She claims the pair then entered a relationship for a year, in which Kelly allegedly locked her in rooms for "failing to fulfil his sexual desires", and that Kelly enlisted a female confidante to ensure Rodgers was unable to leave.
Despite that, they still ended up being intimate even if she did not want to and Kelly even recorded it on his iPad without consent!
The plaintiff, Faith Rodgers, alleges she was abused "mentally, sexually and verbally" by Kelly. She said that she met Kelly in 2017 when she was 19 years old, and they were in a relationship for about one year. Kelly brought the young woman into New York City to attend one of his shows. "Rodgers also recalled a conversation the pair had after sex, where Kelly asked her age and said, "'You know, if you're really, you know, 16, that you can tell daddy, right?'... Rodgers also says that during the alleged assault, Kelly "insulted and criticized" her for a lack of participation.
In her lawsuit, Ms Rodgers, 20, said that she must receive medical care and take medication for the rest of her life after being infected with herpes.
In the same year, a video emerged that allegedly showed Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Rodgers believes that Kelly was planning on bringing her into a group of women who travel with him...a group of women he "raises". TMZ reports that families of the women involved with the disgraced singer-songwriter have reached out to the network to tell their stories. "You know? So I was just waiting for it to be over".
