Randee St. Nicholas/RCA RecordsA promo for a new U.K. TV documentary called R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes shows one of the singer’s former girlfriends, Kitti Jones, speaking about her alleged abuse at the hands of Kelly.
In the fifty-three second clip of the BBC Three documentary, which is posted on Twitter, Kitti claims that R. Kelly had a set of house rules she had to abide by when she first moved in with him.
“He would say, ‘You know not to wear that.’ ‘Have on your sweatpants…’Go change your clothes’ ’cause… that was my wardrobe. Sweatpants,” she begins.
Pointing to the tighter-fitting pants worn during her interview in the documentary, she adds, “This will get me probably slapped. Because it’s fitted.”
Kitti then describes how, after being introduced to another one of the girls who she alleges R. Kelly told her that he “trained, she suddenly realized the singer “had been grooming me to become one of his ‘pets.'”
As previously reported, in October, Jones told Rolling Stone that she when she lived with Kelly from 2011 to 2013, she was beaten, forced to have sex with other women, and made to obey Kelly’s strict rules or face punishment, which included starvation.
Jones told the magazine she considered suicide or murder before she left R. Kelly in September 2013.
In a statement to Rolling Stone, R. Kelly denied Jones’ charges.
A separate story published in July of last year by Buzzfeed claimed that Kelly was the mastermind behind a “sex cult” that brainwashed young women into doing his bidding.
A rep for Kelly denied those charges to ABC News.
R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes is out now, but can only be viewed via the BBC’s website in the U.K.
