R. Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault: 'Painful and Abusive Sex'

R. Kelly accuser takes her chilling claims public

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.

Faith Rodgers, from Texas, filed her claim against the R&B singer in the New York Supreme Court on Monday, which sets out a series of allegations against "Robert Sylvester Kelly a.k.a. R. Kelly".

A day after filing a lawsuit alleging that R. Kelly knowingly gave her herpes, 20-year-old Faith Rodgers sat down for her first interview to lay out damning accusations against the R&B singer. R. Kelly is one of pop music's bestselling artists, with hits including "Ignition", "I Believe I Can Fly", and "Bump N' Grind".

Rodgers first filed a criminal complaint with the Dallas police in April and has since filed a lawsuit in NY accusing Kelly of sexual battery, fraud and false imprisonment.

Rodgers reportedly met Kelly a year ago, at a concert in San Antonio.

Kelly's management team declined to comment Tuesday. Music streaming services, including Spotify and Apple have removed R Kelly's songs from some of their playlists and a petition calling for a "worldwide mute" on the singer has attracted more than 70,000 signatures. After Kelly's show, Rodgers claims the singer came to her room, disregarded her statements that she was "not ready to have sex", and "initiated non-consensual oral and vaginal intercourse". She also alleges that he video-recorded her "submitting to deviant and compromising sexual contact" without her consent.

"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", said Rodgers' lawsuit. Rodgers said he even introduced her to one of five women Kelly allegedly said he was "raising". In April, another lawyer, a publicist and an assistant all cut their ties with Kelly as well.

For nearly twenty years, rumors of Kelly's proclivity for young women have haunted him, and he was even married to singer Aaliyah when she was 15 years old. "I kinda just froze up", she said.

"He has this type of, like, intimidation right off the bat".
