New R. Kelly Accuser Alleges Starvation, Beatings at Hands of R&B Star

Kitti Jones joins a growing list of women who have accused Kelly of having abusive relationships with women, allegedly manipulating them and forcing them to follow a freaky set of rules on how they have to act, according to an interview with Rolling Stone.

In that interview, Jones revealed that the women who live with Kelly are required to call him "Daddy", and that he controls all aspects of their lives - including their sexual activity, which he films.

Following her relationship with Kelly, Jones began a non-profit organization named Stop Protecting Your Abuser, which allowed her to voice her past struggles with physical abuse.

Billboard reached out to Kelly's reps for comment.

A representative for Kelly denied "any claim of wrongdoing or any kind of mistreatment" by the artist to Rolling Stone.

His most recent piece for BuzzFeed in July claimed that R Kelly was running an abusive cult, with three sets of parents alleging that their daughters had been "brainwashed" by the singer who was now controlling their lives, down to what they eat and wear, and when they sleep and bathe.

"I can either kill myself or kill him", Jones told Rolling Stone she remembered thinking in August 2013. A month after moving, she alleges that Kelly assaulted her after she brought up his 2008 child pornography case.

"He would start kicking me, telling me I was a stupid b**** [and] don't ever get in his business", said Jones. "He just turned into a monster". She said she quit her radio job in 2011 to live with him in Chicago.

In 2002, Chicago police opened an investigation into Kelly after a now-infamous videotape was sent anonymously to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Unknowing to Jones, this night would begin, what she describes as her mentally and sexually abusive relationship with Kelly. "This is my pet, '" she says. She also had to stand whenever Kelly entered a room. His lawyer at the time, John M. Touhy, claimed the tape was a fake.

Jones said she first met Kelly in June 2011 while working an after-party for one of his concerts in Texas.

Jones told the magazine that the first time it happened, Kelly had a woman crawl on her hands and knees to Jones and give her oral sex. "I feel some sense of responsibility with the girls in the house now", Jones tells RS. "I didn't know what he meant by 'raised" at the time. "So him taking me on that tour was like, 'Let me make sure I treat this one a certain way'".

But a honeymoon period would follow episodes of abuse, leading Jones to believe Kelly was sorry. According to Jones, she called Joycelyn but is no longer in touch with the family.

The woman claimed that only two months after they started interacting, R Kelly paid her to visit him in Denver, and as soon as she arrived at his home, he started masturbating right in front of her. Starvation, keeping them from contact with other men, lying about relationships with other women, forcing women to have sex with in each other and regular beatings if they questioned his actions.

"He was like "B*t*h, I'm not giving you shit" and he was just attacking me", Jones said. I've trained this b*tch.

At one point, Jones tells Rolling Stone, she considered suicide, or murder.

Over the next year, Jones says, Kelly's physical abuse occurred more and more frequently.

After that, Jones moved in with Kelly in Chicago where things only went downhill. He brushed past me, I'm thinking we're going to hug or peck each other.
