R. Kelly denies sexual misconduct allegations, alleged victim speaks out

R Kelly has denied claims made against him that he is holding women in a "brainwashed" cult.

A Buzzfeed report, published on Monday (July 17), says that a number of women got close to Kelly in order to help their own musical careers, and now their parents say they have not seen them for months. Some of the routines allegedly controlled include rules over what to eat, how to dress, sleeping routines and how they engage in sex.

"Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him," his attorney, Linda S. Mensch, said in a statement obtained by The Times. "Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name."

One of the women, Jocelyn Savage, has also denied that she has been brainwashed, telling TMZ: "I'm in a happy place in my life. I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that."
