A woman who said she interned at Epic Records when she was a teen alleges that R.Kelly sexually abused her beginning when she was 16 years old.
Tracy Sampson said she met Kelly in the summer of 1999 when she was a 16-year-old intern at the famous label.
Sampson, speaking to NBC's Dateline in her first on-camera interview, claimed Kelly allegedly tried to kiss her when she was underage and began a sexual relationship with her.

She said the musician asked her, "'Can I kiss you?' and I was like, 'No,'" to which he responded, "'Well, give me a hug.' And then, like, when I gave him a hug he just started kissing me."
"I was in love with him," she said. "I just didn't know what to do. Like, I didn't know if this was normal. I didn't know if this is how adults acted."
