Jerhonda Pace recently broke a nondisclosure contract R. Kelly had her sign and described the sexual abuse that she endured at the singer’s hands. She describes how she met him after one of his child pornography trials. She told him that she was 19, but later confessed that she was 16, even though she was only 15 when she met him. R. Kelly told her to just lie about her age, and he continued to have a sexual relationship with the minor.
She talked about some of the things that he put her through stating, “I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on,” after she was caught texting one of her friends. In regards to the women he currently has in his house, she said, “If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that’s what I will do.” She added, “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.” She continued, “I just really hope I can help these women out. Kelly needs to be stopped.”
The brave 23-year-old also talked about how she was “trained to please” R. Kelly. Jerhonda Pace said, “I went out there to his tour bus and you have him naked and you have her naked. And I’m looking like, ‘Okay, what is this?” She continued, “Because Rob Kelly is the one who took my virginity, so I was like, ‘What’s going on?’ And he said, ‘Don’t worry about it.’ I guess he saw that I was looking uneasy. I wanted to know, ‘what am I doing?” She added, “That’s when he told me to look at her and said, ‘She’s going to teach you everything you need to know. She’s going to please you.’ He told me to remove my clothes.”
She also talked about how she escaped from him. She explained that R. Kelly was preparing for a party and she told him that she wanted to go over to her uncle’s house to grab a pair of shoes. He told her that she needed to return immediately after she got them. Oftentimes, the women held at his house would go weeks at a time without being allowed to leave the house. She said, “At that moment, I knew when I got out the house, I wasn’t going back. I refused. I left everything behind and never looked back.”
An alleged confidant said, “R. Kelly could be in real trouble if the feds begin investigating him. What they find could put him away for a long time!” The informant also mentioned that R. Kelly’s sex dungeon was “heavily guarded.” At the sex dungeon, R. Kelly forced underage girls to participate in orgies and fetish spankings.
K. Michelle also spoke out against R. Kelly. In regards to the allegations, she said, “I’m not surprised by them. I’m actually going to be speaking more about it because I do feel like it’s my obligation as a woman to tell the truth and to do right by other females that are in the business and all these young women who don’t have a voice.”
She continued, “So it’s been something that’s been toying and been really stressing me and I’ve been going back and forth with how to speak about it and how to do right for those girls and read some comments about one of the accusers.” K. Michelle went on to say, “I went to a blog and I saw women tearing this little girl up. And it immediately brought tears to my eyes because I remember what that was like trying to tell about my abuse.”
