Faith Rodgers filed a lawsuit in New York City claiming that R. Kelly sexually assaulted her and gave her herpes. She says she obtained herpes from Kelly and that they dated for a year where he mentally, verbally and sexually abused her, locking her in rooms, studios and cars, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. His multiple chart-topping hits include "Bump N' Grind" and "I Believe I Can Fly".
During an interview for CBS This Morning, Faith claimed that after a couple of months of texts, phone conversations, and FaceTiming, Kelly flew her to NYC for a concert.
Kelly' lawyers have not yet responded to several media outlets' requests for comment.
In recent months, R Kelly has faced numerous sexual misconduct allegations by former girlfriends. Spotify also booted Kelly's music from its playlists as part of its new "Hate Content & Hateful Conduct Policy". After Kelly's show, Rodgers claims the singer came to her room, disregarded her statements that she was "not ready to have sex", and "initiated non-consensual oral and vaginal intercourse". Rodgers contends that it was "behavior created to humiliate, embarrass, intimate and shame her", and that Kelly regularly recorded her without her consent during sex.
"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", the lawsuit says.

During that time she says Kelly instructed her to call him "daddy" and would lock her up for hours at a time. "Some of them had been with him for 15 years", she said.
