At press time, Kelly was being sued for sexual assault by Faith Rodgers, who claimed they met in March of past year when she was 19 and a couple months later Kelly flew her to NYC for a concert, according to TMZ.

Faith Rodgers says she first met R. Kelly in 2017 after one of his concerts in San Antonio, TX.

"During the course of their, approximately one-year relationship, Defendant R. Kelly, routinely engaged in intimidation, mental, verbal and sexual abuse, during and after sexual contact", the suit states.

A Dallas attorney filed a lawsuit Monday claiming Grammy Award-winning artist R. Kelly knowingly gave his client a sexually transmitted disease.

Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday. He has always been the target of sexual misconduct allegations, which he has denied.

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". On May 21, Faith Rodgers, 20, filed a lawsuit against the R&B singer at the Supreme Court in NY.

TMZ reported that Rodgers claimed in her legal documents that she met the R&B legend in March of a year ago in NYC. "Not just, you know, he's demanding me to do this". The article alleged that Kelly targets young women and lures them into his circle, keeps them inside his home, controls their lives, and forbids them from making contact with the outside world.

Kelly has denied any wrong doing and has not been charged with any crimes connected with women's the allegations. R. Kelly insisted he calls her "Daddy", and called her his "little doll".

After two months of phone calls, texting, and FaceTiming, she alleges he flew her to NY to attend one of his shows, even paying for her hotel. "And he's like, 'Take off your clothes.' And he says it, you know, with authority in his voice", Rodgers, who was 19 at the time, explains. I was embarrassed; it's not something that's going to go away. "Some of them had been with him for 15 years", she said.

Popular American singer-songwriter R Kelly has been accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman.

Faith claims she discovered that she had contracted herpes.
