an investigative report carried out by BuzzFeed News, the parents told the news outlet that the last time they saw their child she resembled a cult member.

“It was as if she was brainwashed. (She) looked like a prisoner – it was horrible,” J. said. “I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she’s in love and (Kelly) is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.”

Two other parents also accused the star of controlling the life of their daughter, who met the singer when she was 17 years old.

Kelly’s lawyer, Linda Mensch denied the allegations in a statement given to BuzzFeed News.

“We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be,” she wrote.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    R. Kelly needs help…he has a thing for lil girls, ole nasty ass mf.

  • lil goodie

    Wow.. happy Monday

  • Ni Ni

    Sorry parents, there’s not a thing you can do now. but sit back and wait til she ages out…maybe around 21.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. She’s a legal adult. If she wants to be a part of R Kelly’s “cult” she has the right to do that. Nothing much her parents can do.

  • Richard Donald Jones

    Or like Sparkles Niece they can “lean back and enjoy his gift” ..lol

  • SummerBaby

    I believe every bit of this. ? I find it sickening. ?

  • Karen Brady

    the headline had me like teee heee.. now let me go read this.

  • hotntot95

    I believe it.?..dude got a serious secks problem…( no longer a fan)..BUT at least they are grown this time…might I add that …Hugh Hefner has had a great time bedding many grown women (under contract) at the same time under the same roof…?…(nobody called him a cult)

  • Dowoop

    lol…same here.

  • SummerBaby

    His azz think that he’s slick this time around by getting girls a little bit older.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I highly doubt the stories of these families..a cult is quite a reach..BUT my inquiring mind does want to know where r.Kelly is during his down time..he never surfaces in the public eye until he is about to drop a new album or go on tour ??

  • SummerBaby

    If these young ladies are being held against their will that is a crime no matter the age. It’s called unlawful restraint.

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    The fact that parents would either allow this to happen to an under age juvenile or young adult & they knew nothing about it until it was too late says alot bout their parenting I’m not feeling any sympathy

  • Karen Brady

    ole peeing azzz

  • Karen Brady

    🙂 !!!

  • SummerBaby

    The only one to blame is R. Kelly.

  • Ni Ni

    He probably has a real sex dungeon. Can you imagine what would be going on in there? All kinds of Bdsm… Is that what you all it? Not that i know about such things ?.

  • SummerBaby

    Cult may not be the right word, but I believe he has this type of living situation. I think they called it a cult because the parents feel like the young ladies are being manipulated/brain washed.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I don’t know if they being held against their will..the parents says they seen their daughter and she appeared to be in a cult..they couldve saved her right then…im confuseddd

  • Dowoop

    Not that R.Kelly isnt scum but….. the parents seem like they just want control back talking about reprogramming her. A lot of kids rebel into this behaviour because of controlling parents only to end up being controlled by someone else.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Yea something is definitely off about this…

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don’t go off gossip and rumors. I need facts and evidence.

  • KarmaBackAround

    And the fact that they’ve seen her but she chose not to stay with her parents..somethin is strange.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So if he is suspected (known) to be a predator of young girls or women, WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW YOUR YOUNG DAUGHTER TO BE AROUND HIM?!

  • Rayne

    Yes his secks problem is out of control it seems.

  • Ms. Cree

    Pied Piper!!! LOL I blame the parents for not raising their daughters to beware of predators like Kellz. Kellz been doing the same thang since 88′ They want a check!

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    Hold up is this the new “young girlfriend” parents who are saying this??

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    I believe it. I read a blind item of him bragging about the freaky stuff he makes his “young girlfriend” do. Smh

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I like the way you spelled out secks. I’ll be using this in the future.

  • SummerBaby

    I believe it too! I think his azz is sick AF.

  • SummerBaby

    We come in contact with predators all the time simply by living life.

