A 24-year-old mother of three has accused R. Kelly of paying her for years to keep an alleged underage sexual relationship between the two secret. Jerhonda Pace says she met the star at his 2008 child pornography trial when she was 15 years old and known by her maiden name, Jerhonda Johnson, BuzzFeed reports. The two then began a sexual relationship when she was 16, she says, and Kelly allegedly became controlling and abusive. The accuser says Kelly was aware she was underage and urged her to lie and tell people she was older if anyone asked, according to the report. After ongoing sexual relations with the singer, she said, she broke things off in 2010 after things got violent. “I was slapped and I was choked and I was spit on,” she told BuzzFeed. She said she is speaking out for the first time and violating a signed nondisclosure agreement because of her fears for women now living with Kelly, including a friend she introduced to Kelly as a teen and who allegedly still lives with the singer. “I know speaking out against Kelly, Kelly could sue me. But I’m really not worried about it anymore,” she told BuzzFeed.
