R. Kelly has been accused of raping a 13-year-old girl and later giving her herpes in a new allegation reported Wednesday.
Detroit detectives are looking into a new allegation regarding Kelly having sex with an underage girl. Sources told CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards the victim, now 30, was 13 years old at the time and met with Kelly at a hotel in Detroit in December of 2001.
The victim said she was visiting her mom and made contact with Kelly’s assistant.

The victim said she and Kelly had sex again a few weeks later at a Detroit recording studio. She saw Kelly repeatedly for the next four years at his home in Atlanta, and sources claim Kelly gave her herpes when she was 17 years old.
The victim does not live in Detroit anymore, so detectives are flying her in for an interview. “We are eagerly waiting to speak to the alleged victim,” Detroit Police Chief James Craig told Edwards. (RELATED: R. Kelly Arrested For Alleged Unpaid Child Support)
