In the wake of mounting outrage over allegations about R&B singer R. Kelly and his treatment of young black women, attorney Gloria Allred said that one of his accuser's would be talking to the NYPD.

About two years ago, Faith Rodgers says she was in a relationship with Kelly when she was 19, for almost a year before leaving.

Accompanied by her attorney, Gloria Allred, and her mother, Rodgers, who sued Kelly claiming that he knowingly infected her with a sexually transmitted disease and locked her in rooms for punishment, claims that the singer sent her a letter threatening to "reveal what he alleges are details of her sex life" in response to the lawsuit.

The threats in regards to Ms. Rodgers were not only limited to her, the parents have also stated phone calls and text messages have been issued to them since the docuseries aired.

Kelly allegedly wrote in the letter that "if [Rodgers] persists in court action she will be subjected to public opinion", and demanded that she procure test results "proving the origin of her STD claim", according to CBS News.
