Another young woman has spoken out about an alleged encounter with singer R. Kelly amid allegations that the star is keeping women against their will in a “sex cult,” reports TMZ.
The woman, who has not been identified, said she attended an R. Kelly concert last year. While she was at the show, she claims members of the singer’s staff handed her an armband that would allow her backstage access.
According to her account, she went backstage after the concert and met Kelly. They exchanged phone numbers and began to communicate on and off. He told the young woman he would help her build a modeling and acting career.
She said Kelly eventually invited her to his home in Georgia and told her to “wear something sexy.”
She, and the friend she brought with her, were not allowed to use their phones while there. At one point, she claims they were escorted to the singer’s bedroom where she was told to strut around the room and pose like a model.
When the woman left, she said she was given $200 to buy black lingerie, black heels, and red lipstick for her next visit. She reportedly returned to the home two more times, but each time she went, the singer grew more and more domineering. She claims the two never had sex, but that he did convince her to take nude photos.
In February, Kelly allegedly sent the woman a one-way ticket to Los Angeles, telling her not to bring any friends. Feeling uncomfortable with the situation, she told her mom who immediately put an end to it.
The allegations follow accusations that the singer is holding young women against their will in a “sex cult.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, one of the women allegedly being held against her will spoke out against the accusations.
“I am happy where I’m at and the people that I’m around.”
Jocelyn Savage, 21, made this statement after her father, along with other family members, held a press conference claiming that the 21-year-old was under Kelly’s control.
Jocelyn refuted the allegations, also claiming that it was her father who encouraged the then 17-year-old to move into the singer’s Atlanta home, reports Daily Mail.
A representative for Kelly said that the singer “unequivocally denies” the allegations and that he will “work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and to clear his name.”
