A shocking report published in Buzzfeed Monday, perhaps, has the entertainment world buzzing. According to the initial report, uh, R. Kelly could be described as a “17th century brothel owner” (okay, maybe those were our words) after it emerged that he’s allegedly keeping women as sex slaves. Buzzfeed reportedly uncovered that Kelly, has, been keeping numerous women “hostage at his various properties around the world” for several years.
The site claims to have unearthed at least six Kelly confidants who have confided that the claims are “100% accurate”. The claims, viewer discretion is advised, are pretty damning and borderline terrifying. Meanwhile, police precincts in at least two U.S cities (who preferred to remain unnamed) say that they’ve investigated the claims as of this writing, and, have amounted to nothing substantial as of yet.
“[She] looked like a prisoner—it was horrible,” says one mother in the story who last saw her daughter in December 2016. “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.”
