R. Kelly claimed one of the women accusing him of sexual battery is only in it for personal gains, and threatened in a strongly-worded letter that if she doesn’t back off he will publicly expose intimate details in her sex life.
The Blast obtained a copy of the letter Kelly sent Faith Rodgers last October following her lawsuit against the singer for sexual battery and allegedly knowingly giving her an STD.
The letter pleads with Rodgers’ attorney to force her client “to abandon this heartless effort to destroy my musical legacy for selfish, personal enrichment.” He also warns, “If she persists in court action she will be subjected to public opinion during the discovery process.”
The “discovery process” he mentions involves contacting “10 personal male witnesses testifying under oath about her sex life,” as well as a complete study on her STD claims and medical test results.
Attorney Gloria Allred mentioned the letter from Kelly during her press conference Monday morning, and made it clear that they were not going to capitulate to threats from the disgraced singer.
Kelly, who signed the letter, wrapped up his warning by claiming, “If Ms. Rodgers really cares about her own reputation she should cease her participation and association with the organizers of this negative campaign. Counter actions are in the developmental stages and due to be released soon.”
