Singer R. Kelly allegedly gave a 19-year-old fan a sexually transmitted disease by having unprotected sex with her despite knowing that he had herpes, new court documents claim. I'm like. com-on, are they doing everything to make R. Kelly look bad or not? This is just a bad look for the singer.
So recently, new documents was filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, that went on to claim that Kelly met with Doe after the performance at a hotel room that he booked for her and had unprotected sex with her.

Now hear this, Prior to the intercourse, the defendant learned from his health care provider that he had contracted herpes. So i'm thinking in my mind, why would I have sex with someone who has a transmitted disease? But she did anyway.
Prosecutors previously claimed that Kelly also exposed an unnamed minor, known only as Jane Doe No. 5, to the disease, The New York Times reports. They did not disclose if Doe No. 5 also contracted the disease.
While prosecutors claimed to have confirmed the diagnosis by accessing Kelly’s records, Douglas Anton, an attorney for Kelly, said in response to the new allegations that the singer’s accusers were trying “to make the alleged events as salacious as humanly possible,”
Anton previously claimed that there was “zero evidence” that Kelly was aware that he had herpes, and expressed doubt that Doe’s diagnosis could be traced back to her relationship with Kelly.
Kelly was previously accused of knowingly spreading herpes by a woman named Faith Rodgers, who claimed in 2019 that she met Kelly when she was 19 and that she contracted herpes during her time with him.
The musician has long maintained his innocence, but faces a plethora of charges in New York, Illinois, and Minnesota. He has been in custody since his arrest in Chicago in July, and is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago.
