    NEW YORK – The american singer of rhythm & blues, R. Kelly denied Monday accusations that it would keep six young women, into slavery, controlling all aspects of their life.

    The famous singer of 50 years, in particular known for the song “I Believe I can Fly”, stated that it was “alarmed and disturbed” by the accusations made by the site Buzzfeed, according to her lawyer, Linda Mensch.

    “Mr. Kelly denies firmly these charges and will work diligently and vigorously to prosecute his accusers and clear his name”, she said in a commmuniqué.

    Buzzfeed News said on Monday that six young women were living in a house near Atlanta and in a studio in Chicago under the total domination of R. Kelly who decides what they eat, the clothing they wear and would have sex with them.

    According to Buzzfeed, these women would be trained musicians that the singer would keep under his grip as the guru of a sect.

    R. Kelly is “a master of mind control”, told Buzzfeed Cheryl Mack, presented as being a former assistant of the singer, according to which this last would require, for instance, women stand facing the wall when other men are in the same room.

    The parents of one of the young women held a press conference Monday in front of the house of the singer in Atlanta, and have said that their daughter, aged 22 years, had cut off contact with them.

    “My daughter suffered a serious brain-washing,” said the mother, Jonjelyn Savage. “We just want it to break and the leaves to continue his life.”

    But the daughter, Jocelyn Savage, has denied any constraint. “I would just like to say that I live a life very happy and that I suffered no brain washing or anything of this kind”, she said in a video interview at the site people TMZ, while refusing to answer more specific questions about his situation.

    According to Buzzfeed, the police investigated those allegations but no action was taken against the singer, believing that it was of relationships consenting between adults.

    This is not the first time that R. Kelly is hit by a scandal. In 2008, the Chicago Sun-Times had accused him of having sexual relations with a minor, but the singer had been acquitted by the court.
