In a BBC documentary, former girlfriend Kitti Jones accuses R.Kelly of “grooming” her and young girls as his personal “sex slaves” in a detailed documentary about the singer’s secret life. Some victims are claimed to be as young as 14 years old.

The BBC documentary, R.Kelly: Sex, Girls, and Videotapes, chronicles the string of allegations of sexual abuse of several young women by the R&B megastar. A former girlfriend, Kitty Jones, describes in great detail what she and many other women had to encounter during time spent with Kelly.

Within the two years of dating Kelly, starting in 2011, Jones, 34, claims that she was trained by him and was forced to perform sexual acts with him and his guests. Sometimes these encounters would occur at least 10 times a day in his “sex dungeon,” as reported by The Guardian.

According to People, the documentary premiered this Wednesday and Jones recounted some very dark and disturbing moments during their time together. Pursuant to Jones, she met R. Kelly in June of 2011 while working at an after-party for a concert in Dallas. By the end of the year, Jones sold her car and moved in with R. Kelly.

In 2017, Jones, along with three other women involved with Kelly, spoke out and accused him of “brainwashing” several women into joining his “cult-like group. Which is where Kelly forced them to have sex with him, controlled what they wore, and when they were able to communicate to the outside world.

Throughout the documentary, Jones describes Kelly as a narcissist claiming he was “very abusive, physically, mentally, and verbally. I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he’s taking control over other people.”

Kelly has since denied all claims, stating that he is “working diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name,” as reported by Daily Mail.
