R. Kelly will not be charged for allegedly giving a woman an STD after cops in Dallas closed their investigation … but he isn’t out of the woods just yet.

TMZ reports … Dallas PD looked into allegations the singer gave an anonymous young woman an STD after allegedly holding her captive as a sex slave in 2017. No charges will be brought against Kelly in connection to the case .. although, it’s unclear why they reached that conclusion.

The twist is however … the alleged victim says the incident occurred in New York City and she will personally fly from Texas to Manhattan “in the near future” to file a fresh police report.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, Lydia Agu, says before she began representing her, the alleged victim was advised to file a police report in the state where she lived. Although Dallas PD tells us they closed the case because there was “no criminal element,” Agu says this is purely a jurisdictional issue because the alleged crime took place in NYC. 

Agu says her client will fly to NYC and file with the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit. Agu filed a civil lawsuit on behalf of her client — against R. Kelly — in June. 

As was reported, the woman filed a police report in 2018 claiming she’d met Kelly the year before. She claimed he restrained her, plied her with alcohol and drugs … and gave her an unspecified STD.

Her then attorney, Lee Merritt, had said the woman planned to file a civil suit against Kelly as well. 

Kelly, meanwhile, is currently being investigated by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in GA — and the State Attorney in Chicago has made a plea for any witnesses or victims to come forward.
