R. Kelly made the female members of his alleged sex cult sign an iron-clad non-disclosure agreement preventing them from giving interviews to the press, among other stipulations.
The document which was obtained by The Blast was given to the women to sign prior to moving into his home in suburban Atlanta and a Chicago recording studio.
The document recognizes the signees as members of Robert Kelly's team (the 'Team'), which allowed them to "access privileged and/or confidential and/or proprietary information only available to trusted members of Mr. Kelly related enterprises (the Opportunities')."
The "opportunities" are referenced throughout the document but it is never clarified what those opportunities are.
The signees also agreed not to disclose any confidential information to "Other team members and/or officers of the Company except where there is a specific reason to know."
The signees also agreed not to share confidential information with the press before or after they signed the NDA.
"During and after my involvement in the Team, I shall not directly or through any publicity representative or otherwise circulate, publish or otherwise disseminate any news story, article, book or other publicity about or relating to the Confidential information."
The NDA also included a provision preventing the signee from suing Kelly.
Kelly dominated the headlines earlier this month after a Lifetime Network documentary analyzed allegations of sex abuse against the 52-year-old singer.
