Kelly also said that he would "help her work on it" and that he wanted to "teach [Rodgers] and show [her] how to be a woman".

The suit claims Kelly flew her to his concert in New York City several months later, and put her up in a hotel during her stay.

The 20-year-old initially met the R&B singer at a party after one of his concerts in San Antonio when she was 19 years old. "Some of them had been with him for 15 years", she said.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Faith caught herpes from Kelly. Officials advised her to record a phone call with Kelly on it-in efforts to see if he would admit to giving her the STD. Papers filed in NY accuse the musician of sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose a sexually transmitted disease. The two exchanged contact information and R. Kelly allegedly flew her to a show in NY.

Kelly has denied sexual assault allegations, and in response to Sampson and Jones' claims, his publicist stated, "R. Kelly has close friendships with a number of women who are strong, independent, happy, well cared for and free to come and go as they please".

Rodgers also claims that Kelly filmed her without her consent, locked her in secluded rooms and motor vehicles as punishment for not pleasing him sexually and subjected her to abuse.

Kaleikini said the gases that could potentially leak from the Puna plant are no different from those coming from active fissures. Scientists say lava from Kilauea is causing explosions as it enters the ocean, which can look like fireworks.

The plaintiff, Faith Rodgers, alleges she was abused "mentally, sexually and verbally" by Kelly. "Rodgers also recalled a conversation the pair had after sex, where Kelly asked her age and said, "'You know, if you're really, you know, 16, that you can tell daddy, right?'...

On other occasions, R Kelly instructed her to perform sexually while he filmed her on his iPad, she claims.

In an interview set for today (05-22-18) only on "CBS This Morning", Faith Rodgers told CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan that she was in a relationship with Kelly for almost a year before leaving.

Representatives for Kelly declined comment on this story.

Kelly and his lawyers have denied all allegations. Rodgers contends that it was "behavior created to humiliate, embarrass, intimate and shame her", and that Kelly regularly recorded her without her consent during sex.

Since then, Time's Up launched a campaign to #MuteRKelly; his music was subsequently removed from algorithmically generated playlists.
