Texas police investigating claim that R. Kelly ‘knowingly and intentionally’ gave 19-year-old STD

Police in Dallas, Texas, are investigating a now-20-year-old woman’s allegations that controversial R & B star R. Kelly “knowingly and intentionally” gave her a sexually transmitted disease without telling her.

The Dallas Morning News reports the woman, who was 19 at the time she dated Kelly, was allegedly infected with herpes after an 11-month relationship with the singer. The accuser, who has not been identified publicly, filed a formal complaint with the Dallas Police Department against the 51-year-old “I Believe I Can Fly” crooner last week. She intends to file a lawsuit later this week, according to her lawyer Lee Merritt.

"When somebody brings something to our attention, we have a responsibility to look into it and to do our due diligence -- that's with any kind of case," Dallas police Dept. Chief Thomas Castro, who oversees investigations, told the Morning News Monday.

In the April 9 criminal complaint, the woman said she experienced “serious bodily injury” during a relationship in which Kelly also allegedly gave her illegal drugs and alcohol, Merritt told the Huffington Post. The relationship ended in February.

“Our client was the victim of several forms of criminal misconduct by Kelly, including, but not limited to, unlawful restraint, furnishing alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor, and aggravated assault (via the referenced intentional STD infection),” Merritt wrote in a press release. “These offenses occurred while our client was being groomed to join Kelly’s sex cult.”

Over the last several years, Kelly has been on the accused end of various sexual misconduct claims. In 2008, the entertainer was acquitted of child pornography charges, which came after accusations he videotaped himself having sex with underage girls.

Last year, BuzzFeed broke the story that several women alleged Kelly abused and imprisoned them as part of a “cult” at his estate in Johns Creek, Georgia. Last month, his former girlfriend accused Kelly of sexually abusing her from the age of 14.

Kelly has not responded to several requests for comment, but through his representative he told the Washington Post he "categorically denies all claims and allegations" the Dallas criminal complaint.

Despite his legal battles, Kelly has maintained a successful touring and recording career, selling more than 60 million albums.

About 40 patrons at the 90-seat venue were getting ready for an Easter eve concert when Swift walked on stage. Wiseman met Swift at a charity show when she was a teenager and knew about the surprise appearance, the Tennessean reported.

Swift’s performance was filmed as part of a documentary honoring the Bluebird Cafe’s 35th anniversary.

“I wanted to say a big thank you to the Bluebird Cafe," Swift said. “I think any songwriter in town would echo my sentiments and say that this is kind of the only place where this exists -- this particular place where you get to come and hear the writer's take on the songs they've put out into the world.”

Swift and Wiseman traded stories between songs, including one about a CMT afterparty that included plenty of Fireball Whisky.

"Should we play another song?" Swift said, changing the subject. “Did you want to hear music tonight or did you want to hear about CMT afterparties?”

"I'll tend the bar," Wiseman quipped. "I'll be ready for you."

After singing “Better Man,” Wiseman and Swift did shots of Fireball out of tiny bottles, the Tennessean reported. Wiseman wore bunny ears.

According to The Associated Press, Nugent, a National Rifle Association board member, called the teens who have attacked the NRA "mushy brained children" Friday on "The Joe Pags Show."

“The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies," Nugent said. "I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless. To attack the good, law-abiding families of America when well-known, predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless. These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable: They have no soul."

"The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given, Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. No NRA member has ever been involved in any mass shootings at all; in fact, the National Rifle Association is the lone organization that has taught firearm safety in schools, and for law enforcement, and for military, and for children's organizations and family organizations around the country for 100 years. So once again, this poor, pathetic individual is a liar."

Minnesota cemetery is newest live concert venue 

Talk about the grateful dead. There will be rock ’n’ roll music blaring at a Minnesota cemetery, and it’s a good bet the residents won’t be complaining about the noise.

>> Read more trending news

A new monthly series, Music in the Chapel, will debut at Minneapolis’ historic Lakewood Cemetery Memorial Chapel on April 8, the Star Tribune reported. 

Tickets will cost $10, and the first act booked is the all-women vocal group Anonymous Choir, which plays rock, soul and folk music.

“We simply think it’s a good way for people to come in and enjoy this beautiful setting,” Lakewood Cemetery president Rob Gjerde told the Star Tribune.

The cemetery was founded in 1871 and has an eclectic mix of famous people interred on its grounds, including former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, basketball Hall of Famer George Mikan, Pillsbury founder Charles Pillsbury, former Minnesota Twins owner Carl Pohlad and Herbert Khaury -- who was known as 1960s falsetto singer Tiny Tim.

Future concerts scheduled include David Huckfelt on May 6 and Dusty Heart on June 10. The chapel, built in 1910, holds 160, the Star Tribune reported.

Concerts at a cemetery are not new, but it is the first time Lakewood is attempting a musical event. 

“Lakewood is reimagining the role of cemeteries in everyday life, and we think this is a great way of doing that,” Gjerde said. “The venue itself is a perfect fit for shows like this.”

The concerts will held on Sunday afternoons, and alcohol will not be permitted.

Anonymous Choir leader Nona Marie Invie has a personal stake in playing the debut concert, as her great-grandmother is buried at Lakewood, the Star Tribune reported.

“I enjoy performing in non-traditional spaces, and the I think the natural reverb of the chapel will make Anonymous Choir sound really beautiful,” Invie told the Star Tribune. “I don’t have any hesitation at all about performing in a cemetery setting, It will hopefully be a beautiful spring day with the sun shining, lessening the chance of a ghoul sighting for sure.”

Sunshine on a spring day beats a touch of gray, as most Deadheads would attest.
