R. Kelly has been accused of giving a woman herpes while they were romantically involved with each other, and now she’s put in a request for the disgraced singer’s medical records.
According to Radar Online, Faith Rodgers wants the incarcerated crooner to answers questions while under oath about the dates they met up and the times they were intimate with each other. Rodgers also wants access to all of his financial information and which banking institutions he currently has accounts at.
In addition, Rodgers wants R. Kelly to give her all the credit cards he used from 2017 to 2019 and any medical professionals and hospital facilities he visited during this same time frame. She also wants Kelly to admit that he gave her an STD prior to having sex and that he forced her to perform sexual acts without her approval.
A judge has not made a ruling over Rodgers’ multiple requests as of yet.
Back in 2018, Rodgers sued R. Kelly for sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose an STD. She dated Kelly for about one year after meeting him when she was 19 at a San Antonio concert. Following their initial meeting, Rodgers claimed Kelly flew her to New York for a show. After the event, he reportedly “bombarded” her hotel room and engaged in “abusive sex” that involved oral and vaginal intercourse.
After their relationship ended, Rodgers went into vivid detail about the alleged verbal and sexual abuse she suffered. She was allegedly locked in rooms, studios and cars for failing to sexually satisfy him. Her previous lawsuit stated that Kelly had a female assistant watching to make sure she never escaped.
Kelly was accused of knowingly infecting another woman with herpes in April 2018. He was also accused of running a “sex cult” in 2017 that holds women against their will and allegedly groomed a teenager to be his sex “pet.”
In other R. Kelly news, according to his former cellmate, the singer believed JAY-Z once wanted him dead.
Ronnie Bo spoke to Hip Hop News Uncensored about the allegation earlier this month. According to Bo, Kelly had no hard proof about the allegation, but he insisted to his cellmate that his former collaborator put a price on his head.
The pair famously joined forces in the early-mid ’00s for two albums — 2002’s The Best of Both Worlds and the 2004 follow-up Unfinished Business — and an ill-fated co-headlining tour.
Just weeks into the trek, things fell apart at New York City’s Madison Square Garden when R. Kelly left the stage over claims that men were pointing guns at him. On his way back to the stage, he was pepper-sprayed by Jigga’s close friend Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith.
The “Ignition” singer was later dropped from the tour and filed a $75million lawsuit against his tour mate for breach of contract, effectively ending their already-strained relationship.
“He felt like JAY-Z was kind of insecure because, at the time, R. Kelly was technically bigger than him,” Bo said. “He felt like [during] one of the shows when they was in Madison Square Garden [in 2004] prior to that event, he said days before the event that he was getting death threats that he felt was coming from JAY-Z.”
He continued: “Like JAY-Z was trying to basically, I don’t know if this is going to sound outrageous, but he felt like JAY-Z was trying to get him killed for whatever reason.”
