Through her lawyer, the woman further alleges that she was "being groomed to join Kelly's sex cult", allegations of which first arose past year when parents of two young women living with Kelly told Buzzfeed they believed their daughters were being manipulated, abused, and prevented from contacting family.

Kelly has consistently denied all allegations of misconduct, including today's. According to the Daily News, the new accuser has contacted the Savages on social media, with the family praising her "bravery" in coming forward with her complaint against Kelly. She was allegedly infected in December. In 2008, he was acquitted of child pornography charges because the victim and her parents refused to testify in the court case.
She claims the singer groomed her to be one of his "sex pets" when she was just 14 years old, and that he forced her to have sex with other women, threatening her if she said no. The woman who filed the lawsuit is the latest from a handful of women who have accused the singer of keeping them captive in his Atlanta home. "But in Texas, someone who transmits a sexually transmitted disease to someone else without disclosing it first can be charged with assault", according to the Dallas Morning News report.
The woman also said that Kelly tried to force her to sign on to be a member of his "sex cult" and reveal private family matters that he could use against her if ever things would have gone left. "We need a witness to speak up".
