British singer and former JLS star, Oritse Williams has been charged with raping a fan in a hotel room after a concert.
The 31-year-old singer from Croydon, London, allegedly raped a 20-year-old waitress after promoting his new solo album at Gorgeous club in Wolverhampton on the 1st of December, 2016. He was arrested the following day on 2nd of December, 2016 and bailed twice but has now been charged with rape.
After the arrests, his management issued a statement where the pop star denied any wrongdoing.
They told The Mirror: “Ortise denies the allegations against him. The matter is in the hands of the police and it would be totally wrong for us to comment further.”
His friend, Jamien Nagadhana, was also charged with sexual assault over the same alleged attack at four-star Ramada Park Hall hotel.
Confirming the charge, a West Midlands Police spokesman said: ‘We’ve charged two men with sexual offences after an allegation of rape at a Wolverhampton hotel in December 2016.
‘Both men are due to appear at Walsall and Aldridge Magistrates Court on 11 October’.
