An Ex of R. Kelly's, Azriel Clary, has come forward with some more allegations against the singer, R. Kelly. She claims that many women, who are victims of R. Kelly's, will never come forward with their accusations because of blackmail.

Clary makes bold statements about R. Kelly in an interview with The Sun. She claims many women were filmed performing sexual acts with minors. The 22 year old claims “I think that there's hundreds of victims out there."

A big accusation.

"Robert has his live-in girlfriends, he has girlfriends in every city. He has flings in every city." she continues.

Calling him out further, “There's usually three main cities in every state. So three times 50 - that lets you know how many women are probably out there and that's probably not even hitting it on the nail."

In regards to the blackmail allegations, “For the most part he blackmails everyone. He makes everyone do very degrading stuff, whether on film or writing it down, he makes them sign it."

Women are Afraid to Speak Up

“And I think a lot of women are ashamed or embarrassed to come out because of stuff like that because it'll be incriminating them - there's so much stuff. He has letters of people saying that they've stolen from him."

She continues, “He has letters from people saying that they've been molested or touched by their parents or their brothers or a family member. He even has people on film molesting their younger nieces or younger brothers."

This is a big deal!

“And so I know a lot of women out there are too embarrassed, humiliated, and ashamed to come out because this man had that much power to control them, to make them molest their younger niece or to molest their younger brother."

She goes on, explaining how she would handle the situation had she gone through this, “Personally had I ever done anything like that, I would be entirely too ashamed to come forward. Thankfully, I've never been in that situation. But have I seen it done to other women? Yes, I have.”

"Then he beat me with a shoe"

Kelly's lawyer claims all the statements made by Clary are NOT true. However, Kelly was arrested following child pornography charges, and Clary's claims both line up and echo back to his original charges.

Clary goes on, telling about her experiences being with this man. In reference to staying in contact with old high school friends, he beat her.

“I was just in communication with two of my girlfriends and he made me text them a very long lie, basically saying why I no longer wanted to be friends with them. And then he beat me, he abused me verbally and then he beat me physically.

"Then he beat me with a shoe - a size 12, Nike Air Force One shoe. And he beat me all over, it felt like hours and I was covered in welts all the way from my neck down."
