R. Kelly has become almost as well known for accusations of sexual misconduct as he is for his music. The most notorious of those accusations involved an underaged girl and now, a new set of accusations has him involved one again with a teenager, this time a 14-year-old girl he groomed as a “sex pet.” The Guardian reports in a preview of an upcoming BBC3 documentary in which former Kelly girlfriend Kitti Jones accuses the singer of even more instances of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse, including boasting to Jones that he’d trained an underaged girl to be his pet.
According to Jones, she was “introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words. 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.”
She also alleges that the singer expressed his displeasure with “misbehavior” or disappointment in the women by “kicking me, telling me I was a stupid bitch [and] don’t ever get in his business.” In the BBC documentary, she says he was “very abusive” during their two-year relationship, “physically, mentally, verbally. I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he’s taking control over other people.”
Before I talk about R. Kelly out here doing very R. Kelly things, I kind of wish I was running a cult. Not like a creepy ‘rape teenage girls’ cult like the ones you read about. More like a ‘Venmo me $100 and make me lunch and I’ll tell you the true meaning of life like, just trust me and yea don’t forget to Venmo me’ type cult.
DM me for my Venmo info.
But regarding R. Kelly’s sex pet grooming, is it wrong for me to say that I wouldn’t care about this at all if these girls were like, in their 20s? I mean, it would be mega creepy and weird but these women would know what they signed up for.
R. Kelly seems to purposely surround himself with girls that are too young to remember that he peed on a little girl that was too young to realize she was getting peed on by R. Kelly on camera. If you’re 27 years old and you think Kelz can help your music career as long as you live in his basement with 5 other girls who all line up to get kicked and screamed at by this old dude who hasn’t made a hit record in over a decade, then that’s on you.
Buuuuuut, these girls aren’t old enough to drive yet so yea, arrest this man and keep him away from women for the rest of time.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think R. Kelly should probably not be allowed near women ever again. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
