R. Kelly has been on the defensive all month with different allegations that he was involved in starting a cult-like enviornment with several women, including abusing some mentally and physical, as well as allegations that he has knowingly slept with underage women.
Earlier this week, Buzzfeed followed up with another article as a woman by the name of Jerhonda Pace met R. Kelly at 16-years-old back in 2008 as she supported him throughout his sexual assault trial, and later engaged in a sexual relationship with Kellz. She alleges that later the two came to a settlement in exchange of a non-disclosure agreement.
R. Kelly responded to the allegations through his publicist Trevian Kutti to CNN in which he denied any of the claims.
“The allegations against Mr. Kelly are false, and are being made by individuals known to be dishonest. It is clear these continuing stories are the result of the effort of those with personal agendas who are working in concert to interfere with and damage his career,” it began. “Mr. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation.”
Earlier this year, he went on Instagram to formally deny any of the allegations of late.
