Disturbing details about R&B singer R. Kelly are coming out of the closet in an upcoming BBC3 documentary where Kelly's ex-girlfriend accuses him of "training" a 14-year-old girl to be a sex slave. The singer first came under scrutiny for alleged sex crimes even before the current #MeToo movement.
During the latter half of 2017, several disturbing allegations of sexual abuse were levied at the singer including one that said he ran a "cult" that preys on young women. Another allegation by a woman named Kitti Jones said she was subject to physical and emotional abuse from Kelly while she was with him.

A documentary from BBC3 is set to air on March 28 and reveal startling details about Kelly's past including grooming underage victims for sexual acts. Jones dated the R&B singer for two years starting from 2011. During that time, Jones says she witnessed some disturbing things and she herself was a victim of his grooming.
Jones is the latest accuser who says the singer introduced her to a young unnamed "sex slave" sometime between 2011 and 2013. "I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words," she said. "I saw that she was dressed like me, that she was saying the things I’d say and her mannerisms were like mine. That’s when it clicked in my head that he had been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets."

Jones also described how Kelly forced the young girl, which he called his "fucking pet," to crawl around on the floor. She also says he forced the young sex slave to perform oral sex on him. Besides the abuse she witnessed, Jones described being abused herself in his "sex dungeon." Kelly adamantly denies any wrongdoing and the allegations against him.
