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 filed the lawsuit in May, slightly over a year after she says she met the singer - known for hits including "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition" - following a concert in San Antonio, Texas. (The Facebook page was taken down after less than a day, for violating the social network's Community Standards.) Rodgers' mother also said in the press conference that she had received threats from Kelly.

He told The Associated Press that "it's hard not to see a link" between the case and Canada's arrest of Meng. Hua said: "Kovrig now is not a diplomat, and he came to China with an ordinary passport and business visa".

"For example, my law team is prepared to request the production of the medical test results proving the origin of her STD claim, as well as 10 personal male witnesses testifying under oath about her sex life in support of her claim and complete records of her text/face time message exchanges".

Rodgers, 21, sued Kelly in April, alleging he "initiated nonconsensual" sex acts and intentionally infected her with genital herpes.

In the letter, a person identifying himself as R. Kelly warned a lawyer for the woman, Faith Rodgers, that if she persisted with the suit, she would be "subjected to public opinion". No woman should be criticized, shamed or retaliated against for speaking the truth.

Kelly denies any misconduct. She participated in the recently aired Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which cataloged years of accusations against the singer.

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 R&B singer has been ordered to pay $173,000 in back rent and court fees by Monday, or he'll be evicted from the warehouse.

The studio has been the site of recent protests against Kelly, with those involved calling on promoters to stop booking his concerts.
