In a BBC3 documentary it has been alleged that R Kelly groomed a 14-year-old girl to be his “fucking pet” and ordered her to crawl around and perform oral sex on him and others on request. The latest allegations are just another in a string of claims made by ex-girlfriends and others close to the singer.
New documentary ‘R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotape’ met with Kitti Jones who was vocal last year about her abuse and has been given the platform to speak more clearly.
She said: “I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words. 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 said Kelly made the unnamed woman “crawl on the floor towards me and perform oral sex on me, and he said, ‘This is my fucking pet, I trained her. She’s going to teach you how to be with me.’” It is currently unclear the age of the woman at this time.

Jones also says in the documentary that Kelly was “very abusive, physically, mentally, verbally. I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he’s taking control over other people.”
R Kelly has previously denied the claims stating he would “work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name”.
The documentary is an intriguing and ultimately disgusting view of a man who has not only been one of the most successful r’n’b singers of recent times, but also hurt and damaged so many young girls on his way to the top.
