R. Kelly has a long history of sexual misconduct allegations, and they don't seem to be slowing down.

 

The R&B singer was recently accused of leading a sex cult, according to TMZ. Now a woman is coming forward with more accusations. She claims Kelly held her against her will when she was just 19 years old, and he pumped her full of drugs and alcohol and ended up allegedly giving her an STD.

 

The woman's attorney, Lee Merritt, told the Washington Post that his client filed a report with the Dallas Police Department. She met Kelly in June in Dallas and is now accusing him of aggravated assault after she contracted an STD from him.

It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner it was horrible. I hugged her and hugged her. But she just kept saying she's in love and [Kelly] is the one who cares for her. I dont know what to do. I hope that if I get her back, I can get her treatment for victims of cults. They can reprogram her. But I wish I could have stopped it from happening.

The unidentified person also says she knew Joycelyn Savage's family. Savage, was another girl that allegedly had been held against their will by Kelly,  whose parents came out with the allegations. 

 

Savage told TMZ that she's in a "happy place with [her] life and [shes] not being brainwashed or anything like that."

 

She didn't disclose any details about spending time with Kelly, her location or if she was allowed to leave the singer.
