R. Kelly is reportedly being sued for sexual battery.
In April Miss Rodgers filed a criminal complaint with the Dallas Police Department and says under their advisement she recorded a phone call with Kelly, hoping he would admit to knowingly gave her an STD.
Two years later, Tiffany Hawkins filed suit against him, as well as his record, publishing and management companies, claiming personal injuries and emotional damage arising from what she alleged was a sexual relationship she had with Kelly, which she said began when she was 15 and ended when she was 18.
She says she told Kelly that she was not comfortable and did not want to engage in sex, but Kelly ignored her.
"Unfortunately, the facts and background of this case are not unique", said Rodgers' lawsuit. "I kinda just froze up", she said.
A representative for R. Kelly claims that all accusations are false and it is another attempt to smear his name: "R. Kelly never has been accused of hate, and the lyrics he writes express love and desire".
