He "routinely recorded (Rodgers) without her consent", abused and berated her, and "locked (her) in secluded areas including rooms, studios and motor vehicles, for extended periods of time in order to punish (her) for failing to please (him) sexually", the lawsuit alleges. "Although a representative for the singer said in April that he 'categorically denies all claims and allegations" in the lawsuit.
That being said, she is accusing R. Kelly of locking her up for hours back in March of past year and more! The plaintiff also claims that the 51-year-old "mentally, physically, and verbally" abused her. She said that she met Kelly in 2017 when she was 19 years old, and they were in a relationship for about one year. They exchanged phone numbers, and Kelly later had her flown out to NY.
Rodgers said in an interview that she was in a relationship with Kelly for almost a year before leaving. "I don't care what the situation is", he reportedly replied.
A woman told Rolling Stone previous year that she was in a long-term relationship with the singer that was sexually and physically abusive.
"He doesn't act his age", she added. As for Rodgers, she hopes by coming forward she can help put an end to Kelly's long history of alleged abuse. "And he's like, 'You know, if you're really, you know, 16, that you can tell Daddy, right?'". TMZ reports that families of the women involved with the disgraced singer-songwriter have reached out to the network to tell their stories.
In February this year R Kelly was served with an eviction notice on one of his Georgia homes, which was believed to be used as the hub of the R&B singer's alleged "sex cult" before being burgled last year. Kelly has long denied these allegations.
A Facebook video surfaced of Kelly flanked by a group of people, partying it up and affirming in an expletive-laden tirade that he will continue to make music in the midst of lawsuits and recent claims that he violated young girls and lured them into a sex cult inner circle. "What about the ones who don't walk away?" she said.
"After initiating non-permissive, painful and abusive sex with plaintiff, defendant, R. Kelly, immediately insulted and criticized" Rodgers "concerning her "lack of participation" and physical inadequacies", the suit says. She does not wish for a settlement and wants the case to go before a jury.