  • NicoleZee

    Why isn’t this sicko in prison??? Everybody knows that he likes underage girls. If he was some regular Joe off the street, he’d be in prison by now. They need to quit giving a slap on the wrist to child molesters. Execute their sick asses and let’s move the hell on. Trump is an idiot, but if he doesn’t do anything else while he remains in office, I really hope he signs a law for tougher penalties for these sick criminals and more death penalty sentences. These sick lowlife’s don’t deserve to breathe when they rape women and children. Disgusting.

  • Ms. Cree

    Wayment…. Is this the same girl that the MOTHER escorted backstage and left her? Operation secure the bag in full effect

  • NicoleZee

    Doesn’t R. Kelly still live in Chicago??? If so, I say let one of the gangs go after him. Now that would be justice. These gangs want to kill people?? Then kill someone who deserves to be dead like a sick child molester like R. Kelly. SMDH.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    I still can’t get over him and that video. Oh lawd. I never looked at him the same way. I can’t support a pedophile regardless of who he is!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nineteen is NOT underage in any jurisdiction.

  • NicoleZee

    I think Hugh Hefner was bedding women over 18, or at least I hope so. I’ve never heard of Hefner molesting anyone, he just enjoys sex, nothing wrong with that as long as everyone is an adult. And many of Hefner’s women worked for him and did Playboy. That’s why they call it The Playboy Mansion. I used to want to pose for the magazine long long time ago, nudity doesn’t bother me.

  • RespectSelf

    This stuff really be hard to take in… Dude is so talented, but clearly has an issue with unhealthy desires. The sad part of these stories is that these chicks are throwing themselves at him despite his reputation.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    For real!!!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Soooooo when she met him at 17, the parents didn’t step in?

  • NicoleZee

    I don’t believe for one second that R. Kelly only messes with women over 18 now. Once a sicko always a sicko. They don’t change. I believe he’s still molesting underage girls. He belongs in prison. It’s going to take him molesting another child and the prosecution having very strong evidence before he is ever put in prison. Sad and disgusting.

  • NicoleZee

    There is no help for lowlife’s like him. They will continue to have those urges for molesting children. It’s a sickness. This is why rapists and molesters deserve the death penalty. They will never stop, they will continue to hurt people and sometimes they escalate into murdering their victims too. Disgusting. They executed Ted Bundy for raping and killing all those women though!!! I’m sad for all those women who never got to move on with their lives and for their families that still grieve.

    It shouldn’t take killing someone to be considered for the death penalty. If you viciously and purposefully hurt others, your ass needs to be sent to death row!!!

  • hotntot95

    I agree, especially when everyone is an adult…the term “cult” is what doesn’t seem to fit…

  • NicoleZee

    You know what, I wish vigilante justice could be passed into law. That way when these rapists and child molesters commit crimes, anyone should have the right to end their lives. Or, I wish The Purge was real, but with stipulations. Give us one day where we could end the life of sick lowlifes like R. Kelly; I’d get my granddaddy’s old shotgun and aim straight for his chest AND groin. Justice served :)!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    When I think cult, I think of everyone being underaged with some nasty old man controlling and raping the girls. But I wouldn’t be surprised if R. Kelly is hiding young girls in his basement, I would believe it. And I definitely won’t be surprised if someone linked to him turns up missing or dead with him being the main culprit. Disgusting.

  • Renee26

    I with you here! A lot of black folk cape for this child molester because they like his music and/or because he got they panties wet in the 90’s and early 2000’s…these are the same people who don’t care about young black girls. It would be easy for ANY actor or entertainer to control the young impressionable mind of a teenager. Kids don’t have the mature mind to realize that it’s wrong for these grown men to want to have sex with them…they think it’s cute but in actuality it’s dangerous.

  • Renee26

    I would have is ballz over mine

  • Renee26

    Some people have already saw it in that video tape

  • Renee26

    Agreed…I ain’t never that thirsty and there are plenty of other singers to lust after

  • NicoleZee

    If he’s ever tried for molesting anyone, he’ll probably be acquitted just like Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson. I just don’t understand why celebs get away with crimes. So it’s okay for celebs to be rapists, child molesters, prostitutes, or even murderers while anyone else committing those crimes would be put in a jail cell with the quickness. SMDH at this country most of the time. I hope and pray that lawmakers will for once enact tougher laws on crimes where people are severely harmed. I say use the death penalty more. Why should someone get a prison sentence for raping or killing someone??? Prison is like a luxury vacation these days. They don’t deserve to even breathe. Sad.

