Blind Item #5

I have written about this singer before. I have written about him a few times. He is not foreign born, but many people think he is. He had a number one song all of you know and then it went downhill from there. Below is the experience of one woman at a recent concert when she was assaulted by the singer. He threatened to sue her to try to keep her from sharing her story.



Hey everybody, so this is gonna be a bit of a long post, but I ask you to PLEASE take the time to read the whole thing. This is about an experience I recently had that I think is extremely important to spread awareness about, especially with the #metoo movement and so many brave young women coming forward and sharing their stories. The purpose of this post is not so much to get personal legal justice for myself, but to try to prevent other women from being in a similar situation. So PLEASE take the time to read to the end, and please share it after!

On Monday night (Nov.27), I went to a concert. During the show the performer brought us up on stage, which we were excited about and thought was fun. He then invited us backstage, which again, we thought was fun. Once there, one of his buddies offered us drinks. I know the number one rule is to not accept drinks from strangers, but I was in a group and was with someone whose music I have listened to for years and so for some reason trusted, which I shouldn't have. My friend and I were roofied. From here on my memory is a little hazy, and some of this is what my friends told me and from looking back at my phone the next day. Backstage, the performer was putting his hand down my pants and grabbing me. The other girls in the room said that I just seemed drunk, but that I seemed consensual (because I WAS DRUGGED) so they didn't intervene. He then invited us onto his tour bus. This is where I got separated from my friend, who was also drugged. Speaking to her the next day, she says she has a few vivid memories but other than that, she was blacked out for most of the night. After losing her, some other girlfriends and I ended up on the performer’s tour bus but somehow, luckily, we didn't stay there long. When I left the tour bus, I went to McDonald's with some of my good friends. The performer and one of his people began texting me and then came to McDonald's and tried to get me back onto the tour bus. In those texts, my responses were extremely willing and responsive because I was under the influence of a drug. So, at this point, I was so out of it I would have gone. However my friends noticed I was off and intervened. I feel VERY lucky that my friends knew the difference between drunk and drugged. I think this is a pattern with the performer and his crew, because since Monday I have heard of other girls that think they were also drugged at his other shows. Also I've since seen a bunch of similar allegations against him online. In the first 48 hours after, I think I was still in denial of the whole thing and so didn’t go get tested for drugs in my system. Because of this, there is nothing I can do in terms of legal justice. The cop I spoke to said he believed me, but that there’s no legal action to take as I don't have any real evidence other than my word.

I was sexually assaulted but not raped, thanks to the intervention of my friends. However, some girls at his other shows may not be so lucky. I feel so frustrated and sickened by the idea of him or any man doing this to other girls, I wanted to try to warn other young women. You don’t think this is going to happen to you until it does. So PLEASE share this post and help spread my story to warn other young women who are planning on going to this performer's show, and any performer's show. Don't trust people simply because they're in the public eye.

Pitbull?

Glue said...

I have no idea. I want to say Robin Thicke since he's a one-hit wonder, but not sure if he's touring.

Sarah Sarah said...

Forgive me for being ignorant, but why can't you mention the artist's name?

Sharon said...

Robin Thicke might work - his dad was Canadian, but he's from the US, and I think a lot of people think he's Canadian. (In addition to being a huge creep).

ronan pellen said...

I was thinking RT too, but I've checked for both him and Pit and no concert for that date :/

Annyoung Bluth said...

Definitely Robin Thicke. Born in LA but everyone thinks he’s Canadian like his dad. Major sleezeball.

Tricia13 said...

Cee Lo Green?
He has upcoming performances....

Tricia13 said...

Or maybe Marc Anthony.... I think many assume he was born elsewhere and not Nyc

katsm0711 said...

Did anyone see one clue pointing to who the performer could be because I didn’t.

Sd Auntie said...

Previous blinds have mentioned his preference for college students and drugs. That guy is a sweaty sleazeball.

Boldblonde said...

Can't be Pitbull. All of his songs and features are a hit.

americanpanda said...

Marc Anthony's career didn't go downhill

Shawn Pistey said...

Wyclef Jean

Herbert Arnold said...

im not very good at guessing these blinds so i very much enjoy reading the comments here but i have to say once i began reading this item robin thicke came to mind immediately.

Lurker Girl said...

Its Howie Day. Song is Collide. He’s a sleazeball.

Boldblonde said...

Wyclef didn't do any shows recently. I believe his tour start in 2018. @Shawn Pistey

Victoria said...

Lurker Girl, I don't see he performed a show on ha date though.

N. Twinkie said...

Robin Thicke is not a one hit wonder, neither is Pitbull.

ronan pellen said...

Wycleaf is not even American, btw you know you can google dates of concert before making an accusation right?

Lurker Girl said...

Victoria, dates and other facts are often fudged here. But I could be wrong.

Rinky said...

@lurkergirl .... didn't Howie Day get into trouble waaaaay back in the day for sexual assault on some female fans on a tour bus? It must be ten years ago or more by now, surely? Is he even still a thing?

Tuesdi said...

You would think it would be easier to figure out who performed that Nov 27 but I keep coming up with just Jay Z and he is not a one hit wonder. Thicke is on tour, but not that night. Google isn't being very helpful today!

Guesser said...

