There are claims of R. Kelly abusing underage girls and running a “sex-cult” where he allegedly beats, starves, and holds women against their will. In June, R. Kelly was charged with 11 new counts of sexual abuse. That's in addition to the 10 counts he was charged with in February. He has pled not guilty to all counts. Jim DeRogatis has followed this story for at least 20 years, and details years of horrific conduct in the new book “Soulless: The Case Against R. Kelly.”
