R.Kelly’s alleged sex cult: More details emerge
R&B legend, R.Kelly was recently accused of holding young ladies against their will in a “sex cult”.
Following the allegations, more details have emerged from the alleged captive and R.Kelly’s neighbours all pointing to the fact that the singer may be innocent.
21-year-old, Joycelyn Savage whose parents raised the allegations in a news conference has called her dad, Tim Savage out for embarrassing her in the media.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Joycelyn insists she’s happy where she is and would love her dad to stop what he’s doing.
Meanwhile, Kelly’s neighbours in his Georgia apartment have expressed shock at the reports of an alleged cult. For them, “the crib is more of a party house than the home base of an abusive cult”.
They said they usually noticed women going and coming but it didn’t seem like they were held “against their will” as reported.
R.Kelly has also “unequivocally” denied the allegations.
