  • R. Kelly accuser takes her chilling claims public

According to the suit obtained by CNN, Faith Rodgers says she was 19 when she first met the singer past year after Kelly performed in San Antonio, Texas.

Rodgers filed an anonymous police report against Kelly in Dallas last month, but her identity wasn't revealed until she filed the lawsuit on Monday.

Representatives for Kelly did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.

R Kelly is constantly denying the allegation and also the subsequent backlash from the Time's Up movement, "a greedy, conscious and malicious conspiracy to demean him, his family and the women with whom he spends his time".

The chain revealed on Tuesday that it was putting thousands of jobs at risk through plans to extend its programme of store closures to 100 sites by 2022.

After the show, she says Kelly "bombarded" her hotel room and initiated "unwanted sexual contact" ... including oral and vaginal intercourse. She also said that that was not the first nor last time that she found herself coerced by the singer-songwriter into having sex.

"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", said Rodgers' lawsuit. The two exchanged contact information and R. Kelly allegedly flew her to a show in NY.

Faith Evans, 20, is claiming that the 51-year-old held her against her will and that he psychologically, verbally and sexually abused her. Kelly has long denied these allegations. "He was demanding that I do stuff on camera that I wasn't comfortable doing whatsoever".

'He has this type of intimidation right off the bat, so I was just waiting for it to be over, ' she added during her interview. It is here she says she unknowingly contracted herpes from him.

The outcomes suggest that the rate of suicidal attempts increased in the fall and spring, and lowest in the summer. The researchers called for more studies of possible gender differences in youth mental health.

During that time, Kelly allegedly recorded Rodgers during sex without her consent and locked her in secluded areas in an attempt to control her. Some of them had been with him for 15 years.

Rodgers claimed that after they had sex he asked her how old she was and told her, "You know if you're really 16, you can tell Daddy, right?" They believe she and several other girls were being controlled by Kelly and forced to perform sex acts as part of a cult. He was acquitted of all charges in 2008 and continued to rack up hits and sell out stadiums around the country.

An appearance at a concert in his native Chicago scheduled earlier this month was canceled after protests. As for Rodgers, she hopes by coming forward she can help put an end to Kelly's long history of alleged abuse.
