Dallas police are investigating allegations that the American singer R. Kelly “knowingly and intentionally” transmitted herpes to a woman without her knowledge during their 11-month relationship, according to Dallas Morning News.
The 20-year-old, who requested anonymity, “intends to file a complaint before the end of the week,” her lawyer told the newspaper, something she has already done according to the Washington Post.
In Texas, a person who transmits a sexually acquired disease to a partner after failing to reveal that he or she “could be charged with assault”.
In the statement of counsel for the victim, it is stated that “our client was the victim of several forms of misconduct on the part of Kelly, including kidnapping, alcohol and drug consumption by a minor, and aggravated assault (by intentional transmission of the disease) “. R. Kelly indicated through his representatives that he denied the charges en bloc.
The woman would have met the singer behind the scenes of one of his concerts, before being “trained … over the next few months” to join his cult of sex.
She wants the singer to “receive therapy and donate to causes for abused women.”
