Asante McGee was one of the singer’s accusers featured in the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.” Her story of living in Kelly’s mansion in Johns Creek, Georgia, is what has prompted one of the multiple criminal investigations since the series aired early this month. She is now speaking out and telling more details of life with the singer.
“It was hell. It was living hell,” McGee told Channel 2 Action News. “He’s literally the devil. I felt degraded to where I was crying at night because I’m like I can’t believe that I just actually did this, and he doesn’t see anything wrong with it… 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 be living here with daddy. He told me (to move in with him). That was not up for discussion.”
McGee was in her mid-30s when she moved in with R. Kelly.
“When you’re forced to do sexual things that you don’t agree with, whether it’s with him or on each other,” she explained. “It’s like you’re trying to tell him, no — you don’t want to do it, but he’s like pretty much going to make you seem like this is the right thing to do … intimidate you as much as he can.”

McGee was reportedly being interviewed by police about her claims.
“The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office told me they have ‘no comment at this time’ about an active investigation into R. Kelly in response to the docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’” a reporter for HuffPost wrote. “The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office told me they have ‘no comment at this time’ about an active investigation into R.

In addition, Kelly was reportedly confronted by Chicago police on Jan. 11. Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, both of whose parents were featured in the docuseries, were allegedly questioned.
“Our sources say 5 officers came to the home and ordered Kelly into the other room while they questioned the women,” TMZ reported last week. “According to Chicago PD, both women said they were at the residence voluntarily and nothing untoward was going on. Police then left without incident.”
Savage’s and Clary’s parents claimed their daughters have been brainwashed.
