Woman Sues R. Kelly for Giving Her an STD at 19

A Texas woman recently accused the R&B singer of giving her an "incurable" sexually transmitted disease during the course of their eight month relationship.

According to reports, the woman in question filed a complaint against the Ignition singer with Dallas Police, and is preparing a civil complaint.

A new claim accuses the singer of infecting an unidentified woman with an STD and says the victim ended their relationship in February. Kelly allegedly "furnished alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor" and is accused of "unlawful restraint and aggravated assault".

Last year, R. Kelly was alleged to have been holding women captive in an abusive "cult," detailed in an explosive Buzzfeed exposé from Jim DeRogatis.

A representative for Kelly did not immediately responde to a Daily News request for comment.

A spokesperson told The Washington Post, which first reported the woman's complaint, that the singer "categorically denies all claims and allegations".

The complaint also states that if the woman had joined Kelly's alleged group, she would have to sign a contract and provide sensitive personal information about her family to serve as "collateral".

"Other girls have said it to [my wife and me] but they weren't willing to speak up", Savage said. Another woman has said Kelly had sex with her while she was underage, then attempted to hide the relationship by asking her to sign a false incriminating statement and a non-disclosure agreement.

His latest accuser reached out to the parents of Jocelyn Savage, a 22-year-old who they said dropped out of college to move in with Kelly in 2016. She believes that he infected her in December when he was in town for a concert at the Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas.

R Kelly's extensive history of sexual misconduct is a matter of intense public scrutiny and conversation and continues to be almost ten years after he was acquitted during a trial over child pornography. They said their daughter was forced to say she was happy and did not want to leave Kelly.

Kelly faced allegations of abuse, "brainwashing", and controlling behavior by several former members of his entourage in a Buzzfeed report.

Merritt is expected to hold a news conference Wednesday at Dallas Police headquarters.
