Joycelyn Savage, one of R. Kelly’s live in girlfriends, has spoken out about the abuse she suffered while living with the singer. She’s said that she’s “risking her life” and breaking non-disclosure agreements in order to tell her story, but that she should’ve told it a long time ago.
Joycelyn, who’s 24 now, has started posting her story on Pateron – beginning with meeting R. Kelly when she was 19. She talks about how he gave her gifts and spent money on her, all the while promising her a music career of her own.
Pretty soon, he started “giving [her] commands” to call him Master or Daddy. She alleges that once she accidentally called him ‘babe’ instead of Master or Daddy. She says “he grabbed me and choked me until I blacked out.”
She talks about how she was manipulated and controlled in every aspect of her life.
“Robert likes to manipulate whoever he’s was in the room with even down to his own assistant. He didn’t care, everyone was in it for a check so they didn’t care either.”
“I can say I didn’t have any type of privacy at all now that I think of it. If I showered one of his assistant would have to be by the door while I shower.”
Joycelyn has been referred to by a lot of outlets as R. Kelly’s “sex slave” before, and she says she was pretty much used for sex or as a “punching bag”. She also says that “I’ve been peed on numerous of times. I really didn’t want to say this but the truth needs to be heard.”
Joycelyn even writes about an abortion she was forced to get outside of a medical centre in 2016. “I realized I was pregnant by this monster. Eventually, I ended up getting an abortion I was forced to get the surgery done at his house.”
Currently, R. Kelly is locked up in a Chicago prison. His lawyer is denying everything on his behalf.
