Singer Sean Kingston has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly gang-raping a drunk teenager back in 2010, reports said.
Carissa Capeloto, now 22, said she was raped by Kingston, his bodyguard and a member of his team at a Seattle hotel in July 2010, and she has sued them asking for $5 million minimum, stating that the incident has ruined her life, TMZ reported.
Capeloto has filed the lawsuit against all three men allegedly involved in the incident.
Capeloto claims she is barely able to sleep, has mood swings and panic attacks as a result of being gang-raped, the report said, adding that she had used drugs and had at least seven shots of vodka before being allegedly gang-raped.
Kingston reacted to the lawsuit filing legal documents stating that he did not rape her as the sex was consensual.
Detailing the incident, TMZ reported that Capeloto was invited to Kingston’s room for a meet-and-greet event following a Justin Bieber concert where the 23-year-old performed.
But, when Capeloto arrived she saw Kingston waiting naked on his bed, and his bodyguard reportedly picked her up and placed her on top of the singer. Soon, the bodyguard and another member of his troupe joined in raping her when she was "obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent," TMZ reported.
A friend of Capeloto is said to have rescued her later, and she was taken to a hospital and treated for physical injuries consistent with rape, TMZ reported Capeloto as saying.
When the incident was first reported in 2010, police officials dismissed the case, saying Capeloto was not credible enough for a legitimate case.
Soon after news of the lawsuit broke on Friday, Kingston wrote on his Twitter account: "Don't believe the hype ...I am a child of GOD and have a great relationship with him ...I live a positive life so I know I'm good."
"In this world not matter who you are what you do ... they are people trying to bring you down constantly. Praying on ya downfall gotta be strong." "The devil is working," he continued, "But I've been through the fire before and it's nothing him and his friends can do to stop me! i believe in GOD..Done."
A trial date has been set for November.
