Kelly and Aaliyah first met in 1992, when she was 12-years-old.

R. Kelly doesn't have time to be upset over the many artists pulling their collabs with him from streaming services - he's got more pressing matters on his hands. Rodgers was accompanied by attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing three of Kelly's accusers.

Faith Rodgers, one of the women accusing R. Kelly of sexual misconduct in the recent Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly", said in a press conference Monday morning that she has received threats and retaliation from the singer.

Besides tracking his life, career and creation of Miramax and The Weinstein Company, it also documents the shocking allegations that emerged on 4 October 2017 in an expose in The New York Times detailing his decades of abuse, and his fall from grace.

In a response to The Post, his lawyer Steve Greenberg said the letter shared by Allred and Hill "obviously was not authored or signed by Mr Kelly, nor sent on his behalf".

The letter was sent in October to one of Rodgers' lawyers in NY, a few weeks after the singer was served with the lawsuit accusing him of demeaning her, locking her in rooms and vehicles, and subjecting her to "non-permissive, painful and abusive sex".

In addition to, "If Ms. Rodgers really cares about her own reputation she should cease her participation and association with the organizers of this negative campaign".

Sexual predators like Kelly are among the most hated of inmates in jail and prison because if you ask any other inmate in jail or in prison which type of inmate they hate the most, about 9 out of 10 of them would say "chomo" which is prison slang for child molester.

Rodgers, now 21, gave a brief statement, saying, "No woman should be victim shamed, harassed or retaliated against because she asserted her rights and spoke her truth".

Kelly has vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

Also, another factor that plays into the rampant sexual violence against young black girls and women today is encouraged and perpetuated by corporate sponsored bastardized rap music on the radio in which these corporate puppet rappers say things like "I'll rape her and then murder her" or "Put molly in her drink and she ain't even knew it".
