R. Kelly was kicked out of his Duluth mansion earlier this week. The singer reportedly failed to pay his rent on the property.
On Tuesday, Kelly was given an eviction notice after he failed to pay over $20,000 in rent and over $2,000 in late fees. Sources revealed that the singer's Duluth mansion appeared to have been abandoned since the rooms were considerably bare.
Did R. Kelly Run A Sex Cult?
Last year, Kelly faced some financial troubles after he was accused of leading a sex cult inside the mansion. The parents of the women Kelly allegedly brainwashed wanted their daughters to return home. One of the moms even said that Kelly was in a relationship with her daughter.
"She looked like a prisoner — it was horrible. 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. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening," said the woman who only identified herself as J.
The concerned mom revealed that her daughter was just 19 years old when she first met Kelly during his show in 2015. Within the next two years, the woman's family only heard from her a few times through text. Since the woman is already considered an adult, she was not viewed as a missing person.
Other accusers claimed that Kelly controls everything inside his alleged sex palace, which includes the food the women eat as well as their sexual encounters. The encounters are reportedly recorded so that Kelly and his friends could watch them later on.
R. Kelly Denies Accusations
Kelly has denied the allegations through his lawyer, Linda Mensch, who said that the accusations were an attempt at defaming the singer.
"It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down the guns; and embrace peace and love. I suppose that is the price of fame. Like all of us, Mr. Kelly deserves a personal life. Please respect that," said Mensch.
Jerhonda Pace's Allegations
The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer was also accused of physical abuse and underage sex. Kelly's ex-girlfriend, Jerhonda Pace, said that the singer slapped and choked her. She also said that Kelly spit on her.
"I know speaking out against Kelly, Kelly could sue me. But I'm really not worried about it anymore," said Pace.
