I can’t even with his face, so here’s a puppy. New accusations against slimy, globulus fecal cell-filled petri dish R. Kelly have come to light this week. A 24-year-old woman named Jerhonda Pace has broken a non-disclosure agreement in order to tell her story in hopes it will help put an end to R. Kelly’s continued “alleged” abuse of underage women.
BuzzFeed spoke with Jerhonda, and NDA be damned, she didn’t want to keep quiet. She also didn’t hold back.
“If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that’s what I will do. I didn’t have anybody to speak up on my behalf when I was going through what I was going through with him. He’s brainwashed them really bad, and it kind of reminds me of Charles Manson. I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped.”
Pace’s account is meticulously detailed, and her reporting of R. Kelly’s methods and behaviors line up perfectly with other accounts we’ve heard. She’s even taken a polygraph and passed with I Believe I Can Fly-ing colors.
Pace, 15 years old at the time, met R. Kelly at his own child pornography trial in 2008. That’s right, R. Kelly allegedly picked up a child at his own trial where he was accused of urinating in the mouth of a 14 year old girl. Pace was a young superfan and fellow Chicagoan who ditched school every day to attend the trial of her favorite singer. After the trial, an R. Kelly employee invited Pace to R. Kelly’s mansion for a party via Myspace (how many lives must you ruin, Tom!?).
According to Pace, more party invitations followed. First she was allegedly asked to parade around naked. She was allegedly instructed to give him oral sex. She was allegedly asked to sign letters claiming she has stolen jewelry and cash to be used against her later if she refused to cooperate. She was allegedly given a cocktail R. Kelly called “Sex in the Kitchen,” after which the two allegedly had sex. Pace says she was a virgin, and R. Kelly “thought that was exciting.” Pace was 16 years old at the time, a fact that she claims to have eventually disclosed to R. Kelly who instructed her to “tell anyone who asked that she was 19, and act like she was 25.” And this is the same guy who still has concerts dates on the books through October.
Pace claims that R. Kelly filmed their encounters without permission, asked her to call him “daddy,” wanted her to wear pigtails and made her find school girl uniforms to wear. She also claims she was forced into having a threesome with the girl who appeared in the video at his trial.
Pace says she eventually left R. Kelly’s house for good in 2010 after she was caught breaking the rules by sending a text, and was allegedly slapped, choked and spit on.
Pace contacted a Chicago attorney who had advertised specifically that she handles cases of women with charges against R. Kelly. Yo, it’s a real fucking problem when ambulance chasers start using “Got abused by R. Kelly?” on their bus stop ads. A settlement with R. Kelly was negotiated and an DNA (that’s now being broken) was signed. Pace knows she could get sued for talking, but it’s worth it to her if it will stop him.
Of course, R. Kelly’s camp denied all allegations of wrongdoing in a statement released Tuesday.
“The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career. Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation.”
If R. Kelly wants to get his rocks off this badly, I suggest he go ahead and just fuck himself. Sideways, in crosshatch fashion, vertically, horizontally, with a globe, a compass, a sextant or with a GPS, it don’t matter to me. Just leave the women and girls out of it.
