His family were also mean to her and would monitor her shower time and how much hot water she used, the court documents alleged. This probably doesn't even fall in this woman's list of reasons, who divorced her husband for ignoring her text messages.

Mack told Buzzfeed numerous young women are sucked in by the singer because they think: "This is R. Kelly, I'm going to live a lavish lifestyle".

"I only want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that", she said, while declining to answer more detailed questions about her conditions. "I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that".

Some of the parents reported their concerns to the police, but the women said they were not being held against their will. By the voice of his spokesman, the singer has of course refuted these charges: "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations that are attributed to him".

In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges after he was accused of having sex with an underage girl and filming it. A past that is already very loaded (in 1994, he married the singer Aaliyah, when she was only 15 years old), the singer of the tube I Believe I Can Fly was quickly immersed in the turmoil.

BuzzFeed News, which quoted people close to Kelly, described him as a cult-like figure and said that women allegedly under his spell included aspiring musicians.
