Jones, who allegedly dated Kelly between 2011-2013, says she was groomed and forced to have have sex with him and other men in a "sex dungeon" on multiple occasions during their relationship.

Speaking to the BBC, she said: “I was introduced to one of the girls, that he told me he ‘trained’ since she was 14, those were his words. I saw that she was dressed like me, that she was saying the things I’d say and her mannerisms were like mine. That’s when it clicked in my head that he had been grooming me to become one of his pets. He calls them his pets.”

Jones previously told Rolling Stone that the singer starved her and forced her to have sex with other women during their time together.

R. Kelly was contacted about the issues raised in the film but his representatives told the BBC he would make no comment. Kelly has previously denied all claims made against him, calling them false and defamatory.

R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes is available to watch now. Check out a trailer below.
