The Second Installment
One woman, Jerhonda Pace, met Kelly in 2008 when she was just 17 years old. She was a huge fan and met him outside the courthouse after his his child pornography trial in Chicago. The two would eventually go on to have an intense and obsessive relationship in which Kelly preyed upon the young girl's love for him.
An Obsessive Relationship
Pace explains in the first episode of the three-part special that at the time, her love for Kelly was all-consuming, and he even manipulated her into agreeing to a suicide pact.
"With Rob, I was part of a suicide pact with him. And if anything was to happen to him, if he was to go to jail or someone was to harm him, I was supposed to kill myself. When the suicide pact came about, Rob and I was in the mirror room, and he told me if I was everything to him like I say he is, then there would be no life worth living. He said, 'if something happens to me, I want you to take these pills.'"
She continued, explaining that she was ready to do anything for him.
"When I was with him I was really ready to take my own life, because Rob was everything to me. Rob was my life."
"Robert did ask me to bring friends with me and I did bring friends with me. They always wound up having sex. Always. It always ended up that way… The first time I met with Robert after getting his phone number, I gathered some friends, we went to his apartment. We were all talking, laughing, you know everybody had fun… There was a lot of laughs, joking. There was a lot of fun. My friends were all in his bedroom… So I would go in and out of the room. And every time I went in there, he was having sex with someone."
He Needs To Be Held Accountable
The ultimate goal of the series is to hold R. Kelly accountable for his actions. Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represented Stormy Daniels and is suing Kelly on behalf of a number of his victims, explains in the special that Kelly cannot get off without punishment.
"People look at some of these allegations and they blame the parents or they blame girls. Where they should be blaming people is where the blame f**king belongs and that’s with R.Kelly and his enablers. Period."
