A woman who says her daughter was with R. Kelly for several years is opening up about how she got her back.
Michelle Kramer told “Dateline NBC” her daughter Nika first became enamored with the singer after seeing him in concert when she was about 11 or 12. Kramer says Nika met R. Kelly when she was 17 and began a sexual relationship with him and told her she was in love with him.
Kramer says she agreed to keep the relationship a secret out of fear of losing her daughter but Nika eventually moved in with Kelly and cut off all contact with her family.
After not seeing each other for three years, Kramer eventually tracked her daughter down at a hotel with Lifetime’s camera crew in tow.
Kramer says when they met, it did not go as she expected: “Nike came in and said, ‘Let’s go.’ And I said, ‘Let’s go?’ I’m thinking we’re just going to have lunch. And she said, ‘No, let’s go.’ And we ran out of there like I was Harriet Tubman freeing a slave.”
In another interview, Jerhonda Pace says she had a sexual relationship with Kelly and says she has DNA evidence — in the form of spit and DNA — on a blue t-shirt of hers that she kept.
R. Kelly has denied all allegations against him.