  • Renee26

    They probably staying willfully and don’t realize they’ve been brainwashed….R Kelly probably brings them all in the theater room to watch a Goldie (The Mack) type mind control video every day

  • NicoleZee

    If that were my daughter, Kelly wouldn’t be able to have an open casket at his funeral once I got done with his ugly disgusting ass.

  • Renee26

    At the compound…he’s the black Hugh Hefner…only young tenders allowed

  • bashi

    The black Hugh Hefner why not just get a ranch in Las Vegas Nevada

  • hotntot95

    Let it be proven first…messing with underaged girls is a serious ..if he’s at it again the truth always eventually comes to the light…

  • Renee26

    But he still a pervert non the less

  • Renee26

    Ok!

  • Renee26

    I agree because the victims often live a lifetime of pain behind being molested/raped….but the lawmakers won’t change the laws because too many of THEM fit into that category. They protect their own and it would be a very slippery slope if offenders started getting heavier sentences.

  • hotntot95

    Absolutely. I was done when I heard about the Aaliyah situation…now it sounds like he has himself surrounded by women just for sexual purposes…similar to Charlie Sheen…

  • Fire & Ice

    I know that these girls are 18/19 years old, but let’s be real, they’re still babies. These girls are still teenagers and are no match for a man this age. Anyone notice how close these girls are to being underage? These girls are barely legal, but legal enough that he won’t get in trouble. This man meets tons of women, it’s not a coincidence that they’re barely legal. R Kelly is sick and specifically hunts for barely legal young girls.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    WhatEVA! These lil fast arse heiffers put themselves in this situation. They are not as naive as one would think. Long gone are the days when education and a legal job was the goal and PARTYING AND CLUB BOUNCIN was leisure. Its 2017 and h0oeing, being buckethead nakes is the neq comeup for some. Get ot how you live!…SMDH.folk actin like they didn know Kelz was/IS A FREAK

  • Renee26

    and they said Charlie got that thang you can’t get rid of

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I SAW IT…….

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    It’s called dickmatized not brainwashed. 19 is legal…and that’s definitely the age where you WANT to have sex. if you say you didn’t you lying. Now I don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors, so I’ll reserve judgement until I see some receipts. However, I think back to when I was 19. I wasn’t with 50 year olds but I did experiment with a guy in his early 40s and it was NOTHING my mother could do about it at that age. IJS…

  • Fire & Ice

    I wonder why young girls/boys are always blamed in the black community, when a grown ass adult violates them ???. The victims are always labled as “fast”.

  • Ebony Starr

    “We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be,” she wrote.

    Notice the wording. She speaks of hos talent, his fans and how he is working hard to become the best person and artist that he can. No mention of the girls. Unless they fall under the category of the people that he works hard to take care of.

  • Ebony Starr

    It’s the same as Rashida saying She “grew up” with Kirk! She manipulated, preyed upon and she thought it was love!

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He is a child molester, and should be in jail. SMH!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    R. Kelly should be a registered sexual predator. Enough said.

  • KarmaBackAround

    He prob made them sign a disclaimer for that r n b dack ???

  • Renee26

    Same and never looked at him the same afterward

  • Renee26

    More than likely …he doesn’t want any more investigations

  • NicoleZee

    I was just saying that yesterday. Most people in positions of power are criminals themselves. Judges, lawyers, police, FBI…..I wouldn’t even want to know what I would find on their personal computers and cell phones, probably a lot of child porn and illegal transactions. Sad, sick, and disgusting.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Well…I don’t know what that means….but….nah I digress…least I be judged …#scorpiotendencies

  • NicoleZee

    Sad. At least Charlie Sheen chose adults and Sheen was man enough to admit that he lived a dangerous lifestyle. Sheen slept with hookers, strippers, and porn stars, and now lives with HIV. I wonder what R. Kelly loves with???? I wouldn’t be surprised if he has HIV too or some other STD. Charlie Sheen needs redemption, R. Kelly needs a date of execution and his last meal.

