Cape Town – In another article written by Buzzfeed’s Jim DeRogatis, a woman has come forward to tell her story of having an underage sexual relationship with singer R Kelly.

This comes after a July investigative report by Buzzfeed saying that Kelly is reportedly holding women against their will in a sexual and abusive cult.

The latest woman to come forward is 24-year-old mother of three, Jerhonda Pace, who says she was 15 years old when she first met her idol Kelly outside court during his child pornography trial.

Pace claims that she was underage when she began a sexual relationship with Kelly, and that she accepted cash settlements from the singer to sign non-disclosure agreements. 

On her first visit she reportedly had to undress and model for Kelly after which they had oral sex. On her second visit Pace claims that Kelly gave her alcohol, which she wasn’t used to, and then they had sex. It was the 24-year-old's first time having sex. She told Buzzfeed that her being a virgin excited Kelly.

Pace also revealed that Kelly filmed all their encounters without her permission and that she had to wear two pigtails and find little schoolgirl outfits to wear. She also had to call him "daddy".

Pace says that although she will be breaking her non-disclosure agreement, she is speaking out now to help other women who are still living with Kelly.

R Kelly’s representatives released a statement on Tuesday morning denying Pace’s allegations.
