A new claim suggests that singer R. Kelly trained a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave.
In an upcoming BBC documentary, R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, the singer's ex-girlfriend Kitti Jones claims he trained a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave.
Jones claims she dated Kelly from 2011-2013, stating he groomed her and forced her to have sex with him and others in a "sex dungeon."
The Guardian reports that Jones also revealed that she met the 14-year-old, who the R&B singer referred to as his "pet." "I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words," Jones said. "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."
Jones also claims that Kelly made the teen "crawl on the floor towards me and perform oral sex on me, and he said, ‘This is my fucking pet, I trained her. She’s going to teach you how to be with me.'"
This is just one of many accusations of sexual assault and abuse against the singer. In July 2017, BuzzFeed News reported on an alleged sex cult run by Kelly, which claimed that six women were being held and abused. Jerhonda Pace also came forward in September to reveal how she fell victim to Kelly's abuse after meeting him at 15.
