Sean Kingston Sued For Alleged Gang Rape
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.30.2013
TMZ reports that Sean Kingston and others are being sued for gang-raping a drunk teenager in his hotel room in 2010. 22-year-old Carissa Capeloto said that she was forced to have sex with Kingston, his bodyguard and a member of his band at a Seattle hotel in July of that year. This was after she smoked marijuana and consumed between seven and ten shots of vodka.
She is suing all three men. She said she was invited to his hotel room for a meet-and-greet after a Justin Bieber concert, where Kingston also performed. When she arrived, Kingston was naked on his bed. She said the bodyguard picked her up and put her on top of Kingston, and all three of the men raped her while she was "obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent."
She said her friend later entered the room and saved her. The police were called and she was treated at the hospital for physical injuries consistent with rape.
Capeloto says that her life has been ruined, as she suffers from insomnia, mood swings and panic attacks. She wants $5 million minimum. Criminal charges against Kingston were dropped in 2010 after police ruled that she wasn't credible enough for a legitimate case. Kingston has filed legal documents claiming the sex was consensual. A trial will take place in November.
