R. Kelly Faces Lawsuit Alleging He Gave A Woman Herpes

R. Kelly is being sued for sexual assault by a woman who claims he held her against her will and abused her... TMZ has learned

R Kelly has been hit with yet another sexual assault lawsuit as a woman has come forward to sue the singer for sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose an STD.

In the suit, according to TMZ, Faith Rodgers not only claims she and R. Kelly met in San Antonio but that, months later, the musician reportedly flew Rodgers to New York City to see one of R. Kelly's concerts. They began to message each other frequently until R. Kelly flew her to one of his shows in NY. Rodgers describes a year-long relationship with R. Kelly that started in 2017 when she was 19-years-old.

Representatives for Kelly declined comment on this story.

R Kelly has repeatedly denied the many sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Earlier this month the streaming service Spotify removed Kelly's music from all its playlists and algorithmic recommendations as part of its policy on hate content and hateful conduct.

She said the singer told her that he wanted "to develop a long-term romantic relationship".

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

R. Kelly is being sued by a woman who claims he knowingly infected her with an STD. Kelly is accused of engaging in the longterm sexual and emotional abuse of a female fan that regularly included the woman being punished for not sexually satisfying the singer.

"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".

'He has this type of intimidation right off the bat, so I was just waiting for it to be over, ' she added during her interview. She claims R. Kelly would lock her in rooms and cars for hours if she did not please him sexually. "Some of them had been with him for 15 years", she said.

A woman told Rolling Stone previous year that she was in a long-term relationship with the singer that was sexually and physically abusive.

"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.

Amid the controversy to #muterkelly, in late April promoters cancelled a concert in Chicago, his hometown.

Rodgers believes that Kelly was planning on bringing her into a group of women who travel with him...a group of women he "raises".
