Jerhonda Pace is speaking out.
As previously reported, Pace came forward last month via an interview with Buzzfeed, claiming to have had a sexual relationship with R. Kelly as a minor and detailing the singer's disturbing demands. The 24-year-old stated that in addition to being physically abused by Kelly, she had to ask his permission to eat, use the bathroom, or leave the house.
"I had to call him 'daddy,' and he would call me 'baby.' He wanted me to have two pigtails, and I had to go out and find little schoolgirl outfits," Pace said.
Pace delved further into their relationship during her appearance on The Real on Monday. During what was her first televised interview, Pace described her life as part of Kelly's alleged sex cult, including her experiences being "trained" at 16 by another woman on how to please Kelly sexually.
"I went out there to his tour bus and you have him naked and you have her naked," she said of the day she first met the woman who "trained" her. "And I'm looking like, 'Okay, what is this?' Because Rob [Kelly] is the one who took my virginity, so I was like, 'Um, yeah, so, what's going on?' And he's like, 'Don't worry about it.' I guess he saw that I was looking uneasy and I wanted to know what am I doing. That's when he told me to look at her and he said, 'She's going to teach you everything you need to know. She's going to please you.' He told me to remove my clothes and that's when me and her engaged in sexual activity."
Pace also described how she finally escaped by coming up with a lie that would get her out of Kelly's house; she made up a story about retrieving shoes from her uncle's home, which Kelly agreed to, on the condition that she come right back. That wasn't part of Pace's plan, though.
"At that moment, I knew when I got out the house, I wasn't going back. I refused. I left everything behind and never looked back," Pace explained.
