Snoop Dogg Calls Sexual Assault Allegations ‘Simply Meritless’
After allegations of sexual assault were leveled at him last week for an incident that took place almost 10 years ago, Snoop Dogg has issued a statement to the lawsuit filed against him.
According to Reuters, a spokesperson for the rapper, who just came off a halftime performance at last weekend’s Super Bowl responded that the entertainer “has never had any sexual encounter” with the accuser and the allegations were “simply meritless.”
Last week, the plaintiff made a final attempt to settle the issue in private mediation, but the dialogue was “unsuccessful.”
The accuser’s attorney, Matt Finkelberg, said the woman “refuses to be silenced and intimidated any longer.”
The Hill reported that the woman “worked as a professional dancer, model, actress, host, and a spokesmodel for Muse Ink Festival, Comedy Central, and CNN in the lawsuit.” Snoop and Juan also employed her as a dancer for concerts.
The woman claimed she asked Don MagicJuan to take her home after her friend left the studio, but he brought her back to his house and convinced her to go with him to Snoop’s studio despite her not wanting to. She stated that she did not feel well, and after getting to the studio, she went to the bathroom. She then says Snoop came in the bathroom where he told her to place his genitals in her mouth and later masturbated on her before leaving the bathroom.
