Police have confirmed that they are investigating new sexual misconduct allegations made against R Kelly.
According to the Washington Post, a woman claims that the R&B performer gave her a STD and plied her with drugs and alcohol when she was 19.
A statement from the unnamed woman’s attorney accuses Kelly of “unlawful restraint, furnishing alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor, and aggravated assault (via the referenced intentional STD infection)”.
The woman says she was in a relationship with Kelly for eight months until February of this year.
She reportedly filed a complaint with the Dallas Police Department last week and is said to be preparing a federal civil complaint against the star.
A Dallas Police Department representative has since told Spin that they could “confirm that we are looking into a reported incident”.
A representative for Kelly told the Post that the singer “categorically denies all claims and allegations”.
