Woman To Police, 'R Kelly Gave Me An STD'

The woman claims she was a member of Kelly's exclusive "sex cult", where he lured young girls in with promises of fame and fortune. The woman claims she met the singer last June in Dallas when she was 19, and that he restrained her and drugged her against her will.

TMZ reports that a woman has come forward accusing R. Kelly of keeping her against her will and giving her an STD.

Singer R. Kelly sings the National anthem before the Brooklyn Nets vs the Atlanta Hawks at The Barclays Center on November 17, 2015, in New York City.

A Kelly representative said the singer "categorically denies all claims and allegations" related to this new complaint. Kelly did not comment to BuzzFeed but his attorney denied the charges in the article. He was involved in a child pornography trial for which he was acquitted in 2008, and has settled numerous other lawsuits in which women accused him of sexual misconduct.

"These offenses occurred while our client was being groomed to join Kelly's sex cult", Merritt said.

Various accusers have emerged since the exposé was published, with all telling tales of a manipulative singer who used his fame to lure them into a controlling "sex pad", where he controlled everything from how they dressed to who they spoke to.

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". "But in Texas, someone who transmits a sexually transmitted disease to someone else without disclosing it first can be charged with assault", according to the Dallas Morning News report.

She claimed Kelly groomed her and took her to his "sex dungeon" where he forced himself on her. I hope this opens up some answers. After the relationship with Kelly ended, the latest accuser reached out to the parents of a woman named in last year's Buzzfeed report, who apparently advised her to get tested for STDs.

Merritt has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday.
