A woman told Dallas police R&B singer R. Kelly “knowingly and intentionally” infected her with a sexually transmitted disease during an eight-month relationship that began when she was 19.
The 51-year-old singer’s latest accuser claims he not only held her against her will, but he also plied her with drugs and alcohol and left her with an STD.
The woman claims she was 19 when she met Kelly in Dallas last June. According to her attorney, she was unlawfully restrained, and Kelly gave her alcohol and “illegal drugs.”
She’s claiming aggravated assault based on the singer allegedly giving her an unspecified STD.
The accuser’s attorney, Lee Merritt, told the Washington Post she recently went to Dallas Police Department to file a report against Kelly.
The accuser is getting ready to file a lawsuit. Kelly’s representatives have denied the allegations.
The woman says she has reached out to Joycelyn Savage’s family, too.
As reported by celebrity outlet TMZ, Joycelyn’s parents believe Kelly turned her, and several other women, into his sex slaves.
Although, Joycelyn told TMZ she is not being held against her will.
Kelly’s stardom has been marked by dozens of sexual misconduct allegations dating back to 1994, when he allegedly married R&B singer Aaliyah when she was 15 and he was 27.
In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges after a video showed him allegedly having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.
He has agreed to multiple out-of-court settlements with women who accused him of sexual assault, including one who said Kelly had sex with her when she was 15.
In 2017, a BuzzFeed report alleged the singer holds multiple young women against their will in an abusive sex cult.
Rolling Stone also reported that Kelly’s ex-girlfriend, radio DJ Kitti Jones, said he abused, sexually assaulted and starved her throughout their two-year relationship.
