Accuser Says Letter Proves R. Kelly Threatened Her

Faith Rodgers , 21, spoke to New York police Monday and unveiled a threatening letter allegedly written by R. Kelly last October.

Rodgers is suing Kelly for nonconsensual acts he allegedly forced her into in 2017, when she was 19.

In the notarized letter to attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Rodgers, Kelly allegedly wrote “if she persists in court action, she will be subjected to public opinion,” that she should have test results “proving the origin of her STD claim.” The letter also said Kelly would request “10 personal male witnesses testifying about her sex life.”

“If Ms. Rodgers really cares about her own reputation, she should cease her participation and association with the organizers of this negative campaign,” the letter allegedly signed by Kelly says.

Kelly’s attorney told CBS News the letter is “a fake” saying “R. Kelly can’t read, write or type. He didn’t send any letter.”

Rodgers’ attorney said of Kelly’s future: “You better think of something quick. You’re running out of time.”

“Mr. Kelly, your disgusting tactics will not prevent women who allege that they were victimized from telling their truth.”

Last week, an arrest warrant was issued for his former manager, James Mason, for an incident report in May 2018 where threats were made against one of the girls’ fathers. The report quoted Mason threatening to kill Timothy Savage and family: “I’m going to do harm to you and your family, when I see you I’m gonna get you, I’m going to f**king kill you,” Mason was quoted as saying in the police report, obtained by CNN.

As women come forward post the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary, Kelly maintains his innocence.
Steven Greenberg, told NBC News that neither he nor Kelly has watched the documentary and said of the accusers, “They’re just haters trying to ruin his career.”

Several artists have spoken out in support of the accusers, including John Legend, Keke Palmer, Lady Gaga, and even Kelly’s own daughter, Joann Kelly. Celine Dion and Chance the Rapper have reportedly pulled their music collaborations with him from streaming services.

Rodgers said she could forgive Kelly, but also believes he should be in jail. Additionally, she said: ” He needs help not only mental help he needs spiritual help.”

Reader Question: Do you think this letter will result in charges being brought against Kelly
