Parents Accuse R. Kelly of Holding Their Daughters in 'Abusive Cult'

Written by  Complex

An extensive new report on 50-year-old R&B star R. Kelly reveals allegations that the singer is holding multiple women against their will in an "abusive cult." The allegations, detailed in a BuzzFeed Newspiece from Jim DeRogatis Monday, come from concerned parents who say they are now actively fighting to bring their daughters home from what they describe as a "brainwashed" environment.

"[She] looked like a prisoner — it was horrible," one woman, identified only as "J," said of her daughter's alleged relationship with Kelly. "I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she's in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I don't know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening."

J, described as a "devoted stage mom," first moved to Atlanta with her husband Tim to ensure their daughter had a shot at a viable music career. At 19, they say their daughter—who is not identified in the report—was invited backstage at a 2015 show under the pretense that Kelly was going to help her with music.