  • NicoleZee

    I remember when Charlie Sheen said that women should be paid for their time. Hell, if men paid me for all the time I’ve wasted with them, I’d be on Forbes list with Oprah by now because my account would be overflowing with funds!!!! LOL!

  • NicoleZee

    Certain topics in the Black community are still considered taboo, which I find sick and ridiculous. A lot of Black people will not address or admit that issues like child molestation, rape, mental illness, HIV, and even domestic violence readily happen everyday. It really is sad. I’m not raising my son like that. I plan to talk to him about EVERYTHING, I don’t care how embarrassed or uncomfortable he is! I’m not about to have my child out here being dumb, uneducated, or becoming a sick person like R. Kelly or Bill Cosby. I wish my son would even think about harming someone like that, he wouldn’t need a trial, he would need a closed casket funeral!!!! I brought him in this world, and I will take him right back out if he does some sick disgusting shit like rape or molest someone. SMDH! If more parents were tougher and gave a damn about their kids, the world would be a better place!!!!

  • Luv Pitties

    I noticed in a lot of his songs he referred to himself as the pied piper who was known to surround himself with children because of his music and molest them if I remember correctly… Then one of his songs came on Pandora one day and he was singing about why did you take my picture down in your locker you know I still love you?

  • imright

    when R Kelly asked the reporter to define the word TEENAGER ? with a serious face i KNEW he was a PERVERT. ppl still support him tho?????

  • Chuck

    lol

  • Faux Gibbler

    LOL stop it.

  • KcoolMuziq

    EVERY artist is a hit away from a comeback. Meanwhile, I have my tickets to see The Pied Piper later this year on my birthday.

    R. Kelly’s voice sounds BETTER than EVER! I saw him last year also.

  • Moon Lee

    He’s a pedophile! Plan and simple…. Stop paying to see a monster, that can sing.

  • Isignedup4this

    I hate that his musical genius talents are often overridden with scandal.

  • Connie

    That lady beside him in the pic looks like Pam (Tichina Arnold).

  • EMILY POST

    Nothing shocks me Pedophile with money at some point it’s creepy.

  • imright

    his own fault ?????

  • Toni ToniToni

    Wayment, WHAT… Lawd.
    He bold as hell with his pervertness and effery.

  • Lisa daniels

    He said he was the pied Piper.

  • Judi Lauren

    It is

  • Judi Lauren

    He been asking for ID since bump n grind…

  • http://ebonynsweet.com EbonyNSweet.com

    lmao… Those women are THOOOOTS !!! THOTS THOTS THOTS… Women throw themselves at Wealthy men all the time… And live in their mansions Rent FREE … THIS STORY IS BOGUS.. Those women want to be there, nobody forced them.

  • http://ebonynsweet.com EbonyNSweet.com

    Seriously this is why women get paid .64cent on the dollar lol.. Yall claim the victim card too much. Ya’ll can’t be equal to men if you don’t take personal responsibility for your actions.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    I said it when Vibe magazine published him and Aaliyah’s marriage certificate, he should of been under the jail. I love his music but he’s a predator.

  • Ms Thang

    Exactly

  • Ms Thang

    “Show me some id before I get knee deep”. Come on man. If you need to see some id means she’s probably really young looking. Sick

  • Ms Thang

    I heard he was married. She was only 17 or 18. He was almost 30

  • Ms Thang

    Wow. Unbelievable

  • Ms Thang

    Because they’re kids. He knows better

  • Ms Thang

    Why not blame him? R kelly is 50 he know he shouldn’t be messing with those young girls. I guess you won’t be mad if he got ahold of your kid. Would you blame yourself? I think not. Unless you’ll take the money and go away like the parents of the other children he’s molested.

