Entertainment Roundup: R.Kelly accused of holding young women in an “abusive cult” against their will; Ed Sheeran deletes his Twitter account | More stories

Here are the biggest stories from yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing this cloudy Tuesday morning.

R.Kelly has been accused of holding several women in a “sexual cult” against their will

Now this may just be the craziest thing you’ll read today.

A Buzzfeed News claims that parents have accused R&B superstar, R.Kelly of holding their daughters “against their will” in what they call “an abusive cult”.

The parents say R.Kelly holds the girls in promise of giving them a boost in their musical career then “brainwashes” them as he controls every aspect of their lives and ensures they don’t return home.

According to the report, three ladies who used to belong to R.Kelly’s “cult” but have broken free said, “six women live in properties rented by Kelly in Chicago and the Atlanta suburbs, and he controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records.”

The parents have spoken to the police but no charges can be raised yet as the girls cannot be declared missing since they have been in contact, albeit minimal with their family.

R.Kelly’s lawyer has denied the claims saying “We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life. He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be.”


Ed Sheeran deletes his Twitter account

British singer, Ed Sheeran deleted his Twitter account on Monday and it may be because of the comments that have trailed his cameo appearance in the premiere episode of the new season of Game of Thrones.

Sheeran appeared in a role that seemed to disappoint a lot of GoT fans and the whole of Monday was spent thrashing him.

It’s no surprise he deleted his account though. Sheeran had said only last week that he would quit tweeting as a result of vile comments on the platform.
