Another woman has come forward with sex allegations against R&B singer R. Kelly.
Jehonda Pace, now 24, was 16-years-old when she had a sexual relationship with R. Kelly. She first met Kelly in 2008 during his child pornography trials in Chicago. In 2009 the Grammy award winning singer invited Pace to his house.
At no point between the time the met and the time she went to his house did Kelly ask her age according to the New York Daily.
During their 8-month relationship, Pace accuses the singer of mentally and physically abusing her. In July of 2009, Pace says she told R. Kelly that she was 16 to which he told her to lie and say that she was 19 so that she was legal.
While living with him, Pace states that she had to follow a set of rules. She could only wear baggy clothes and had to ask for permission to eat, shower and use the bathroom.
The situation became violent in 2010 when Kelly caught Pace texting her friends. In an interview with Buzzfeed, she said, “I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on.”
Pace is now coming forward like others in the midst of the recent allegations and investigations on R. Kelly.
