Episode 248,  Jun 02, 07:00 AM

In 2021, a 51-year-old man referred to as “Daddy” by the followers of his alleged sex cult, was found guilty of 8 counts of sex trafficking. 

Breaking any of Daddy’s rules would result in brutal punishment; including beatings, solitary confinement, and starvation. 

“Daddy” kept his victims – most of them teenagers – locked up in his mansion. And all the while, he was topping music charts across the world with his era-defining R&B hits…

This is the story of the rise and fall of Robert Sylvester Kelly.
