R. Kelly Under Investigation in Detroit for Allegedly Giving Herpes to 13-Year-Old Girl

March 7, 2019


R. Kelly's legal problems show no signs of slowing down, as the R&B star is now under investigation in Detroit for allegedly infecting a 13-year-old girl with herpes. Page Sixreports that the now-30-year-old victim claims she and Kelly had sex in a Motor City hotel in December 2001, and a few weeks later at a local recording studio. She claims he gave her herpes during one of her visits to his Atlanta home over the next four years. “We are eagerly waiting to speak to the alleged victim,” says Detroit Police Chief James Craig. Kelly was also sued in New York Supreme Court earlier this year by 21-year-old Faith Rodgers, who likewise claims she got herpes from Kelly when she was 19.
