Alleged sexual predator R. Kelly vows to track down his sex cult accusers

Reporter Jim DeRogatis published a disturbing BuzzFeed article accusing R & B singer R. Kelly of holding several young woman captive in an abusive “sex cult” environment. Kelly, who has a long history of alleged sex crimes, denied the bombshell report through his reps.

From TMZ:

A rep for the singer tells TMZ, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

Pursue his accusers? That sounds like a threat.

DeRogatis’s story details one young woman’s parents attempts to extricate their daughter from one of the Chicago or Atlanta rental properties in which he reportedly keeps the women holed up and closely guarded, citing former Kelly associates who testified to the disturbing conditions under which the singer keeps the women ensnared.

TMZ confirmed that wellness checks were performed at Kelly’s rental properties, but the young woman in question insisted she was fine. Although it’s not clear if she’s happy where she is or in the throes of Stockholm syndrome.
