R. Kelly He Gave Me Booze, Drugs & an STD ... Underage Woman Claims

A new claim accuses the singer of infecting an unidentified woman with an STD and says the victim ended their relationship in February.

She reportedly filed a complaint with the Dallas Police Department last week and is said to be preparing a federal civil complaint against the star.

The sexual assault allegations against R. Kelly just keep coming in, with a new report claiming illicit drugs, alcohol, and an unspecified STD have been thrown into the legal mix. In a recent, lengthy profile for Buzzfeed, Chicago music journalist Jim DeRogatis, who has been pursuing the R. Kelly beat for years, detailed what he calls a "sex cult", that the singer operates out of his home in Atlanta.

'Mr Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name'.

The complaint also states that if the woman had joined Kelly's alleged group, she would have to sign a contract and provide sensitive personal information about her family to serve as "collateral".


Yet the singer continues to tour and has avoided criminal charges or industry reprisal despite national media attention on the claims, the #MeToo movement, and new allegations of underage abuse made in an upcoming documentary.

Merritt was recommended to represent her by Savage's attorney, Gerald A. Griggs, after she reached out to the Savages to let them know that she had spent time with their daughter, Jocelyn, who said a year ago to TMZ that she was not being held hostage by Kelly but wouldn't tell them her exact location. Jocelyn's parents, Timothy and Jonjelyn, were part of the BuzzFeed report.

Others say Kelly controlled their every move, what they wore and who they interacted with. The Savages said they have not seen their daughter since December 2016. Timothy Savage said on Sunday that he nearly immediately asked whether she had a sexual relationship with Kelly and if she had been tested for an STD. "We need a witness to speak up. We felt from the beginning that the reason he's holding the girls is he has some kind of STD that he couldn't cure". The father, Timothy Savage, immediately encouraged her to get tested and helped point her in the direction of attorney Merritt.

Merritt is expected to hold a news conference Wednesday at Dallas Police headquarters.
