R Kelly is going through a fresh allegation of sexual misconduct, from a former spouse who claims he “intentionally” inflamed her with an STD in Dallas.
According to her legal professional, the unnamed lady used to be the sufferer of “unlawful restraint” throughout her 11-month courting with the R&B singer.
It is said that Kelly, 51, tried to make the girl a member of the “sex cult” he is alleged to have run.
The Dallas Police Department has stated it’s having a look into the allegation.
In a observation issued prematurely of a press convention scheduled for Wednesday, legal professional Lee Merritt claims his client used to be 19 when she and Kelly started a sexual courting.
Mr Merritt is going directly to accuse the singer of “predatory, controlling and abusive behaviour” and “furnishing alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor”.
Kelly, very best recognized in the United Kingdom for hits together with I Believe I Can Fly, has confronted numerous accusations of sexual misconduct, making indecent photographs of kids and different offences.
Last 12 months the singer – whose complete title is Robert Kelly – denied allegations he used to be protecting various younger girls in a so-called cult.
The Washington Post has quoted a consultant for the singer as pronouncing that he “categorically denies all claims and allegations”.
