‘SHOCKED’: JLS fans share their disbelief as Oritsè is accused of rape

In light of the serious allegations made against Oritsè Williams over the weekend, a number of JLS fans have taken to Twitter to defend him, and send him their support.

Fans have been showing their support for Oritsé, claiming that he should be treated like an "innocent until proven guilty".

A number of fans have also been complaining about the fact that Oritsé was named in the media, despite the fact that he has not yet been charged with a crime. 

Oritsé Williams' management released a statement today denying the allegations, where they added that "the matter is in the hands of the police and it would be totally wrong for us to comment any further."

On Sunday, a woman reported that she had been raped by JLS star Oritsé ­Williams after a concert in Wolverhampton.

The woman told police that Oritsé, 30, invited her and her pal back to his hotel after the gig, and after a few drinks, the girls decided to call a taxi to take them home.

According to the woman's statement, one of the women had left a handbag in the hotel room that contained a purse, so she went to retrieve it, and it was at that time that the alleged rape occurred. 

Oritsé was arrested, but has since been bailed from jail, and is set to appear in court in February 2017.
