A woman who alleges that R. Kelly attempted to groom her for his “sex cult” has reportedly filed a complaint against the musician, claiming that he infected her with an STD in December.

The latest victim, whose identity has not been released, said she was only 19-year-old when she started to date the “Ignition” singer last year. She filed a complaint last week with Dallas Police and is preparing a federal civil complaint.

Lee Merritt, the woman’s lawyer, contended that his client terminated her relationship with Kelly in February, but that the union had been filled with “criminal misconduct” by the singer, which includes “unlawful restraint, furnishing alcohol and drugs to a minor, and aggravated assault.”

The complaint also states that Kelly was grooming the woman to become part of his alleged “sex cult,” and that she had been informed she would have to sign a contract and provide sensitive information about her and her family as “collateral.”

One of the singer’s reps “categorically” denied all of the accusations in a statement to the Washington Post.

Kelly’s repulsive lifestyle first garnered attention from the media in July due to a BuzzFeed exposé that included interviews with Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage, who maintained their daughter Jocelyn was being held against her will at one his residences.

The singer’s most recent accuser reportedly reached out via social media to the Savages, who hailed her “bravery” in coming forward with her allegations against R. Kelly, and showed hope that she could potentially be the person that helps put an end to his crimes.

“We felt that the reason he’s holding the girls is he has some kind of STD that he couldn’t cure,” Timothy said to the Post.

Various accusers have come forward since the article was published, with all telling stories of a manipulative singer who used his fame to seduce them into a controlling “sex pad,” where he dominated everything from how they dressed to who they spoke to.

One of Kelly’s accuser, Kitti Jones, has spoken out multiple times about the mental, verbal and physical abuse she experienced over the course of her two-year involvement with Kelly.

In a recent documentary, she said that the singer had started to groom another girl to be one of his “sex pets” when she was only 14 years old. She also stated that he forced her to have sex with other women, and would threaten her if she refused.

“Ninety-nine percent of the time, I didn’t want to do it, and I would tell him I didn’t want to,” she said back in October.
