For decades, R&B singer R. Kelly has been plagued by rumors of inappropriate relationships with underage girls and women, and last week, a woman filed a complaint with the Dallas Police Department, alleging that the superstar had committed sexual misconduct and given her an STD.
She is now preparing a federal civil complaint against Kelly, according to her Philadelphia-based attorney Lee Merritt. She claims Kelly is guilty of aggravated assault because of the STD.
In the complaint, the singer is also accused of attempting to convince her to join the alleged "sex cult" news reports have linked him to, and that she was asked to sign a contract and divulge sensitive information about her and her family as "collateral".

R Kelly's extensive history of sexual misconduct is a matter of intense public scrutiny and conversation and continues to be almost ten years after he was acquitted during a trial over child pornography.
'Mr Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name'. They commended her "bravery" for taking action against him and said they're confident she could be the one to stop his reported lifestyle of taking advantage of younger women. After she read the article, she reached out to the parents in the story and told them that she had met their daughter, Jocelyn Savage, 22. "We need a witness to speak up".
A representative for Kelly told the paper that his client "categorically denies all claims and allegations".
Merritt is expected to hold a news conference Wednesday at Dallas Police headquarters.
