Porsha Williams isn't holding anything back with her personal experiences with the R&B singer and convicted felon R. Kelly. This past September Kelly was convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking.
These serious charges came after years of multiple women trying to come forward with their claims of assault, and among the many women is Williams, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum.
Porsha Williams reveals shocking moment with R. Kelly
Porsha Williams is revealing for the first time a shocking instance with the convicted sex criminal but also goes on to share why she's revealing this post-conviction. The reality TV personality shared her experiences in a tell-all interview with People while promoting her new book.
In 2007, Williams says she wanted to explore her talents as a potential R&B singer and knew a friend of R. Kelly. After being invited to work on some material, Williams said the address they gave her was at Kelly's house - not a studio.
Williams was then led to a bedroom, where she was left alone for hours. Finally, when Kelly arrived, he forcefully suggested she take off her clothes.
"This is what you're supposed to do. You have to. There is no turning back," she writes in her memoir, The Pursuit of Porsha.
Along with this traumatic event, Williams reveals she was also invited back two more times, in which Williams says she saw plenty of more women staying in his home.
She kept it a secret for years, and memories of hearing another woman in the next room being beaten have haunted her. She decided to never return following that moment and kept it a secret from even her mother, who had her own domestic traumas in life.
"I think for any woman or man who's been in an abusive situation, you don't want to tell your parents because you don't want them to think that they had let you down in any way," she said.
She continued that she did eventually tell her mother, who told her it's okay to reveal these moments.
"She was glad that I told her and we talked about it. She told me some of her experiences," she said. "And we just talked about how this should be told so other women don't have to go through it."
