Another Day, Another Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against R. Kelly – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire R. Kelly is back in the news, with another sex scandal. At some point the 52-yr old star has to make better choices, or get locked up. A person doesn't continue to have sexual misconduct, and assault charges, or investigations year after year, unless they truly have a problem. Yet another lawsuit has been filed against the R&B star, with accusations of abuse and assault. HipHollywood reports 20-yr old, Faith Rodgers, is accusing the star of locking her in a room because she refused to pleasure him. She also claims Kells gave her and STD.
Rodgers alleges she met the Pied Piper in San Antonio, after a concert a year ago, and they allegedly have been together ever since. Crazy thing is, she's trying to say he raped her the first time they had sex, alleging the encounter was "non-permissive." Page Six reports the woman claims she told the star she was “not ready to have sex,” but he ignored her protest. If that's the case why would she stay with him for a year after that?
Faith Rogers is suing R. Kelly for an unspecified amount. So far the singer nor his camp have responded to the latest accusations. Rogers is suing on grounds of sexual battery, fraud and false imprisonment. Court docs outlining the lawsuit state, the “Defendant, R. Kelly, locked Plaintiff in secluded areas including rooms, studios and motor vehicles, for extended periods of time in order to punish Plaintiff for failing to please Defendant sexually and/or for perceived offenses and violations of his prescribed code of conduct.”
What a mess. As always, we will keep you posted on any new developments. Catch the latest celeb news with Tha Wire every weekday on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
