R. Kelly has denied the allegations that he's been holding six women against their will in some sort of "abusive cult."
The story broke Monday morning. A Buzzfeed article detailed a supposed cult that the R&B singer has been heading, keeping women in rented homes in Chicago and Atlanta where he controls their every move. Parents of some of the women being held hostage were the ones to come forward.
However, according to TMZ, a rep for Kelly has made a statement denying his involvement. "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name."
Cops in both Georgia and Illinois conducted welfare checks on one of the women at her parents' request.
According to docs, the woman told deputies she was fine and "did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people."
This keeps getting weirder...
