A new accuser has testified against R Kelly in his on going trial. Claiming that the American singer abused him when she was only 16, Jerhonda Johnson Pace who is now 28, testified that she was such a big fan of the R & B Singer, so much that she attended a previous trial against him in 2008 where R Kelly had been charged with child pornography. The singer was acquitted of the charges in the same year.
Pace accused the singer of inviting her to his house in Chicago in 2009 where he had a sexual relationship with her. Pace is one of the participants in the highly criticized documentary ‘surviving R Kelly’, which was first released in January 3, 2019. “I was not supposed to tell anyone I was spending time with him”, she said. She added that he did not allow her to use a cell phone. She was only supposed to talk to him.
According to CNN , leaving her room was also not allowed. She went further and testified that the singer once chocked her until she passed out after slapping her. This was in 2010 after Pace failed to acknowledge him when he came into a room. After she regained consciousness R Kelly spit on her face after which she performed oral sex on him. He ejaculated on her face.
R Kelly ,54 has pleaded not guilty to all his charges which include kidnapping, bribery, child trafficking across states, sexual exploitation, child pornography among others.
