A woman has come forward with details on how R. Kelly tried unsuccessfully to get her to run off and be with him by promising to help her career.
The woman, who has not been named, told TMZ she met Kelly when she was 20 years old at one of his concerts late last year.
During the performance, a member of the R&B star’s crew spotted her and handed over a wristband so she could get backstage once the show was over.
The unidentified woman took the offer and was thrilled to meet the then-49-year-old singer.
She also posted a picture of the wristband to social media at the time, along with the caption: ‘When the guy on stage give you a wrist band to go backstage and hang with R Kelly after the show.’
She told TMZ Kelly gave her his phone number, and they chatted on and off for a period of time. The singer also allegedly told the young woman he would help her build a career as a model and an actress.
She then went on to allege Kelly invited her to his home in Georgia, telling her she had to wear ‘something sexy’.
During her visit, the woman – and a friend who went with her – allegedly were not allowed to use their phones, and at one point the young fan was ‘escorted’ into Kelly’s bedroom.
While inside, the singer allegedly ‘asked her to strut around and pose like a model’ and requested she let him take intimate photographs of her.
The woman told TMZ she was given $200 as she left the Georgia property, and was instructed to: ‘use it to buy black lingerie, heels and red lipstick for her next visit’.
The 20-year-old went on to tell the gossip website she visited Kelly’s home on two more occasions, however a later incident put an end to their contact.
She claimed Kelly became more and more controlling with each visit, and even ‘guilted her’ into posing for naked photos.
The woman told TMZ the Ignition star then asked her to fly to Los Angeles to be with him – he was allegedly providing a one-way ticket, but after telling her mother about the plan, it was stopped.
She credits her mother for being the one to intervene and put a stop to R. Kelly’s predatory ways.
The woman tells us she met the singer backstage at one of his shows in December after getting a wristband from someone in his crew. She was 20 at the time.
The woman says Kelly asked her to strut around and pose like a model … and convinced her to take sexy photos. She says he paid her $200 when she left and told her to use it to buy black lingerie, heels and red lipstick for her next visit … which she did.
We’re told she went back to R. Kelly’s place 2 more times — alone — but each time he got more aggressive and controlling … even guilting her into posing nude. She says they never had sex.
She says the last straw was him sending her a one-way ticket to be with him back in L.A. in February, warning her not to bring a friend. She says she felt uneasy and told her mother, who promptly put the kibosh on the trip.
