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

The woman, who is named Faith Rodgers, claims she met Kelly in March 2017 after one of his performances in San Antonio and, at the time of meeting him, she was just 19-years-old.

That being said, she is accusing R. Kelly of locking her up for hours back in March of a year ago and more!

Weeks later, Kelly arranged for Rodgers to travel to NY for one of his concerts and put her up in a hotel, she says.

Kelly' lawyers have not yet responded to several media outlets' requests for comment.

R Kelly has repeatedly denied the many sexual misconduct allegations against him.

On May 10, streaming service Spotify said it had removed the singer's music from its editorial playlists.

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.

Rodgers' interview with CBS This Morning comes weeks after the Women Of Colour coalition of the Time's Up organization announced support for the Mute R. Kelly movement, which urges his record label and corporate sponsors to cut ties with the R&B singer over the accusations of sexual misconduct against him.

Belgium and Ireland summoned their Israeli ambassadors, while Turkey temporarily expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara. Her mother and father cradled her body, wrapped in a white funeral shroud, as they walked to the graveyard to bury her.

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

Kelly has denied any wrong doing and has not been charged with any crimes connected with women's the allegations.

"I was just waiting for it to be over".

Last month, at the advisement of law enforcement, she recorded a phone conversation with him. But he has this type of, like, intimidation right off the bat.

Rodgers' complaint outlines other disturbing behaviour, claiming that Kelly would lock her in rooms, studios and vehicles as punishment for "failing to please defendant sexually".

The accuser told him that she was not ready to have sex, but Kelly disregarded her words. She recalls a time when he said, "You can tell Daddy if you're 16, you know". In 2008, he was acquitted on child pornography charges.

An appearance at a concert in his native Chicago scheduled earlier this month was canceled after protests.

Rodgers continued and detailed an encounter with the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer where he visited her hotel room and initiated intercourse.
