Angela, one of the former backing dancers, told the court that R. Kelly kept her captive in his studio for several days. The American singer would also have raped her. She is now the tenth victim to tell her story in court. For example, she said that she met Kelly in 1991 when she was about 15 years old. Angela first saw the singer when one of her friends took her to a party at his Chicago apartment.
Angela was then asked to go to a separate room. There she suddenly came face to face with the singer. Not much later he asked her to sit on top of him. During her testimony, the backing dancer made it clear that she was hesitant at first to answer the singer’s question. But in the end she did what he asked of her. Kelly then allegedly abused her. Her testimony shows that there were also other women in the room. They were also in turn groped by the American singer.
After the party, Angela, along with her friend Tiffany, was still regularly invited by Kelly. In the years that followed, they saw each other almost daily. Angela even dropped out of college to pursue her singing career. Kelly had told her that a combination of the two was not possible.
Angela then worked as a backing dancer for Kelly in 1992 and 1993. During this period, the singer’s former employee was regularly seen punishing women who did not want to follow his rules. Angela also went on to say that Kelly introduced her to Aaliyah in 1992. Shortly after their meeting, he allegedly abused her on his tour bus. “His head was between her legs and he was giving her oral sex. She was only 13 years old at the time.”
