Allred, who represents three women with accusations against Kelly, said she and Rodgers were meeting the New York Police Department later Monday to discuss the investigation.
"R. Kelly can't read, write or type", the lawyer said.
In a press conference today streamed via various news outlets, Rodgers and attorney Gloria Allred said that after the suit was filed last spring, Kelly sent Rodgers a letter "threatening to reveal what he alleges are details of her sex life", and threatened to make public private text messages and photos.
Rodgers´ team also said Kelly wrote to her attorney Lydia Hills saying he was prepared to demand medical evidence to support her claim about the STD and that he would challenge her version of events by putting up male witnesses who would testify under oath about her sex life.

President Trump warned Erdogan that he would " devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds ", in a tweet posted Sunday night. The explosion happened while the troops and American workers were "conducting a local engagement" in Manbij, officials said.
Attorney Gloria Allred on Monday accused singer R. Kelly of "taking his playbook from Donald Trump" when it comes to the treatment of alleged victims of sexual misconduct. If she persists in court action she will be subjected to public opinion during the discovery process. "That's what it does", Rodgers said of the allegedly threatening correspondence.
Allred claimed that after "Surviving R. Kelly" aired, a number of revealing photographs that had been attached to the initial letter - but were not included in the documents presented Monday - were posted on a Facebook page defending Kelly called "Surviving Lies", which was live for several hours on January 7 before Facebook removed it. No woman should be criticized, shamed or retaliated against for speaking the truth.
"We are here today to let Mr. Kelly know in no uncertain terms that he can not and will not intimidate his alleged victims into keeping silent", Allred said.
Though he was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, Kelly's behavior and relationship with young women-he married the late singer Aaliyah when she was 15-was not unknown; but now, some say with hindsight, it had mostly been ignored for years thanks to his network of protecters. "I was vulnerable and impressionable when I met him at 19". "Just as they have been held accountable, so will you".
"This has been building for quite a while, but now, it's approaching a tsunami for Mr. Kelly", she said.
