Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault, Gave Woman Herpes, Allegedly

R. Kelly accuser takes her chilling claims public

Faith Rodgers filed a lawsuit in New York City claiming that R. Kelly sexually assaulted her and gave her herpes. R. Kelly is one of pop music's bestselling artists, with hits including "Ignition", "I Believe I Can Fly", and "Bump N' Grind". The woman, Faith Rogers, said that she had been abused by the singer since she was a teenager, and she filed a lawsuit in Texas on Monday seeking unspecified damages, according to CBS News.

R. Kelly's management had no comment on the allegations when reached out to by EW.

The suit comes after separate allegations Kelly has exerted psychological and sexual control over a host of young women, effectively keeping them within a cult-like environment.

A Chicago concert was pulled this month following protests, and Spotify removed his songs from their playlists as part of a new policy against "hateful conduct".

That case was settled out of court - as was a suit brought in 2001 by former Epic Records intern Tracy Sampson, who claimed she began a sexual relationship with the singer when she was 17.


Noting the various other similar accusations that have been made against the musician, the lawsuit says: "Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique". Rodgers said he even introduced her to one of five women Kelly allegedly said he was "raising".

American singer-songwriter R Kelly has been sued for alleged sexual assault, false imprisonment, and failure to disclose an STD. A female assistant would stand guard outside of cars, studios, and rooms that Kelly would lock her in for punishment if she did not meet his sexual expectations. But he has this type of, like, intimidation right off the bat. "I kinda just froze up", she said. I kinda just froze up. The singer filed suit against bosses at Comcast Spectacor previous year (17), accusing them of breach of contract over a show at the Macon Coliseum in February, 2017.

In 2002, Kelly was charged with 21 counts of child pornography related to his allegedly videotaping himself having sex with an unidentified underage girl.

Rodgers claimed that after they had sex he asked her how old she was and told her, "You know if you're really 16, you can tell Daddy, right?" He did not tell Ms Rodgers, now 20, that he was infected with herpes - a criminal act - and she contracted the disease.
