The problems and issues seem to continue to pile up for R. Kelly. A woman by the name of Faith Rodgers is taking The Pied Piper of R&B to court, demanding that he turn over his medical records about his STD status after alleging that he gave her herpes.
Rodgers claims that the 53-year old disgraced singer carried on a year long relationship with her in which he would lock her up whenever she didn’t sexually please him “adequately” and eventually learned she had contracted herpes.
Rodgers has asked the Manhattan Supreme Court to force the Chicago crooner to hand over “all documentation regarding your sexually transmitted infection status for the past five years” such as any medications, diagnoses and related documents, the court papers show.
Rodgers is also seeking Kelly’s financials, taxes, pay stubs, plane ticket receipts, hotel bills, phone records and medical records from January 2017 through January 2019, according to the court documents.
“The discovery demands requested are in the normal course of a civil action and we will respond to the pleadings as required by law,” Kelly’s lawyer Thomas Farinella said.
R. Kelly is already facing sex crime charges related to six women and girls with trial set to begin in April. Don’t be surprised if more women come forward with more allegations in the coming weeks/months.
