Alleged R. Kelly victim says lawsuit against singer led to threats, retaliation

"One threat was contained in a letter Mr. Kelly wrote to Lydia Hills, an attorney for Ms. Rodgers, as follows: 'If she persists in court actions, she will be subject to public opinion during the discovery process".

Attorney Gloria Allred says a woman accusing R. Kelly of sexual abuse has been threatened by the singer to get her to drop a lawsuit that claims Kelly abused her and gave her a sexually transmitted disease.

R. Kelly has been under scrutiny since the airing of the Lifetime docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly".

But he had a good session with his swing coach in Dallas, and it paid off two weeks later on the Gulf side of the Mexican coast. He posted a 14-under 126 halfway total, one stroke better than fellow American Andrew Putnam, who shot a bogey-free 65.

"No woman should be criticized, shamed or retaliated against for speaking the truth", Rodgers said at the news conference. "In addition, he posted private photos of her", Allred said during the press conference.

During the almost year-long relationship, the 52-year-old singer mentally, verbally, and sexually abused her, in addition to regularly locking her away in various places and intentionally infecting her with herpes, she claimed in a lawsuit against him, according to The New York Times.

It reads she should stop if she "really cares about her own reputation". "Counter actions are in the developmental stages and due to be released soon".

The Bears led the National Football League with 27 interceptions this past season, including 21 from the defensive backs. Fangio, a first-time head coach and former Bears defensive coordinator, will call the plays.

Rodgers filed the lawsuit in May, slightly over a year after she says she met the singer - known for hits including "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition" - following a concert in San Antonio, Texas.

Allred, who CBS reports is also representing two more of Kelly's accusers, commented to "CBS This Morning" on what appears to be a time of reckoning for Kelly. He has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls. "I apologise to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out".

His 2017 Buzzfeed story, detailing how parents claimed their daughter was being held against her will by the singer, sparked a new wave of attention and more women coming forward about Kelly's alleged "cult" and his "brainwashing" of young women.