  • Ms Thang

    Maybe the parents didn’t believe that he would do something like that, just like you and others. It’s a different story now that he’s pissing their daughters.

  • Ms Thang

    That’s why he’s able to continue to prey on young girls like that. The people are blaming the girls and the parents instead of holding him accountable for what he’s been doing for a long time. Just read the comments.

  • Ms Thang

    They can’t make her stay with them. If that was the case. Every family member of people in cults would get their loved ones out of those situations. He’s brainwashing them

  • Luv Pitties

    That’s disgusting. He always sings about how he makes babies to his songs that are bout screwing (practically) babies

  • KarmaBackAround

    Idk..i need more on this before i can reach that far to say he’s brainwashing them

  • Sunshine

    Why aren’t we upset with the parents who hand their kids to him for “mentoring “? It’s until they don’t get what they want that they then say he is holding my adult child against their will. Do I agree with what he is doing? No, but unlike before he is making sure they are of legal age and he plays the parents as well. 3 of those girls are in their 20’s, they can walk out at any time. I’m sick of parents using there kids for riches and then get pissed when it backfires.

  • pure_rachet

    Scandalous! Tell me more!!

  • Disqus_year4016

    I’m still lost to how this is a cult. They have to give me more details. He’s controlling and? Alot of people is controlling, do better ho’s.

  • Disqus_year4016

    It ain’t like these women can’t escape when he go on tour. Is he going to have a kidnap charge? He was in Queens new york performing so they was held against they will then? Did he chain them to the house. I don’t get it.

  • Rhondalousey

    Wowzers.

  • TheWildChild

    Exactly, then you have the little fame chasers, known as groupies. It’s just they’re younger.

  • TheWildChild

    Ha ? a cult? R. Kelly is too stingy with his coins to be providing financial support to a bunch grown women in his home for 6 mos. Now the parents claim they don’t understand why the girl won’t leave, have they sent the officers to his residence for a well check ?
    I read somewhere, these were hired strippers. Where’s the outcry for the 17-19yr teen women bouncing on urine soaked laps of 60+ men at the strip clubs ??

  • TheWildChild

    Exactly ??

  • Ridajean

    Totally agree. Plus, why is the parent also afraid to reveal her name, if she really feel her daughter is in danger? Seems like she is ashamed of herself because she and her husband practically handed her over to Kelly. But these women aren’t minors, so no crime here.

  • Sunshine

    Exactly. If they were getting perks, like backstage BET passes, gifts or money we would not be hearing a thing. Now they want Shaquita to come home. Shaquita chillin, getting free room and board, smashing her mama’s teenage celebrity crush. In 5yrs, she will be to old for Kelz anyway and get the boot.

  • hottlanta

    19 she is grown.

  • Jussjess25

    I believe this entire story thoo ????

  • SummerBaby

    Some of these comments are pissing me off. ?

  • EMILY POST

    American society doesnt have any morals. You have to have morals standards and expectations . There are such low expectation and standards. We live in a society where bisexual prostitutes are being held with high regard for doing nothing more than sleeping with wealthy men. Wealthy men are okayed to do whatever they want.

  • Ms. Cree

    When I was younger I dated older men. MOST women do. She is 19. Legal. Can make decisions on her own. They left out the fact that the mother is the one who took her backstage with him and left. She was happy to do it too. Now your daughter is in a cult (in love) with this man and you mad. They looking for a bag. My daughter would know better.

  • Ant Hill

    but white women get paid more than Black men, don’t let Obama and Hillary sell you that kool aid.

  • sunni_daze

    Several fast young women offered themselves

    They did and the cops said that she looked in good health and said she didn’t want to be bothered with her mother.

  • EMILY POST

    He is 50 years old sleeping with high schoolers. He is like +30 years old then those girls.

  • Charm

    Fast????? Why is that relevant and how do we know they were fast.

    Alls I’m saying is…I’d be dickmatized too…until he trys to pee on me…that’ll break the spell real quick…NINJA WHAT!!!! That’s why he like em young and dumb….
