Kelly sues him for sexual assault and herpes infection

Kelly sues him for sexual assault and herpes infection

Rodgers also claims that she was contacted by a relative of a different woman who had relations with R. Kelly, and told her that she should get tested for herpes. Officials advised her to record a phone call with Kelly on it-in efforts to see if he would admit to giving her the STD.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they decide to make their names public, which Rodgers has done. Afterward, Rodgers claims Kelly "bombarded" her hotel room and initiated "unwanted sexual contact" including oral and vaginal intercourse.

Rodgers also told the BBC that during their relationship, Kelly requested that she sign a contract to offer him "protection".

"Where's the cops?" Wendy Williams, 53, asked during her show on May 22 after R. Kelly, 51, was accused of alleged sexual, mental and physical abuse by another young woman.

This was "behaviour created to humiliate, embarrass, intimate and shame her", according to the lawsuit.

"CBS This Morning" reached out to R. Kelly's representatives and they said they have no comment on Rodgers' allegations or the new lawsuit.

R Kelly is constantly denying the allegation and also the subsequent backlash from the Time's Up movement, "a greedy, conscious and malicious conspiracy to demean him, his family and the women with whom he spends his time".

The campaign has gained traction. Spotify recently removed his music from their streaming service and several shows have been canceled.

"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.

The marriage was annulled after Aaliyah's family became aware of it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The same lawsuit details that Rodgers went on to date Kelly for one year, and during that time, she alleges he locked her in rooms and cars as punishment for "failing to fulfil his sexual desires", while using a female assistant stand guard to keep Rodgers from escaping, according to TMZ. Kelly and the girl whose parents came forward denied the allegations against him. "These offences occurred while our client was being groomed to join Kelly's sex cult". She does not wish for a settlement and wants the case to go before a jury.

Police said the incident wouldn't be investigated as sexual assault because both parties consented.
