Amy Winehouse's ex accused of raping friend while she slept

ALLEGATIONS: Amy Winehouse's ex Reg Traviss

AMY WINEHOUSE’S ex boyfriend, Reg Traviss, allegedly raped his friend twice while she was asleep following a drunken night out.

The woman said she agreed to out with the 35-year-old film-director to make him feel better because he was feeling “shattered and quite distressed” over the death of the troubled singer, who died from alcohol poisoning last July, reports The Metro.

She told Southwark crown court: "I did not expect it to happen. I did not want to have sex with him. I don’t fancy him and I would not have said yes if I was sober.’ After the two alleged rapes she fell asleep until the next afternoon, when Traviss walked her to a nearby Tube station.”

During the proposed attack he reportedly told her: “I always wanted to do this to you.”

The woman, who admitted that she was so drunk she was unable to stand following a bar crawl, said she delayed going to the police for three weeks after the December 30 incident because she was worried about media coverage of the case.

After falling asleep she claimed she awoke twice to find her friend of five years sexually assaulting her at his home in Marylebone, London.

The woman said she remained in his bed after the first assault because he “promised not to touch her again”.

The case continues.
