Kelly's accuser in the suit is one of the alleged victims at the center of pending criminal charges against Kelly, her attorney confirmed to the Chicago Tribune earlier this year. The woman is identified in criminal court documents as H.W.

Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four separate alleged victims, three of whom were underage at the time.

Cook County prosecutors have alleged that Kelly's manager approached the girl as she celebrated her 16th birthday at a restaurant, gave her Kelly's card and told her to contact him. Her mother intercepted the card, but H.W. later found it in the mom's purse and began to have sexual encounters with the singer about once a month, prosecutors said.
