“The Voice” singer indicted for “rape” and “sexual assault”

| |

A former singer of the show The Voice was indicted last February for “rape” and “sexual assault” against three women.

Pascal O., known as Spleen, known for his participation in the musical reality show The Voice, was indicted in February for “rape” and “sexual assault”, AFP learned Wednesday from a judicial source, confirming information from the magazine Neon.

Spleen was indicted for “rape” and “moral harassment” against two women as well as “sexual assault” against a third, according to this source. Left free under judicial control, he is also indicted for “capturing or transmitting images of a sexual nature without consent” of these three women and a fourth complainant, said this source.

Captures of photos and videos without consent

Regarding facts denounced by a fifth woman, he had already been referred to the Paris Criminal Court, but the hearing which was to be held at the beginning of the year was postponed to be attached to the file of instruction, according to sources familiar with the matter.

In a long investigation, Neon revealed in November the many accusations against the singer.

“What links all these stories is the capture of photos and videos without the consent of people,” said a source familiar with the matter.

#MusicToo, a hashtag for free speech

Several women indeed accuse Spleen of having attracted them to his home before forcing them to take photos or videos before, according to some of them, sexually assaulting them or even raping them.

“We dispute the facts,” the singer’s lawyer told AFP.

In mid-March, Yohann Malory, famous lyricist of singers such as Johnny Hallyday, Matt Pokora or Louane, was indicted in Paris for rape and sexual assault on four women, which he disputes.

Regarding Spleen like Yohann Malory, testimonies against them had emerged on social networks under the keyword #MusicToo, created in the wake of the #MeToo movement to denounce sexual violence in the music industry.
