Another day and another accuser has come out against R. Kelly.
It was only a few months ago when Jerhonda Pace appeared on The Real, claiming she was “trained” to please the 50-year-old singer. Now a Texas DJ is alleging a similar relationship.
Kitti Jones reportedly dated Kelly from 2011 to 2013. They met at an after party in Dallas and exchanged phone numbers. Jones told Rolling Stone their relationship was riddled with, “alleged physical abuse, sexual coercion, emotional manipulation and a slew of draconian rules that dictated nearly every aspect of her life…what and when to eat, how to dress, when to go to the bathroom and how to perform for the singer sexually.”
The magazine also reports, “It was in September 2011, during Jones’ first trip to Chicago to visit Kelly at his Trump Tower apartment, that she began noticing odd incidents. After Jones texted Kelly that the driver arrived at the airport on time, Jones alleges Kelly told her not to speak to him and inform the singer if the driver talked to her. It was part of a pattern, Jones later realized, of male figures in Kelly’s orbit avoiding interacting with any woman around the singer. Jones recalls stumbling on a stair that night and watching two male employees nearby not flinch. “They knew not to talk to me or help or anything,” she says.
In 2011 Jones quit her job and moved to Chicago where the singer agreed to double her salary, but alluded to his relationship with other women, “He said, ‘I have friends and I have girls I’ve raised,'” Jones recalls. “I didn’t know what he meant by ‘raised’ at the time. He said, ‘I eventually want you to meet them, but I want to make sure you’re mentally ready for that.'”
In 2012 he took Jones on the Single Ladies tour and even included her in his infamous cage skit.

And in case you’re wondering if Jones could get into legal trouble for sharing the details of her relationship with the singer, she never signed a non-disclosure. And although there are no legal cases pending against Kelly, Jones’ lawyer says she exploring her options.
