R.Kelly – Woman Says Singer Beat Her, Tried To Starve Her
Another woman has come forward, sharing some serious and damaging allegations against R.Kelly. A woman named Kitti Jones says that she is the singer’s ex girlfriend and claims she was physically and sexually abused by Kelly.
Jones was a radio DJ before dating Kelly from 2011-2013. She says they met for the first time at an after-party for one of his concerts in Texas. She recounts that he eventually flew her out to Denver so they could spend time together. Recalling the incident, she claims,
He brushed past me. I’m thinking we’re going to hug or peck each other. But he plopped down on the couch and pulled out his penis and started pleasuring himself.
Despite this alarming encounter, she ignored the red flags and claims that at one point he told her,
I gotta teach you how to be with me…I gotta train you.
He was like a drill sergeant even when he was pleasuring me. He was telling me how to bend my back or move my leg here. I’m like, ‘Why is he directing it like this?’ It was very uncomfortable.
Jones says that during their relationship, the singer opened up to her about his secrets and traumatic upbringing.
Rob kinda makes you feel like you have to defend him. It’s like you and him against the world.
She says things got abusive when she quit her job and moved to Chicago with him.
He would start kicking me, telling me I was a stupid bitch [and] don’t ever get in his business.
She also claims she was punished with starvation, and that Kelly would force her to have sex with other women.
He videotapes everything that he does, and sometimes he’ll just make you watch what he’s done to other girls or girls that he had be together. He would masturbate to that and then have you give him oral sex while he’s watching what he did with somebody else on his iPad. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I didn’t want to do it and I would tell him I didn’t want to do it. It was the most horrible thing. People look at it and go, ‘Oh, you’re grown.’ No. You have to actually be there to know exactly what it felt like for a person to overpower you and make you feel like there’s nothing for you outside of him.
Finally having enough of the abuse and control, Jones left and flew back to Dallas. Kelly’s rep has denied all of Jones’ accusations, saying in a statement:
Mr. Kelly is aware of the repeated and now evolving claims of [Ms. Jones]. It is unfortunate that Ms. Jones, after public statements to the contrary, is now attempting to portray a relationship history with Mr. Kelly as anything other than consensual involvement between two adults. As stated previously, Mr. Kelly does not control the decision-making or force the actions of any other human being, including Ms. Jones, by her own admission. Any claim of wrongdoing of any kind or of mistreatment of any woman by him is false, ill-motived and defamatory.
Jones’ claims come three months after a report accused Kelly of holding young women against their will in a cult.
