R. Kelly Responds To Allegation Of His Physical & Mental Abuse Against Women

A new report from alleges that R&B singer R. Kelly has kept at least six women in his Chicago and Georgia properties who allegedly fulfill his desires and are punished if they break any of his “rules.”
“You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom,” Kelly’s former personal assistant, Cheryl Mack, tells BuzzFeed. “[Kelly] is a master at mind control … He is a puppet master.” Mack did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Kelly’s lawyer, Linda Mensch, strongly denied the allegations.
“Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him,” she said. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

Several parents are fighting to free their daughters from Kelly’s home, in which he allegedly controls many aspects of their lives, including how they dress, when they bathe, what they eat and how they engage in recorded sexual encounters with the 50-year-old, according to BuzzFeed’s report.

“She just kept saying she’s in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do,” a woman who is only being identified as J. told BuzzFeed of her 21-year-old daughter. “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.”
