Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault, Gave Woman Herpes, Allegedly

R. Kelly accuser takes her chilling claims public

Faith Rodgers says she first met R. Kelly in 2017 after one of his concerts in San Antonio, TX.

She remained in a relationship with Kelly for about a year, during which he "routinely engaged in intimidation, mental, verbal and sexual abuse, during and after sexual contact". R. Kelly is one of pop music's bestselling artists, with hits including "Ignition", "I Believe I Can Fly", and "Bump N' Grind".

R. Kelly has been sued for sexual battery, false imprisonment, and for not informing a sexual partner of an STD, TMZ reports.

After two months of phone calls, texting, and FaceTiming, she alleges he flew her to NY to attend one of his shows, even paying for her hotel.

Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday. Kelly has denied accusations of sexual impropriety or violence against women.

On May 10, streaming service Spotify said it had removed the singer's music from its editorial playlists. Kelly also said that he would "help her work on it" and that he wanted to "teach [Rodgers] and show [her] how to be a woman".

"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", the lawsuit says.

R. Kelly is facing a new lawsuit for an alleged sexual assault and failure to disclosed STD.

I won't hinder Rooney if he wants to leave Everton, insists Allardyce
Everton manager Sam Allardyce has prioritised the signing of a top goalscorer as he aims to take the club into the top six. Everton have invited Wayne Rooney's representatives for disaster talks over the previous England captain's future.

"For over 20 years, women across America have been victimized by R. Kelly, and have filed eerily similar claims", Rodgers' attorney, Faith C. Hills, told NPR.

She also thinks the 51-year-old "pursues teenage/underage" girls and "lures" them into engaging in sexual acts.

"He comes over and he starts, like, rubbing the side of my face", she said of what happened after they slept together.

Details included that Kelly had her call him "Daddy", would lock her up in a van for hours at a time, set a goal of teaching her how to have sex like a "mature woman", and introduced her to other women he allegedly said he was "raising".

"It's not like all the time he was just, you know, this devious person. Sex isn't something, you know, I'm ready for", she said. In 2008, he was acquitted on child pornography charges. The next morning after she arrived, Rodgers claims Kelly showed up to her hotel room.

"I think our culture is slowly, not suddenly, slowly transitioning to taking women's allegations against men of power seriously", said Faith's lawyer, Lee Merritt.

An appearance at a concert in his native Chicago scheduled earlier this month was canceled after protests.
