A woman is suing R&B singer-songwriter R. Kelly for knowingly infecting her with a sexually transmitted disease after a consensual sexual encounter.
R. Kelly often kept her locked in secluded areas to punish and control her, said Ms Faith Rodgers, who filed a lawsuit in a NY court against the singer on Monday.
Rodgers claims that she continued her relationship with Keller for roughly 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". Moreover, Rodgers says that R. Kelly would lock her in rooms as "punishment for failing to please him sexually". Following months of texting, he flew her out to NY for a concert, after which she claims he came to her hotel room, turned out the lights and "demanded ... with authority in his voice" that she take off her clothes.
A representative for Kelly declined to comment when reached by ABC News.
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.
Spotify announced it had removed Kelly's music from its playlists, citing a new policy on hate content and hateful conduct; Kelly has been accused recently of unseemly behavior, from having sex slaves to dating underage girls.
TMZreported that Rodgers claimed in her legal documents that she met the R&B legend in March of a year ago in NYC.
In an emotional interview with the BBC, Faith described R Kelly's alleged sexual misconduct.
Faith Rodgers also claims to have epilepsy and is accusing R. Kelly of plying her with alcohol, knowing that it aggravated her "epileptic condition". "Sex isn't something, you know, I'm ready for", she said. Mr. Kelly for 30 years has sung songs about his love and passion for women. "And the child lock was on the auto", she recalled. I was embarrassed; it's not something that's going to go away. "I kinda just froze up", she said. Kelly has long denied these allegations.
During that time, he 'willfully, deliberately and maliciously infected her with herpes'.
