R. Kelly is calling the allegations he may be running a cult “a bunch of crap.”
The R&B star posted a video to Twitter on Thursday night slamming speculation that he’s dictating the lives of multiple women and confirms he will be coming to the East Coast for a string of concerts.
“Despite all of the crap y’all hearing I will be coming to the East Coast to do my shows,” he says in the blurry video. “And believe me y’all, it’s a bunch of crap.”
The “crap” the “Ignition” singer is referring to stems from a recent report posted by BuzzFeed in which three women claiming to be part of Kelly’s inner circle allege he’s been keeping up to six women in his Chicago and Atlanta homes. He was accused of dictating what the women wear, eat and do sexually.

After the reports began circulating, Kelly shared an inspirational quote to his Twitter account.
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today,” the quote, which was posted as a photo, read.
