Is The Pied Piper of R&B Running a “Cult” Full Of Young Girls?

It may be of little surprise to most, but in a bombshell story Buzzfeed published today, R. Kelly, who allegedly spreads chlamydia and helped write the album Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number with his 15-year-old wife, is reportedly running some sort of sex cult.

The gist of the story—written by Jim DeRogatis, the former Chicago Sun-Times music critic who covered the 2002 R. Kelly sex tape scandal from day one—is this: Young girls, most of whom are aspiring musicians, meet R. Kelly in the hopes of advancing their singing career. From there they move into one of his homes in either suburban Atlanta or Chicago and become his “babies” and they call him “daddy.” The girls are required to follow a stringent set of rules laid out by the Pied Piper of R&B. Their cell phones are confiscated and they are given new ones, to be used only for approved phone calls. They have to have to have Kelly’s blessing before deciding what to eat and wear, and of course they are required to be at his service sexually.

The girls’ parents are upset and furious about this. One mother, who hasn’t seen her daughter since 2016, told Buzzfeed: “It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner—it was horrible. I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she’s in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.”

The story quotes other parents who haven’t seen their daughters in over a year but believe that they are with Kelly.

BuzzFeed spoke to three people who were formerly in Kelly’s inner circle. They said that he keeps women in Chicago and outside of Atlanta and controls every aspect of their lives. The apartment he rents in Chicago is inside of Trump Tower, which seems fitting for a multitude of reasons. Cheryl Mack, who formerly worked as Kelly’s personal assistant, said, “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.”

Once charged with making pornography featuring himself having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl who was also his god daughter (he was acquitted in 2008 after the woman in question told a grand jury it wasn’t her in the video), Kelly has settled multiple sex-related lawsuits. According to the BuzzFeed article, he allegedly films himself having sex with the girls and shows the videos to his friends.

The police are aware of the allegations and have checked them out. But when questioned by the police, one woman said she was “fine and did not want to be bothered.” After all, consenting to be someone’s sex slave isn’t illegal, and the age of consent in Georgia is 16.

In a recorded phone call released to BuzzFeed, after R. Kelly tells one aspiring singer, “I want you to get in the habit of telling me what color panties you got on every day,” he ignores her once she tries to steer the conversation back to her music career. He says, “I’m more interested in developing you. Songs are not an issue. We can always do a hit song.”
