From BBC - April 17, 2018

R Kelly is facing a fresh allegation of sexual misconduct, from a former partner who claims he "intentionally" infected her with an STD in Dallas.

According to her lawyer, the unnamed woman was the victim of "unlawful restraint" during her 11-month relationship with the R&B singer.

It is claimed that Kelly, 51, attempted to make the woman a member of the "sex cult" he is alleged to have run.

The Dallas Police Department has said it is looking into the allegation.

In a statement issued in advance of a press conference scheduled for Wednesday, lawyer Lee Merritt claims his client was 19 when she and Kelly began a sexual relationship.
