Last month, alawsuit was filed against the Grammy-nominated pop country singer by a former manager containing disturbing allegations of rape, sexual assault, false imprisonment and sex trafficking.
The lawsuit was filed in the federal court in Tennessee by a woman, identified only as Jane Doe, who used to be a member of Allen’s management team at Wide Open Music. The woman claims that, while she was managing Allen, he repeatedly raped her and subjected her to sexual assault for a period of 18 months.
Allen has denied the allegations, admitting to a consensual sexual relationship with the woman but denying that he assaulted her.
But now, another woman has come forward with allegations that she too was sexually assaulted by the country star.
In a lawsuit filed today in Tennessee federal court, the unnamed woman alleges that she was randomly approached by Allen on a plane last year, and that the two began engaging in daily communications over the phone. The woman then claims she agreed to meet Allen in Las Vegas, where she was then sexually assaulted.
The woman admits to initially agreeing to have sex with Allen, but only on the condition that he used protection. The lawsuit alleges Allen then penetrated the woman without a condom and told her that he wanted to get her pregnant, and when she told him no, Allen refused and continued to have unprotected sex with the woman despite her repeatedly asking him to stop.
The lawsuit claims that after the alleged assault, the woman noticed Allen’s phone hidden in the closet to record the sexual encounter without her knowledge. The woman then allegedly took the phone and flew home, where she turned the phone in to police and filed a report against Allen.
In addition to Allen, the lawsuit also names Allen’s bodyguard, who the woman alleges asked her for her number on behalf of the country star, and was staying in the next room during the alleged assault.
The victim, named only as Jane Doe #2, is suing Allen for battery, assault, invasion of privacy and emotional distress.
Her attorney told Varietythat she has been approached by more accusers, and she expects more lawsuits against Allen to be filed:
“We have spoken to more women, and I expect that there will be more lawsuits.”
The country singer has not responded to the latest lawsuit, but announced in April that he and his wife Alexis would be divorcing, and that she was also pregnant with the couple’s third child.
After the previous lawsuit was filed, Allen issued a statement on Instagram apologizing to his wife and children while talking about the “temptations” of the music business.
“I want to publicly apologize to my wife Alexis for humiliating her with my affair. I’m embarrassed that my choices have brought shame on her. That’s something that she did not deserve at all.
I also want to apologize to my children for being a poor example of a man and a father.
I’m working on becoming a better person that my kids can be proud of. My goal is to be better than the generation before me.
This business takes so much from you. It’s full of temptations that can cripple you and ruin everything you’ve built. I’m ashamed that I wasn’t strong enough to withstand them. I will no longer be a victim of my weaknesses.
I challenge everyone to seek help when they need it. Do not be afraid of your weakness, surround yourself with people that WILL help you.
