This report on R. Kelly is both shocking and disturbing if true.

According to a report from Buzzfeed’s Jim DeRogatis, a journalists who has been documenting and covering R. Kelly’s decade long sex-abuse allegations, R. Kelly has been keeping teenage girls in his Atlanta and Chicago homes in what’s being described as a ‘sex-obsessed, abusive cult.”

According to exclusive interviews with three former member’s of R. Kelly’s crew, Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones and Asante McGee, six women live in Kelly’s Atlanta and Chicago homes and he allegedly controls every aspect from their lives, from what they eat, what they wear, when they sleep and he records his sexual interactions with them.

According to one parent of the girls allegedly at one of these homes, “When we got to go backstage with R. Kelly, we stayed there over two hours…One-on-one, with just me and my daughter and him. We went back to talk about the music. He listened to her CD. He was going to help her with her CD, and I was really impressed with him at first, because I have always been an R. Kelly fan.”

“In the back of our minds, we were thinking [my daughter] could be around him if I was with her,” J said. “It didn’t really hit home. Even with the Aaliyah situation, now that I think about it, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number’ … but you don’t think about that. You grew up with the song, and you like the song.”

According to this parent, the last time she saw her daughter was in December. This is what she 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.”

R. Kelly has a history of sexual abuse allegations.

You may remember the infamous tape that allegedly shows him urinating on a young woman. His marriage to a then teenage Aaliyah was also looked at as inappropriate by many.

The allegations are extensive and it’s important to remember that that is what they are for the moment.

Representatives of R. Kelly have yet to comment on the story and its allegations.
