Kelly's accuser claims she met him at a fan meet and greet in a Minneapolis mall, and ended up getting a phone number with the autograph. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, she told police, when she called the number, she was told to go to a hotel suite, and Kelly eventually met her there.

In docs, she says they had small talk and then Kelly gave her $200 to dance ... and then helped her out of her clothing. He also disrobed, according to the accuser ... who says Kelly began masturbating while rubbing her genitals.

She says when the dance was over, Kelly said he'd see her at his concert later that night.

The accuser says she attended as a guest of Kelly's. She says she wouldn't have been able to get in without the pass because she wasn't 18 yet.

The woman first reported the alleged incident to cops on Jan. 11, 2019. 

Interestingly, that is just 3 days after Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx held a news conference urging any potential victims of Kelly to come forward. 

If convicted of the allegations in Hennepin County, Kelly faces up to 5 years in prison and a $10k fine. 

R. Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, just weighed in on the new charges ... tweeting, "give me a break. This is beyond absurd."

Kelly is currently in custody in New York, where he’s pled not guilty to 5 federal criminal charges including kidnapping and racketeering. The New York case is separate from Kelly’s 13-count indictment in Illinois federal court, which includes charges of child porn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. Kelly is also fighting 10 charges of aggravated sexual abuse in Cook County, Illinois.