Maybe the person isn't on tour,but performed at a holiday type event?

Do Tell said...

Well, if it's someone who has had a number one hit in the last 15 years, then I wouldn't know it. I stopped listening to the radio eons ago.

Lurker Girl said...

Rinky, yup. He preyed on Britney when she was falling apart. He’s a really bad dude.

Do Tell said...

The blind does not say this guy was a one hit wonder. It says he had a number one hit and then things went downhill, which could mean legal problems, jail, anything.

Lurker Girl said...

@rinky, forgot to say he’s still playing smaller venues. Which would make sense for the pulling someone up on stage, texting, etc.

Do Tell said...

Collide was not a number one song.

Kiki Jones said...

Nelly was arrested for allegedly raping a woman on his tour bus at White River Amphitheater south of Seattle a couple months ago. She dropped charges saying no one would believe her. http://q13fox.com/2017/10/07/rapper-nelly-arrested-for-alleged-rape-on-tour-bus/

Boldblonde said...

Could very well be Vanilla Ice.

Truthseeker said...

I find alot of bands on Nov 27th, but very few "singers" on that date. grrrr.

Do Tell said...

Looking though lists of number one songs..gah, there has been so much absolute shit that 's gotten to the top.

Truthseeker said...

Not sure it would be Howie Day, why would anyone think he is foreign born? He did not appear to do a show on the 27th of November, I see him on the 1st of December, at a small town in Ohio.

Do Tell said...

Could be Cee Lo Green.

Truthseeker said...

T-Pain performed on Nov 27th in Beverly Hills, I guess with his given name, someone could think he is foreign born, however, I think he has had way more than 1 hit.

Do Tell said...

Nope, I take that back.

Truthseeker said...

Nope on T-Pain, his perfomance was at Steve Aoki's birthday party, so i do not think that fits.

Aaaah88L said...

T-Pain, Pitbull, Marc Anthony, and Robin Thicke are not one hit wonders so that leaves them out of this blind.

Unknown said...

What about Enrique Iglesias?

Do Tell said...

The blind does not say the artist was a one hit wonder.

Here is a list of November 27th concerts: https://www.songkick.com/search?page=1&query=November+27&type=initial&utf8=%E2%9C%93

amandamonster said...

It’s Sean Kingston

Auntie Histimine said...

Grizzly Bears in Toronto??? But, I think that was cancelled.

Victoria said...

Lurker Girl and amandamonster, you state these names as fact rather than guesses. Can you supply additional info to back up your claims?

amandamonster said...

The Facebook post this blind comes from isn’t too hard to find

Lurker Girl said...

@amandamonster got it. Wow, what a creep. But Howie’s still a jerk.

Victoria said...

Thanks amandaposter. I googled and Sean Kingston DID have a concert on 11/27 plus there is a McDonald's 5 minutes away walking distance. This guy is sick and should be thrown in jail. Sounds like a psychopath.

BayAreaGirl said...

Did someone say Wyclef? Umm, he's an immigrant refugee, hence "The Fugees."

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Yep. 100% Sean Kingston. I found the original post.

Drumstixx said...

Truthseeker said...

Darn, I found the original facebook post as well. That poor girl. She has removed his name from her post, due to possibility of legal action. I would have kept it there, if i had the texts and pics etc to back it up!

Cail Corishev said...

As with so many of these cases, I wonder: what is it you need to drug/force a girl to do, that loads of attractive girls wouldn't do voluntarily because they were invited back to the tour bus of a performer they love? Lead singers of garage bands with one self-produced album don't have to do that. Unless it's the drugging/forcing that they get off on, and not the sex, I guess.

Drumstixx said...

It looks like something similar almost happened to this girl 4 years ago http://perezhilton.com/2013-06-21-chris-brown-sean-kingston-boston-groupies-night-sex-booze-drugs#.Widyq-u6CrU

i tweeted this blind out to help the woman spread the word, please retweet? (follow me and i'll follow you unless you're an obvious bot or hateful.)

John Doe said...

Sean Kingston sounds about right. He was born down here in South Florida, but he has Jamaican Parents and they took him to Jamaica to live for a while when he was a little kid so he learned the Patois dialect there and a lot of people mistakenly believe that he's actually Jamaican. He has that innocent looking face, so I can understand why the girls wouldn't ever suspect him of being a rapist. Beautiful Girls was a HUGE #1 hit. And his career certainly went downhill from there.

lazyday603 said...

Steve Martin - One hit was "King Tut".

Boo Hearne said...

OMG! I feel sooooo old! Who the hell is Howie Day!

Ann R. Key said...

Following just sayin'... good stuff!

Unknown said...

Someone should tell the girls that they might be able to pick up the drugging in a hair analysis test.

texasrose said...

It's sad that there are so many candidates for this blind. I'm sure several guesses would be accurate even if not this specific girl.

just sayin' said...

thank you, ann r. key! did i follow you back?

Dangerous D said...

I followed you too, JS!

Bubbles said...

John Doe, regardless where Sean Kingston was born he's Jamaican. Jamaican parents don't raise anything BUT Jamaican kids.

Zophie Enzo said...

If he has a type, a trap could be set to catch him

Pink stars said...

Ahh Sean Kingston he had that hit beautiful girls.
