Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault, Gave Woman Herpes, Allegedly

She claims the pair then entered a relationship for a year, in which Kelly allegedly locked her in rooms for "failing to fulfil his sexual desires", and that Kelly enlisted a female confidante to ensure Rodgers was unable to leave.

She went to say that Kelly, after the show, "bombarded" her hotel room and initiated "unwanted sexual contact". including oral and vaginal intercourse.

R. Kelly often kept her locked in secluded areas to punish and control her, said Ms Faith Rodgers, who filed a lawsuit in a NY court against the singer on Monday.

Rodgers also alleges in the suit that Kelly did not tell Rodgers, now 20, that he was infected with herpes, which she contracted.

The lawsuit, filed in the New York Supreme Court, accuses the "Ignition" singer of sexual battery, fraud and false imprisonment.

Several other women spoke out against similar alleged sexual abuse by R. Kelly earlier this year.

He has always been the target of sexual misconduct allegations, which he has denied.

"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", said Rodgers' lawsuit.

The mounting claims against him have gained traction recently, even though claims that were lodged against Kelly years ago didn't stick (he was acquitted in a 2008 child pornography case).

She recorded a phone call with the singer, allegedly at the behest of the police, in hopes he'd admit to giving her an STD, but he refused to address it, telling her, "I don't know about no situation". His multiple chart-topping hits include "Bump N' Grind" and "I Believe I Can Fly". This month, a Chicago concert was cancelled after protests.

Now, Rodgers is suing Kelly for "willfully, deliberately and maliciously" infecting her with herpes, and mentally and sexually abusing her.

"I didn't really say anything. I kinda just froze up", she said. "He was demanding that I do stuff on camera that I wasn't comfortable doing whatsoever". But he has this type of, like, intimidation right off the bat. I want to propose a toast to all the strong mother*ckers in here right now.It's mother*ckers like you is why I continue to do what I do because I have a basketball mentality. She also alleges that he video-recorded her "submitting to deviant and compromising sexual contact" without her consent.

Kelly's representatives declined NPR's request for comment on this suit.
