Former JLS star Oritsé Williams has spoken out for the first time about being "tormented" by a rape accusation for the past three years.

The 32-year-old was accused of raping a fan in 2016 after a show in Wolverhampton, and was charged with the offence in September 2018.

The singer was unanimously cleared of rape in May of this year by a jury in Wolverhampton Crown Court after two hours and 17 minutes of deliberation.

The star spoke about his ordeal on Good Morning Britain today, revealing that he couldn't find work for the last three years;

"It's been horrific," digressed Oritsé. "I haven't been able to work for three years. I had this accusation hanging over my head every single day from when I woke up to when I went to sleep. It's just completely tormented me.

But I had two choices, let it drag me under and destroy me or stay strong and hope the truth would come out, which it eventually did," he continued.

"The worst moment has been the effect it's had on my family. I tried to protect my mother for the whole thing. When you’re in the public eye you can’t stop it."

He added; "My family as so loving. I've had so much unconditional love and support from them all and my friends.

"Even now public and my fans have been amazing. Come out and openly supported me. It has been trial by social media."

Oritsé spoke about the sympathy he has for those who call for anonymity in rape trials, telling the GMB hosts;

"I absolutely would have wanted my name to get cleared as quickly a possible and move forward with my life with my family. We have to continue to encourage real victims to come forward. There has to be consideration on both sides."

Oritsé has been working on his song-writing while hiding from the spotlight over the last three years;

"I’ve had a lot of time on my hands over the last few years. I've been reconnecting as a song writer and immersing myself in my music. I believe I've written some of the best songs of my life in this period.

"I’ve poured my heart out into these songs, bled all over them. At some point when the time is right I want to share them with people."

Oritsé’s £3 million mansion burned down in a suspected arson attack only days after his acquittal.

He had handed over the house to his ex-girlfriend after their break-up, but was still devastated by the arson attack;

"I had so many amazing memories there with my family and friends. Seeing what happened to somewhere I once loved was devastating. There’s an ongoing police investigation so hopefully we will get some answers."

Oritsé’s bandmate Marvin Humes said his friend is “getting his confidence back” after his acquittal, and the three-year ordeal ended in the “right result".

He told The Sunday Mirror: “He is working on himself at the minute and getting his confidence back. I have no doubt that whatever he goes into next, he will do great.

“He’s doing really well considering he has moved on from a terrible three years, a horrible three years, and he has come out the other side with the right result. He is getting on with his life and moving forward," Marvin added.

“One thing about us boys, everyone knows how close we are and we give each other support in any situation. We are like family.”

Trigger Warning: This article contains descriptions of rape and sexual assault. 

Actress Kristina Cohen has accused Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick of rape. 

Kristina wrote an extensive post about her alleged experience on Facebook last night. 

Kristina detailed that the assault allegedly happened while she was dating a producer who was friends with Westwick, and claims that the rape occurred at the actor's home three years ago.

'It was this producer who brought me up to Ed’s house where I met Ed for the first time. I wanted to leave when Ed suggested “we should all f*ck”. But the producer didn’t want to make Ed feel awkward by leaving,' she wrote in the post. 

'Ed suggested I nap in the guest bedroom. The producer said we would stay for just another 20 more minutes to smooth everything over, and then we could leave.'

'I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep, I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body.'

'I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*ck me,' she continued. 

'I was paralysed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move.

'He held me down and raped me,' she claimed. 

Kristina also detailed the guilt she felt after the incident, and how she was told by her boyfriend at the time that she didn't want to be known as 'that girl.' 

'The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant,' she claimed. 

'Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career.'

'Social conditioning that everything is always the woman’s fault?'

'That a man’s inability to keep himself off of our bodies is somehow because of us, not him?' 

Kristina felt that she had to speak up and describe what happened to her after the recent outpouring of sexual assault claims in Hollywood. 

'Men like Ed using fame and power to rape and intimidate but then continue through the world collecting accolades.'

'I hope that my stories and the stories of others help to reset and realign the toxic environments and power imbalances that have created these monsters,' she finished her online testimonial. 

Westwick has not yet commented on the alleged assault.

With their exaggerated curves and voluptuous lips, the Kardashian-Jenners are often accused of befriending Hollywood’s beloved plastic surgeons.

But while her entrepreneurial sister eventually admitted to making her famous pout “a little too big”, it seems Kendall Jenner’s journey towards cosmetic enhancement may only be beginning.

On Monday night, the model’s younger sibling uploaded a picture to Instagram in which Kendall’s lips appear far fuller than they have previously.

Fans were quick to pick up on the 21-year-old’s changed appearance and promptly concluded that she must have received lip fillers.

Many of the KUWTK star’s followers expressed disappointment over the alleged alteration and tweeted that they had hoped she would preserve her natural good looks.

 

 

A number of online commentators furthered this theory by suggesting Kendall deleted her Instagram account so she could quietly remove images which would prove her lips have changed.

However, Kylie has since taken the blame for Kendall’s new look by telling her Snapchat followers that she overlined her sister’s lips before sharing the attention grabbing post.

“You guys, Kendall let me overline her lips today with lip liner and everyone thinks she got lip injections,” confessed the cosmetics guru.  “I’m sorry Kendall.”

Kim Kardashian West is reportedly suing an online media outlet for suggesting she lied about her brutal Paris Fashion Week robbery experience.

TMZ has reported that the mother of two has filed a lawsuit against MediaTakeOut.com for three posts about the ordeal which saw $10 million worth of jewellery being stolen from the luxury Parisian apartment she was renting.

One of the site’s posts alleged that the KUWTK star had “staged” the robbery, but Kim’s lawsuit claims the site used random social media users as its sources.

Another story suggested the “French authorities” suspect the 35-year-old had “let the robbers in” to the apartment herself.

According to TMZ, Kim’s legal team previously asked the site to remove the stories, but since they’ve received no response they have decided to take action.

The news comes as Khloe Kardashian revealed to Ellen Degeneres that her sister is not doing well after the ordeal.

While Made in Chelsea stars Stephanie Pratt and Louise Thompson mightn’t exactly be BFFs right now, we did not think their relationship had plummeted to the point of throwing shade on Twitter.

But since Stephanie has now openly accused her reality TV co-star of cheating on her ex-boyfriend Alik Alfus back when they were together, we think the girls’ friendship has most definitely hit rock bottom.

Yesterday Stephanie shared a link on Twitter to a Look magazine article which suggests Steph and Alik had been texting behind Louise’s back.

 

Alongside the link the former Hills star wrote: “Uh no she was shagging her trainer since March.” 

The accusation was quickly followed by another Tweet saying: “Blame anyone you can but take responsibility, right?…Yawn, snooze its boring now” (sic).

The 30-year-old American then retweeted a suggestion that Louise had been “getting some on the side” during the last season of the hit reality show, before adding: “Dont call someone good looking, Millie moved on too fast from her hubby BUT you can cheat on ur bf….Riiiiight” (sic).

 

 

 

The petite brunette ended her long-distance relationship with leather designer Alik back in May and – according to OK! – Louise recently confirmed she is in a relationship with her personal trainer Ryan Libbey. 

Earlier this summer speculation began that the pair were an item after Louise was spotted getting close to the muscular model while holidaying in the French Riviera.

This is the second time this week the MIC star has been publicly called out on her actions.  On Tuesday Charlotte Crosby hit out at Louise after she criticised the size of the Geordie’s lips in an interview with new! magazine
