Kelly Accuser Comes Forward With Claims of Physical and Sexual Abuse

The shocking allegations, published by Rolling Stone, come months after a Buzzfeed investigative report alleging that Kelly has kept numerous women ostensibly hostage at his homes in Chicago and Atlanta, forcing them to comply with outrageous demands and robbing them of any personal freedoms, including when they can eat a meal or use the bathroom. A former radio host from Dallas, DJ Kitti Jones, claimed in a feature from Rolling Stone that her relationship with the singer had tenuous moments.

According to Jones, her relationship with him began when they met at a party in 2011.

Jones says that after Kelly moved to NY, she was made to live with two other girlfriends who were punished for attempting to leave his apartment - with constant monitoring and instructions that Kelly's male staff were not to interact with them. Representatives of the singer came out to unequivocally deny all of the accusations outright. I'm thinking we're going to hug or peck each other.

Jones also claims Kelly forced her to have sex with another woman and said he taped everything. She claims he said, "Bitch, don't you ever fucking accuse me of something like that", and repeatedly kicked her and slapped her in the face.

Jones moved to Chicago to live in Kelly's apartment in November 2011.

Jones claims that Kelly quickly began trying to control almost every aspect of her life-what she wore, who she spoke to- details that resonate with other victims' accounts.

Later that year, after falling for Kelly's vulnerability, Jones says she quit her job and moved into Kelly's apartment in Chicago. Presented with a list of Jones' allegations, a rep for Kelly said: "Mr. Kelly is aware of the repeated and now evolving claims of [Jones]".

"He videotapes everything that he does, and sometimes he'll just make you watch what he's done to other girls or girls that he had be together", she said. The DJ said she was a big fan of Kelly's work and missed the show. "By me being silent, it allowed him to feel untouchable, that he could keep things going as long as he could pay people off and put enough fear and shame in us that you would never speak on it again. When a person sees that you're not calling the police or the press on them ... it's like, 'Let me make my mark so you'll be afraid.' And it worked".

"I'm thinking, "I know he's not inviting me.' On the inside, I'm freaking out a little bit", Jones recalled". Other rules, as first reported by BuzzFeed, include calling Kelly "Daddy", looking down if other men are in the room, wearing baggy sweatpants, and providing constant updates on one's whereabouts via text. Things quickly took a unusual turn, though, when she texted him after their initial meeting and he responded by demanding she only refer to him as "daddy".

Jones says she eventually left in 2013 and that Kelly initially didn't react badly to her move, but the next time they met, she alleges that he attacked her.

"He was like a drill sergeant even when he was pleasuring me", Jones told Rolling Stone. "She trained me for everything I was doing". Jones thought it would be the start of an unprofessional relationship, so she left. Unlike the other young women Kelly had under his spell, Jones was a mother and divorcee of age with a bit of experience in life.

"I knew he wasn't going to kill me, but it was a lot of force", she said.
