Anchor Stefan Holt also reports on the latest in the El Chapo drug trafficking trial, a hostage standoff in New Jersey and diaper bombs on the Lower East Side.
Kelly and Aaliyah first met in 1992, when she was 12-years-old.
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". "For example, my law team is prepared to request a production of the medical test results proving the origin of her STD claim, as well as 10 male witnesses testifying under oath about her sex life (and) complete records of her texts and FaceTime exchanges".
She says Kelly initiated "non-permissive, painful and abusive sex" and failed to inform her he had the incurable virus herpes, which she says she then contracted.More news: 'Fatal Mistake': Turkey Slams Trump Over Warning on 'Economic Devastation'
"Taking a stand against R. Kelly, someone who has been termed ´the King of R&B´ and is loved by many has not been easy", Rodgers said Monday. "We have evidence that Mr. Kelly has engaged in efforts to intimidate and retaliate against Faith Rodgers".
Kelly's camp has in the past denied that he knew the late pop star was just 15 when they Wednesday in secret in 1994.
Since the six-part documentary detailing allegations against Kelly premiered, multiple artists have apologized for working with him, including Lady Gaga, Nick Cannon and Chance the Rapper. "He didn't send any letter". "It's fiction for corporate fictions of which I am not".
The documents include a signed eviction notice, which was put on hold until January 21 for Kelly to pay.
