NBC Chicago reports, in response, R. Kelly sent a letter to an attorney for Rodgers stating if matters "persists in court action she will be subjected to public opinion during the discovery process".

Faith Rodgers and her lawyer Gloria Allred spoke on Monday at a news conference in NY.

If Ms. Rodgers really cares about her own reputation she should cease her participation and association with the organizers of this negative campaigns.

In a prepared statement at the press conference, Rodgers, speaking very quietly, said, "Taking a stand against R. Kelly, someone who has been termed "the King of R&B" and is loved by many, has not been easy".

Rodgers was one of many women who participated in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" docuseries.

The letter said the singer would demand medical documentation of her claim that he gave her herpes, force her to turn over texts and social media posts, and have "10 personal male witnesses testifying under oath about her sex life". "Counter actions are in the developmental stages and due to be released soon".

NY: A woman who sued R. Kelly accusing the American R&B star of sexual battery, knowingly infecting her with a sexually transmitted disease, and false imprisonment says he has threatened her.

Allred, who represents three women with accusations against Kelly, said she and Rodgers were meeting the New York Police Department later Monday to discuss the investigation.

There have been suggestions that Kelly never actually knew her real age, however, a video has emerged of R. Kelly describing her as "14-years-old" while recording with her in a studio.

"We are here today to let Mr. Kelly know in no uncertain terms that he can not and will not intimidate his alleged victims into keeping silent", Allred said. "And that had to be done in person, and that is why she's in NY".

Allred was also the lawyer for an accuser of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, whose allegations of rape and other criminal sexual misconduct promptly ended his career.

Still, Allred said she would continue to "do everything in [her] power to support those who claim they are victims" moving forward.
