More bad news has surfaced around disgraced singer R. Kelly who dropped a new album last December and recently collaborated with Lady Gaga.

Throughout his career, the 47-year-old Grammy Award-winner has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women and teen girls, although he was never convicted. In the 1990s, he was involved in a high-profile scandal involving teenage girls just before his notorious child pornography indictment in 2002. At other times, victims kept quiet and settled their cases out of court, although sources say not all the settlements have been made public, reports Jezebel.com.

It also turns out that the R&B crooner settled a sexual misconduct lawsuit as recently as 2010. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Kelly was accused of sexual harassment by his 36-year-old housekeeper, but he paid $100,000 to settle the case out of court and avoid litigation.

Insiders say that the woman worked for Kelly for a year, starting in 2008 and that the “Bump n’ Grind” singer allegedly groped her and used inappropriate language. A source close also told Page Six that the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer is currently facing conflict in his inner circle and that more secrets about him are “starting to float to the surface about the millions he paid out over the years to a wide variety of women.”

The Post continues to say that there has been disagreements within Kelly’s camp and secrets are “starting to float to the surface about the millions he paid out over the years to a wide variety of women.”
