R. Kelly isn’t the only one denying rumors that he’s been holding young girls hostage in an abusive sex cult at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago. One of the alleged victims of Kelly’s rumored sex cult is speaking out, saying that the disturbing claims against the music legend are totally untrue.
Jocelyn Savage, 21, whose family accused R. Kelly of holding their daughter hostage, says that she’s perfectly happy and safe — although she won’t reveal her whereabouts. She told TMZ, “I’m 21, I’m about to be 22 in a few days and I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I’m not being brainwashed or anything like that. It just came to a point where it definitely has got out of hand. I’m totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at and everything is okay with me.”
Savage said of her parents, “I’m very heartbroken over what’s going on with this situation because it’s getting to a point where it’s getting too much. It’s just not right.” When asked if she was being held involuntarily, she said, “Oh no, nothing like that. I’ve never felt like a hostage or anything like that.” However, Jocelyn will not confirm whether or not she’s in a relationship or dating the 50-year-old singer.
Her father Timothy believes she is suffering Stockholm Syndrome, a condition which sees hostages grow to love their captors. According to Buzzfeed reporter Jim Derogatis, who first reported the story, R. Kelly is currently being investigated by the FBI.
