R. Kelly has been accused of holding six women against their will in what has been described as a "cult." According to a BuzzFeed News report, the mothers of three young women accuse R. Kelly of predatory behavior towards their daughters. The singer apparently abuses them physically and verbally. The women have to ask permission to leave the house and are not allowed to contact their families. Three former members of the singer's entourage back up these allegations. Several of the women's parents have gone to the police to try and get their daughters back. No arrests have been made as the women are of legal age and have claimed they are not being held against their will.
