In the civil lawsuit filed in NY state court on Monday, the woman, Faith Rodgers, said she first met Kelly at a party following his performance in San Antonio, Texas, in March 2017, when she was 19.
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".
A Texas woman named Faith A. Rodgers filed a lawsuit against R. Kelly in a Manhattan court on Monday.
Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.
Singer R. Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault, False Imprisonment
Spotify recently removed the R&B singer's music from its playlists, citing its new policy on hate content and hateful conduct. On May 21, Faith Rodgers, 20, filed a lawsuit against the R&B singer at the Supreme Court in NY. She said that the singer gave her herpes without telling her he had the disease, and he used the infection as a means to control her. "Not just, you know, he's demanding me to do this".
Another woman has come forward with allegations against R&B superstar R. Kelly (née Robert Kelly). She also added that Kelly used to record her against her will.
Kelly has denied any wrong doing and has not been charged with any crimes connected with women's the allegations.
Faith also claimed that she experienced multiple episodes of forced sex, including one early in their relationship when he demanded that she take off her clothes in a hotel room. I was embarrassed; it's not something that's going to go away. He pulled my trousers down, bent me in front of a mirror, he had me by my neck and he just penetrated me and started having sex with me. Rodgers said he even introduced her to one of five women Kelly allegedly said he was "raising". "Sex isn't something, you know, I'm ready for", she said. "For over 20 years, women across America have been victimized by defendant, R. Kelly, and have filed eerily similar claims".
"It's not like all the time he was just, you know, this devious person", she said. "I love you because you remind me of them'".
