Cape Town - R Kelly is facing more serious allegations.

In a newly released BBC documentary, R Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, the 51-year-old has been accused of sexually abusing a girl since she was 14 years old by his former girlfriend, Kitti Jones.

According to The Guardian, Kitti, who dated the RnB singer from 2011 to 2013, claims that he groomed the teen and forced her to have sex with him and others on several occasions in a “sex dungeon”.

“I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words,” Kitti says.

“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’d been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets.”

The Ignition singer’s ex also alleges that he forced the teenager, whose name isn’t known, to “crawl’’ on the floor and to perform sexual acts on her.

"He had her crawl on the floor towards me and perform oral sex on me."

“How do you defend yourself against someone who's been honing their skills as a predator for 25 years, who's also a multimillionaire, and one of the most famous and successful artists in the music industry?” she says.

Kitti has previously spoken out about R Kelly, and says the singer was extremely abusive towards her, reports Variety.

“I think he gets some sort of satisfaction within himself, knowing that he’s taking control over other people,” she says.

Although the songwriter has faced numerous charges on similar allegations over the past 20 years, he’s yet to be convicted of any related crimes.
