Kellee's real name was Pat Patterson. Rick James tells this story in his auto bio: "One day I went to visit my girl Pat, she was a lovely Black woman. One day I was hanging out at her house waiting for her to return when the phone rang. When I answered, a voice said, "Is Pat home? The voice seemed familiar. He then asked me, "Who is this?" I replied, "Her brother." Then he said, "Tell her Johnny called." I thought nothing of it."
When Pat returned, she told me she wasn't hustling anymore. She said now she had sugar daddies. We snorted coke and reminisced. She asked me if she received any calls when she was out. I told her Johhny had been calling all day. She suddenly jumped up and said, "Oh no, I forgot."
She got on the phone and starts talking, laughing with her hand over the phone. "Yes baby," she'd say. "Why sure, baby, Ok, I'll be right here waiting." She then hung up laughing.
I said, "Who was that?" She said, "Johnny Carson."
