TMZ reports that Sean Kingston concert scheduled at a university in Canada was canceled in the wake of the gang rape allegations against him.
Kingston was set to perform at the University of Western Ontario on September 7 for the school's orientation week. The school canceled the event on Friday, saying, "Having Mr. Kingston perform could cloud the values surrounding O-Week," adding that the school has "zero tolerance for sexual assault."
Kingston recently settled a lawsuit with a 22-year-old woman who claimed that Kingston, his bodyguard, and a member of his band forced her to have sex with them in 2010 inside of Kingston's hotel room. Kingston said the sex was consensual. Prosecutors rejected the criminal case because they doubted the alleged victim's credibility.
