American singer, Robert Sylvester Kelly known publicly as R Kelly is facing a fresh allegation of sexual misconduct from a former partner who claims he “intentionally” infected her with an STD in Dallas.

According to the accuser’s lawyer, the unnamed woman was the victim of “unlawful restraint” during her 11-month relationship with the R&B singer.

Reports indicate Kelly, 51, attempted to make the woman a member of the “sex cult” he is alleged to have run.

The Dallas Police Department has said they are looking into the allegation but R Kelly denies holding women in ‘cult’.

The history of allegations against R Kelly was in a statement issued in advance of a press conference scheduled for Wednesday.

Lawyer Lee Merritt claims his client was 19 when she and Kelly began a sexual relationship.
