A woman who said she meet R&B singer R. Kelly at a party in 2017 has filed a lawsuit against him, accusing him of sexual battery, false imprisonment and transmitting a sexual disease, the latest in a string of accusations against the Grammy-award-winning pop star.
Faith said she had a almost one-year relationship with the 51-year-old singer, whom she met in San Antonio after a party.
Rodgers says a few months after meeting Kelly, he flew her out to NY, where he "initiated unwanted sexual contact" in her hotel room, according to the filing.
She also told the news organization that she believes Kelly was priming her to join a group of women she says he lives with and travels with.
Rodgers' lawsuit against the singer alleges that Kelly "routinely engaged in intimidation, mental, verbal and sexual abuse, during and after sexual contact", The New York Times reports.
To make matters worse, she claims a female assistant stood guard to make sure she didn't escape! "I don't never talk to nobody about nothing on the phone. I don't care what the situation is".
"The first time... I was left in the auto for a total of eight hours that night..."
Kelly is no stranger to allegations of this nature.
She also alluded to the singer's infamous "sex cult".
According to TMZ, Kelly has been hit with a lawsuit by a woman who claims the singer gave her herpes. I was embarrassed; it's not something that's going to go away. Rodgers said she is not looking for a settlement and her lawyers say they will be seeking a jury trial.
"He described these women as his family", Faith told the host. He has crafted pop anthems and love songs but he is defined by sexually explicit songs such as "Feelin' on Yo Booty", "Your Body's Calling Me", "Sex Me" and even more explicit fare. In 2008, he was acquitted on child pornography charges. This is a similar story to what other people have alleged he said in order to woo young women into his bed.
Faith claims she discovered that she had contracted herpes.
"After initiating non-permissive, painful and abusive sex with plaintiff, defendant, R. Kelly, immediately insulted and criticized" Rodgers "concerning her "lack of participation" and physical inadequacies", the suit says.
