It’s only day 4 in the R. Kelly trial and, let’s just say, “s**t is getting wild.”
A woman, choosing to identify herself as “Jane Doe #5” took the stand and gave a shocking testimony in front of the judge and jury. The testimony, according to The Daily Beast, detailed a horrendous five-year relationship between R. Kelly and the now 23-year-old woman.
“Jane” testified of the abject singer’s controlling ways but first gave an explanation as she met R. Kelly. The two met at the Orlando, Florida stop of his “Black Panties” tour. Claiming that she was 17-years-old at the time, “Jane” admits that she was not truthful about her age initially, and wanted only to audition forh Kelly.
However, “Jane” said that she her intentions were thwarted when R. Kelly switched gears. She says the singer “peer-pressured” her into having him perform a sex act on her. Soon, their sexual relationship would continue and would turn into a controlling and abusive ride.
Much like previous testimonies, “Jane Doe #5” also testified of contracting herpes from the R. Kelly. She described after a few months she began to experience “discomfort in my pelvis and lower abdomen.”
“It got to the point where I couldn’t even physically walk,” the woman said. After finally visiting a doctor, “Jane” discovered that she contracted herpes. She testified that R. Kelly became upset when she alerted him of the news.
More testimony from Jane included excruciating details of the harrowing abuse she received at his hand, including an abortion in 2017 because he didnt want children with her. Jane also states that during one encounter, R. Kelly “punished” her by making her rub feces on her face, and also forced her to eat it.
It’s to be noted that Jane Doe #5’s testimony is similar to the previous account of R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend, Azriel Cleary. R. Kelly’s New York trial is ongoing, and is slated to last for a month.
