Kelly for False Imprisonment & 'Painful and Abusive Sex'

According to the legal docs filed in NYC, Faith Rodgers says she met the singer in March 2017 after his show in San Antonio.

Rodgers also claimed that R. Kelly subjected her to abuse, locked her in secluded rooms as punishment for not pleasing him sexually.

In an interview set for today (05-22-18) only on "CBS This Morning", Faith Rodgers told CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan that she was in a relationship with Kelly for almost a year before leaving.

Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday. Kelly has faced repeated allegations of sexual misconduct and has recently been targeted by the Time's Up movement. 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.

A woman has filed a lawsuit in NY against R. Kelly, claiming the singer sexually assaulted her, locked her in rooms for punishment and infected her with herpes. She claimed she began having sex with Kelly when she was just 15.

Noting the various other similar accusations that have been made against the musician, the lawsuit says: "Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique". A woman is suing the Pied Piper of Pee Pee for sexual assault and allegedly giving her an STD-herpes.

American singer-songwriter R Kelly has been sued for alleged sexual assault, false imprisonment, and failure to disclose an STD. I kinda just froze up. She believes the now 51-year-old "pursues teenage/underage" girls and "lures" them into engaging in sex acts. She recalls a time when he said, "You can tell Daddy if you're 16, you know". But he has this type of, like, intimidation right off the bat. She says they followed a series of rules set by the singer like standing up, walking to him and kissing him on the mouth whenever he entered the room.

An appearance at a concert in his native Chicago scheduled earlier this month was canceled after protests. He was acquitted of all charges in 2008 and continued to rack up hits and sell out stadiums around the country.
