His accusers said they were under orders to call him "Daddy," expected to jump and kiss him anytime he walked into a room, ordered to sign nondisclosure forms, and were subjected to threats and punishments such as violent spankings.



Some of the other troubling accusations: Kelly was accused of giving several victims herpes without disclosing he had an STD, coercing a teen boy to join him for sex with a naked girl, and shooting a shaming video of one alleged victim showing her smearing feces on her face as punishment for breaking his rules.



Kelly has also pleaded not guilty to sex-related charges in Illinois and Minnesota. Trial dates in those cases have yet to be set.
