ATLANTA — One of R. Kelly’s accusers is speaking out about abuse she says endured right here in metro Atlanta.
In an exclusive interview with Channel 2 Action News, Asante McGee told us the R&B star made her feel trapped inside his Johns Creek home.
McGee said she often cried because of what she went through. She said it was a feeling she couldn’t escape.
“He’s literally the devil,” she said.
McGee told Wilfon she was humiliated and often cried because of what she went through.
"I felt degraded to where I was crying at night because I was, like, 'I can't believe that I just actually did this and he doesn't see anything wrong with it,'" McGee said.
Years after Kelly was found not guilty of child pornography charges in a case that stemmed from an alleged sex tape with a minor, McGee said she met Kelly in 2013.
"The only stories I had heard about him is pretty much being a predator," McGee said. "I've heard of the sex tape, but I never saw the sex tape. So after his acquittal, I was, like, 'OK, maybe it wasn't him.'"
McGee said she was in her 30s when she first met Kelly, and at first, it was happy times.
"I pretty much traveled back and forth to whatever city he was at," she said.
But that all changed in 2016 when McGee said Kelly brought her and two other women to his Johns Creek home and started making odd demands, including what to call him.
"He told me when I go get clothes, to bring all of my stuff to his house, including my computer, because I'm going to live here with daddy," McGee said.
Wilfon asked McGee if she was given the choice whether to move in or not.
"He told me (I was moving in). That was not up for discussion," she said.
Over the three weeks she lived there, McGee said she felt trapped and sexually humiliated.
"When you're forced to do sexual things that you don't agree with, whether it's with him or on each other, it's like you're trying to tell him, no, you don't want to do it. But he's pretty much going to make you seem like this is the right thing to do and intimidate you as much as he can," McGee said.
McGee said she wouldn't call what happened in the house rape, but she would call it abuse.
"It was hell. It was a living hell," she said.
McGee is one of several women who have come forward with accusations against the singer in the new documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly."
"I want him to be held accountable and get the help that he needs," McGee said.
Last week, the parents of another alleged R. Kelly victim told Channel 2 Action News that the Fulton County District Attorney recently contacted them.
McGee said, so far, the DA has not contacted her.
A spokesperson for the Fulton County DA's office said they had no comment.
We called and emailed R. Kelly's attorney, but have not heard back. He has previously denied all accusations.
