R Kelly, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has faced claims of sexual abuse for more than 20 years.

Kelly, 52, has been accused of decades of sexual abuse against women.

Latresa Scaff and Rochelle Washington claim they attended an R. Kelly tour stop in Baltimore in 1995 or 1996. They were then invited to an afterparty with Kelly, where they were offered cocaine and marijuana.

She said Kelly told them to come to his hotel room, where he had sex with her even though she was under the influence of marijuana and alcohol and could not consent.

Speaking to the press, Gloria Allred, the lawyer who is representing Washington, Scaff and multiple R Kelly accusers, said: "To R Kelly, I'm sending this message". She said he wanted a threesome with the two teens but Washington said no and escaped to the bathroom.

The Ignition singer was the subject of a documentary, Surviving R Kelly, that included allegation of Kelly's alleged sexual preference for underage women and rumours he created his own "sex cult".

"When Kelly was alone with me", Scaff told reporters, "he asked me to perform oral sex on him". "You have been able to get away with your predatory misconduct for far too long". The latest round arises in the wake of the Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly" - which recounts multiple allegations in graphic details and re-airs on February 25 - along with reports of a new sex tape that allegedly shows the singer engaging in sex acts with an underage girl, according to reports in CNN and The New Yorker.

He responded Wednesday night to questions about a possible indictment in Cook County.

While Kelly was arrested and tried after a similar tape emerged in 2002, he was acquitted after the woman in the video declined to testify against him.

Two more women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the R&B singer R Kelly. And the new year has brought a popular docuseries from Lifetime on the allegations, a flurry of disavowals from former collaborators, protests from activist groups, and public pressure that led to his record label dropping him. Allred said she believes there is now an open federal investigation into allegations against R. Kelly. "They rigged the trial".
