R. Kelly Accused of Abusing and Having Sex With Underage Girl in New Claims


A woman breaks a nondisclosure agreement with the singer and reveals that he had sex with her although he knew she was a minor.
Another woman claimed to be R. Kelly's victim has come forward and shared details of her relationship with Kelly following reports that he brainwashed young women to join his "cult" circle. Jerhonda Johnson, now a 24-year-old mother of three with the married name Jerhonda Pace, revealed to Buzzfeed that Kelly had sex with her when she was 16.

They first met in 2008 when he was on trial for child pornography. According to her, she attended the trial because she was a fan. She was even quoted defending her idol in national media back then. Now she, despite signing a nondisclosure agreement, speaks out against the singer in hopes to help other women traumatized by a sexual relationship with him.

After their first meeting, she was contacted by Kelly's employee on MySpace and invited to his party. "pretty starstruck," she gave her number when he asked for it. She was later invited to his mansion and they had oral sex. After their first sexual contact, he tried to silence her "by having her write out and sign letters stating that she had stolen jewelry and cash from him and that her parents had set her up to blackmail him."

On her next visit, they had sex after he got her drunk. She was virgin and he thought it was exciting. Over the next seven months, they had sex repeatedly and he filmed it without her consent. "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," she said.

She initially didn't tell him that she was underage, but she later told him the truth. "I gave him my state ID," she said. According to her, Kelly wasn't bothered at all. Instead, he told her to lie about her age. He said "she should tell anyone who asked that she was 19 and act like she was 25."

During their relationship, she had to obey Kelly's "rules," similar to the ones reported in the "cult" allegation. She was required to dress in baggy clothes, turn over her phone, and ask permission to shower, eat, go to the bathroom, and leave the property. There would be punishments if she broke the rules.

"At the time, I didn't know what I liked, honestly," she explained. "I just knew that I liked his music, so I was pretty much accepting of anything that came with him at the time." She finally left Kelly in January 2010 following an argument after she was caught texting a friend. "I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on," she claimed.

She later received hush-hush money from the singer. She got help from Chicago attorney Susan E. Loggans who boasted representing "two underage girls who claimed the R&B superstar R. Kelly had sex with them."

"I know speaking out against Kelly, Kelly could sue me," she said. "But I'm really not worried about it anymore." She added, "If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that's what I will do. I didn't have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He's brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson." She continued, "I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped."

In response to the new accusations, Kelly's rep said, "The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career. Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation."
