The parents of one woman aged 21 told BuzzFeed that their daughter has been “brainwashed” by Kelly since she met him following a concert in March 2015. The woman, who identified herself as Jocelyn Savage to TMZ Monday, is reported to have moved in with Kelly and broken off contact with her parents.
“It was as if she was brainwashed. She looked like a prisoner. It was horrible. I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she’s in love and is the one who cares for her. I don’t know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults,” J. said. “They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.”
“You know the reason why Ms. Jocelyn Savage didn’t tell you where her location at? She’s not allowed to tell you her location,” Savage said. “Mr. R. Kelly, if you want to file a lawsuit, you should’ve filed it yesterday. I’m waiting on you. File the lawsuit.”
“I’m 21, I’m about to be 22 in five days and I just mainly want to say that I’m in a happy place with my life and I’m not being brainwashed or anything like that,” Savage said. “It just came to a point where it definitely has gotten out of hand, so I just want everybody to know, my parents and everybody in the world that, I am totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at and everything is okay with me.”
Earlier, Mack, Jones, and McGee said there are at least six women living in properties rented by the R&B star in Chicago and Atlanta. The ‘guest houses’ where the women are kept are near his home in suburban Atlanta, and his apartment at Trump Tower in Chicago.
Officers in Georgia and Illinois conducted welfare checks for one of the women after receiving a request from her parents, TMZ reported. However, the woman told officers she “did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people.”
