An upcoming BBC3 documentary has revealed new accusations made against R Kelly. The world famous RNB singer has enjoyed immense popularity during his career with numerous bestsellers. However, in 2002 a video tape surfaced which showed the singer engaged in sexual activity with an underage girl. In the tape the star can be seen urinating on the girl who was no older than 12. The case was dropped because the police did not have probable cause for their search warrant. The star has also faced accusations of illegally marrying a 15-year-old, and last year Buzzfeed revealed that a number of parents have begun legal challenges against him saying that he is holding their daughters in a “cult” against their will.
Now details have emerged about R Kelly’s cult-like behaviour in an upcoming documentary titled R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes. The documentary lays bare evidence that makes it clear that the star has a fixation on young girls. Former girlfriend Kitti Jones recounts how he has groomed numerous “pets” and forced them all to have sex with him in a “sex dungeon”:
“I 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.
“[he made me] 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.’”

Ms Jones had previously spoken to Rolling Stone magazine, describing R Kelly as “very abusive, physically, mentally, verbally”.
Another former girlfriend has also admitted to the star’s abusive history, saying,
“I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on.”
All of the girls were alleged to have been underage during these experiences, and the parents of three girls who are still currently living with R Kelly have held numerous press conferences in a bid to have their daughters returned to them. Despite this, R Kelly remains adamant that none of the accusations are true, although he hasn’t offered a particularly satisfying explanation for why he’s living with three fourteen-year-old girls either.
