Sex trafficking in the U.S. is a national epidemic—one that R&B crooner R. Kelly, who can be heard
on Bishop Marvin Sapp’s new single, “Listen,” is accused of being a party to.
As loyal gospel fans become aware of the collaboration first reported by KRNB.com, some are
asking, shouldn’t a man suspected of luring underage women into his “sex cult” and abusing them,
be banned from the Christian pastor’s album?
The outcries only grew louder after the story of a young woman named Jerhonda Pace began
The woman claiming to have been victimized by Kelly in her teens appeared on an episode of The
Real, Monday, Sept. 18.
In an emotional sit-down interview, the now 24-year-old told co-hosts Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-
Housley, Loni Love and Adrienne Houghton that Kelly, 50, deflowered her at 16, “trained” her to
satisfy him sexually, and also physically abused her.
According to Pace, she eventually escaped her predator whom she met at 15 while he was on trial
for charges of child pornography in 2008. Her story follows numerous accusations of sexual
misconduct against him.
Kelly previously denied the “sex cult” allegations.
