Faith Rodgers

Faith Rodgers was just 19 years old, when she met then 50-year-old R. Kelly in San Antonio at his concert. After nearly two months of communication via phone calls, texting and FaceTiming with R. Kelly, Faith flew out to attend his show where they later began a sexual relationship. When Faith later discovered she contracted a sexually transmitted disease from Kelly, she contacted authorities in hopes of saving other women similar to her from getting involved with him in the future. Faith detailed her story in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly documentary which lead to Faith enduring unimaginable harassment from supporters of R. Kelly. As a survivor, Rodgers continues to fight for the justice that she and the other women deserve, and hopes to help protect other young girls that can fall victim to similar abuse.
