A New Woman Comes Forward Claiming She Had Sex With R Kelly When She Was 16 And Accuses Him Of Physical Abuse..
A woman by the name of Jerhonda Johnson-Pace claims when she was 16, she was traumatized by a sexual relationship with R Kelly.
He reportedly silenced her by giving her cash in exchange for signing nondisclosure agreements.
Pace tells Buzzfeed news that Kelly, “mentally and physically abuses the women closest to him.”
Pace’s story is different than previously reported accounts because she was underage when she and Kelly began a sexual relationship. Pace says she is talking now — and breaking a signed nondisclosure agreement — because she is concerned about women still living with Kelly in what police have been told is an abusive “cult,” as BuzzFeed News first reported last month. Pace says she’s particularly concerned about a friend she brought into Kelly’s circle when they were both teenagers and who multiple sources say still lives with Kelly
“If I can speak out and I can help them get out of that situation, that’s what I will do,” Pace says. “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.”
“I just really hope I can help these women out,” she says. “Kelly needs to be stopped.”
