Still, all the women said to be in the Trapped In The Closet singer's circle are of consenting age, with the youngest being 18 years old.
The concerned mum and dad, named in the report only as J. and Tim, have filed a report with Johns Creek Police Department accusing Kelly, full name Robert Sylvester Kelly, of keeping their daughter as part of a "cult" and accusing him of being "abusive and of "controlling her daughter".
The young women who live with R. Kelly, according to DeRogatis, must also wear jogging suits because he "he doesn't want them to look appealing" and if they are too perceived to be too friendly with men who aren't Kelly he reportedly hits them.
But the difference in this particular case is that three former members of Kelly's inner circle - identified as Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee - have provided details that corroborate the parents' belief that their daughter is being manipulated.
Mack, Jones, and McGee claim that women who live with Kelly, who he calls his "babies, ' are required to call him "Daddy" and must ask his permission to leave the Chicago recording studio or their assigned rooms in the 'guest house" Kelly rents near his own rented mansion in suburban Atlanta.
Mack reportedly said: "You have to ask for food". You have to ask to go to the bathroom...
"Speaking to Buzzfeed, one was quoted as saying: "[Kelly] is a master at mind control.

It has Dual Pixel CMOS AF with phase-detection, which is an incredible thing for a camera as it makes it more accurate and fast. Alongside 1080p video recording at 60FPS, the EOS 6D Mark II is also capable of shooting timelapse videos at 4K resolution.
The article paints him as "a puppet master" who's been controlling every aspect of these women over the past few years. Police in both IL and Georgia have conducted welfare checks at both properties in the past year that have not brought any charges. She reportedly told the officers that she was "fine and did not want to be bothered".
One parent, whose 19-year-old daughter met Kelly backstage at a concert in 2015, discussed now realizing that what glitters isn't always gold. I don't know what to do. They said the daughter invited them to an R. Kelly concert in IN (they declined) and revealed Kelly had paid for her to have breast-enhancement surgery.
Civil lawyer Linda Mensch, who represents Kelly, told Buzzfeed in response to the allegations that he physically and mentally abuses women: "We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life".
Kelly has maintained he was never involved in any type of illegal sexual encounters with minors.
XXL has reached out to a rep for R. Kelly for comment.
Kitti Jones, who told Buzzfeed about her time living as one of Kelly's girls, said it was hard to leave his controlling atmosphere. It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down the guns; and embrace peace and love.
While Kelly has been the target of multiple accusations of sexual misconduct - in 1994, he married singer/protege Aaliyah when she was 15 years old; the marriage was annulled - the 2008 trial dragged on for six-and-a-half years and was further weakened by the judge's decision to focus exclusively on the sex tape and to exclude other claims.
