R Kelly Faces Fresh Allegation Of Raping Minors And Physical Abuse

Posted by

Following a recent spate of allegations that he was brainwashing women in a cult-like setup, another woman has accused R&B singer R Kelly of physical abuse and underage sex rape.

Speaking to Jim DeRogatis of Buzzfeed, who has reported on allegations against Kelly for many years, Jerhonda Pace says that she lost her virginity to Kelly aged 16, one year below the age of consent in the US state of Illinois where the incident took place. She broke off contact with Kelly after an incident claiming: “I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on” by him.

Pace chose not to press criminal charges, saying “it would probably be like it was last time, where he wouldn’t get convicted”, referring to Kelly being cleared of making child pornography in 2008. She instead says she negotiated a settlement payment, and signed a non-disclosure agreement, which she is now breaking with the new revelations.

Pace, now 24, says she attended the 2008 court hearings to support Kelly, and that a member of his team contacted her on MySpace afterwards. For the next seven months Kelly and Pace had a sexual relationship. “I had to call him ‘daddy,’ and he would call me ‘baby.’ He wanted me to have two pigtails, and I had to go out and find little schoolgirl outfits,” Pace told Buzzfeed.
