Kitti Jones, a former girlfriend of R. Kelly, outed the singer for training a 14-year-old girl to be his sex “pet.”
The information came to light in a new BBC documentary, R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes, which airs today (Mar. 28). Kitti, 34, started dating Kelly in 2011. She claims Kelly forced her to have sex with him and others multiple times in a “sex dungeon.”
According to the Guardian, Kitti said:
“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.”
R. Kelly has a terrible track record of abuse that he’s continually denied. He’s perhaps most infamously known for illegally marrying a then 15-year-old Aaliyah. Kelly’s previous manager, Rocky Bivens, also says in the documentary that he attended the secret wedding.
Just last year, Kelly denied Kitti’s accusations of “physical abuse, sexual coercion, emotional manipulation and using starvation as a punishment.”
