Kelly definitely knew Aaliyah was only 15 at the time of marriage

Faith Rodgers, one of R. Kelly's alleged victims, claims that Kelly threatened her with retaliation for filing a lawsuit past year against him alleging that he abused her and knowingly infected her with a sexually transmitted disease.

High-profile women´s rights attorney Gloria Allred told reporters on Monday that her client Faith Rodgers, 20, faced "efforts to intimidate and retaliate" from Kelly after she filed the lawsuit now pending in New York´s Supreme Court.

Allred claimed that after "Surviving R. Kelly" aired, a number of revealing photographs that had been attached to the initial letter - but were not included in the documents presented Monday - were posted on a Facebook page defending Kelly called "Surviving Lies", which was live for several hours on January 7 before Facebook removed it.

Appearing on Good Morning America last week and discussing R Kelly's rumoured marriage to Aaliyah when she was 15, his lawyer Steven Greenberg said, "My understanding is that she did not claim to be 15 and, in order to get married, she had to lie about her age".

Her mother, Kelly Rodgers, said she and her husband had also received threats and intimidation attempts.

Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly, said in an interview on Friday that there was no evidence to support the accusations contained in the documentary, calling it a "for-profit hit piece full of falsities, full of mistakes".


In a prepared statement at the press conference, Rodgers, speaking very quietly, said, "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".

Kelly's lawyer told Buzzfeed, "It obviously was not authored or signed by Mr. Kelly, nor sent on his behalf".

Kelly denies any misconduct. Color-of-Law is NOT law.

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".

The documents include a signed eviction notice, which was put on hold until January 21 for Kelly to pay.
