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.
At press time, Kelly was being sued for sexual assault by Faith Rodgers, who claimed they met in March of a year ago when she was 19 and a couple months later Kelly flew her to NYC for a concert, according to TMZ.
Rodgers filed suit with the Dallas Police Department claiming Kelly "mentally, sexually and verbally" abused her over the course of their year-long relationship when she was 19.
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.
In May 2017, Faith says R Kelly flew her to NY to attend one of his concerts.
Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday. Multiple women have claimed to have been abused by Kelly as a part of a sex cult, an allegation that he has always denied.
"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", said Rodgers' lawsuit. A woman is suing the Pied Piper of Pee Pee for sexual assault and allegedly giving her an STD-herpes. "For over 20 years, women across America have been victimized by defendant, R. Kelly, and have filed eerily similar claims". After the "abusive sex", the 51-year-old reportedly told her she was boring in bed.
Due to the other allegations surfacing about R. Kelly, some companies have taken direct action. I kinda just froze up.
"He comes over and he starts, like, rubbing the side of my face", she said of what happened after they slept together. She describes situations where he locked up inside cars, rooms, and even studios as a means to punish her for not fulfilling his sexual needs.
'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.
"I was devastated", she said.
In 2002, Kelly was charged with 21 counts of child pornography related to his allegedly videotaping himself having sex with an unidentified underage girl.
The lawsuit claims Evans was clean before sleeping with R Kelly and that she only learned he was infected when allegations became public earlier this year.
