Woman Details Violent Teenage Sexual Relationship With R. Kelly
By now, it’s clearly no secret that R. Kelly likes his women VERY young, and in many cases, well under the legal age of consent.
A woman who previously supported R. Kelly at his 2008 trail as a 15-year-old self-proclaimed “super fan” of the singer has now come forward with her own account of a traumatizing sexual relationship with the singer, detailing how he was able to twist her young mind and secure her silence with legal scare tactics, blackmail, and cash payouts over the course of 7 months when she was just 16 years old.
Buzzfeed caught up with Jerhonda Pace, now a 24-year-old married mother of three, who provided extensive documentation proving the validity of her story, including multiple signed non-disclosure agreements and receipts from settlement payouts, and even sat for a polygraph test.
She says she is coming forward with her story in the interest of helping the multiple young women currently living in R. Kelly’s abusive “sex cult,” including a friend of hers who she brought into the circle when they were still just in high school, whom sources claim still lives with the singer.
Jerhonda claims that she first met Kelly while skipping school to attend his very public child pornography trial back in 2008. After getting his autograph at the courthouse, she claims one of his assistants reached out to her on MySpace and invited her to the singer’s home for a party. She lied to her parents and attended. It was there that Kelly exchanged numbers with her, and later invited him back to his home, alone, at a later date.
Of course, the star struck teen accepted his invitation. Unsurprisingly, she reports that Kelly almost instantly made creepy sexual demands and advances, before essentially blackmailing her into silence by making her sign false documents.
On June 5, 2009, Pace says Kelly invited her to come back to his mansion and sent an employee to pick her up in a black SUV. “He told me that he wanted me to undress for him [and] walk back and forth like I was modeling,” she says. The two then had oral sex and, Pace said in interviews with BuzzFeed News and her 2010 polygraph interview, Kelly made his first attempt to ensure that she did not talk about their sexual relationship by having her write out and sign letters stating that she had stolen jewelry and cash from him and that her parents had set her up to blackmail him. Pace says she did as instructed, but none of the charges were true.
