Rodgers stated that he forced her to engage in sexual acts without her consent.

She said they met in 2017 after he did a performance in Texas. Rodgers was 19 at the time.

"I think it hurt him to see me speaking," she said after his conviction. "He hadn't seen me since I was 19. You see somebody four years later, and they're against you, it's different."
