R. Kelly is currently facing allegations that he has held at least six women against their will at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago, a report he vehemently denies.
Just last week, Jahronda Pace, one of the most outspoken accusers thus far, appeared on The Real to tell her story about escaping from Kelly’s ‘cult’. (click HERE if you missed that)
Now, Dallas DJ Kitti Jones has come forward to share her story and says that Kellz was a ‘master manipulator’ who told her to call her ‘daddy’ on their first meeting.
Details + video interview below…
In an exclusive interview with Inside Edition, Kitti Jones says she was under the singer’s spell.
“He could make you feel like you’re wearing red and you’re wearing blue,” she said.
“I got to the restroom and I texted him and said, ‘This is Kitti, you just gave me your number,’ and he said, ‘Always refer to me as ‘daddy,'” she said.
Soon, she was joining the “Trapped in the Closet” singer on his tour and traveled back and forth from Dallas to Chicago to spend weekends with him. That’s when she says he began to exert control over everything she did including what he told to wear.
“When you come see me don’t wear clothes like that,” she claims the singer once told her, meaning nothing remotely sexy that might attract other men.
He also asked that she stand whenever he entered the room, according to Jones.
Even with what she already knew, she quit her job and moved to a compound owned by Kelly in Chicago. There were other women living there too, but she says they were forbidden to communicate with each other. The ladies lived in separate suites. Jones claimed it was a virtual prison.
Jones also echoed what Jahronda Pace stated about Kelly’s controlling nature, stating:
“We had to ask to go to the bathroom, [and] ask if we could order food,” she claimed.
She says the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer would get physical if she did something he didn’t like.
“The way he would do me is slapping around,” she said. “I got tossed around, kicked, starved.”
Jones admits that she was never PHYSICALLY held against her will, but she was afraid to leave. She finally gathered the will to move on from the mental abuse after nine months.
“Part of me is scared to call it a cult, but yes, that’s what it is,” she said.
Kelly said he’s had “no comment” in response to Inside Edition’s multiple requests for comment.
It’s not looking too good for the ‘chocolate factory’ singer.
