In August 2017, a 24 years old lady, Jerhonda Pace came out to speak about the abuse she says she experienced at the hands of “R&B” legend.
She, however, has violated a nondisclosure agreement with claims of underage-sex with the R&B singer by speaking in an interview with BuzzFeed.
Pace, who met Kelly when she was just 15 years old, said the singer was like Charles Manson.
“I didn’t have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He’s brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson,” Pace said.
In her quest to seek justice, she was on the popular American talk show “The Real” where she gave a graphic description of her experience in the hands of R. Kelly, including an allegation that an older woman was around to teach her and other young girls how to please the music icon.
“The trainer, it’s a woman she trains you to please him sexually,” Pace said. “She told me how to please him, and she also taught me what I liked.”In describing the encounter, Pace also said that Kelly took her virginity.
“I got invited to his tour bus. I went out to his tour bus and you have him naked and her naked, and I’m looking like, ‘OK, what is this?’ Because Robert Kelly is the one who took my virginity.”
Kelly’s abuse wasn’t just sexual, said Pace, who also stated that he would become physically violent and lock her in a room for days.
“It’s very frightening,” Pace said. “He would slap you in your face. He would physically harm you, and he would put you in a room, and he would lock you in a room for days.”
Luck finally smiled on Pace as she finally had the opportunity to escape from the hell hole which she did without looking back
“I told him my uncle lived a few doors down and I wanted to go to my uncle’s house to grab some shoes,” Pace said. “And he was like, ‘OK, well when you get there, you get the shoes and you come right back.’ And at that moment, when I knew I got out the house, I was like, ‘I’m not going back. I refuse.’ I wasn’t going back.”
R Kelly has been in the eyes of the storm over series of accusations on holding women against their own will over the years. In an article written by Jim DeRogatis, he claims R. Kelly has allegedly turned two aspiring female singers into his sex slaves. He did this by brainwashing them as well as both physical and verbal abuse.
The two singers are said to be a part of a “cult” of his which contains at least six women. These women live in his homes of Chicago and Atlanta. Three women Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee, described as former “associates” of the singer say he is an alleged control freak.
“You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom … [Kelly] is a master at mind control … He is a puppet master” said Mack. The report portraits R. Kelly as a very controlling person who tells the women what to wear, what to eat, what to say, and how to please him sexually. He allegedly records his sexual encounters with them and shows other men.
R.Kelly, the “King of R&B” was in 2002 charged to court with 12 counts of child pornography. He was found guilty. In recent times, the musician has been on the low-key as he music career has taken a nose-dive.
