Singer R. Kelly accused of sexually assaulting 13-year-old girl at Detroit hotel in 2001

Singer charged in connection with other alleged incidents last month

DETROIT - A woman said R. Kelly had sex with her at a Detroit hotel in 2001, when she was 13 years old.

Detroit police said they are aware of the allegations, but they have not spoken with the woman.

She alleges that Kelly had a sexual relationship with her for years and gave her herpes when she was 17.

The R&B singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse last month in connection with other alleged situations. Kelly repeatedly denied allegations against him during an interview this week that, at times, got heated.

It's not the first time the singer has been in the spotlight for alleged sexual abuse.

Jurors acquitted Kelly in 2008 of child pornography charges stemming from a video prosecutors alleged showed Kelly having sex with a girl as young as 13.
