Two more women are accusing R&B singer R. Kelly of sexual misconduct when they were minors.

The women are represented by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, and came forward in a news conference in New York on Thursday.

Whey say the incidents happened at an after-party following one of his concerts in Baltimore in the mid 90s. One of them, who was 16 years old at the time, says she was pressured into sex with Kelly while she was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

"When I first met R. Kelly that night, I was very happy and excited because I was young and star struck," accuser Latresa Scaff said. "However now that I am an adult, I feel hurt by what he did to me when I was only 16 years old and under the influence of alcohol and marijuana which had been provided to me at this after-party."

Allred says they will be sharing their stories with federal prosecutors in New York.

The singer has faced several allegations of sexual misconduct with minors over the years, and has denied them all.
