Country singer Jimmie Allen has returned to social media following allegations that he sexually assaulted his former day-to-day manager.
In a recent report by Variety on Thursday (May 11), it was revealed that Jimmie Allen is facing a lawsuit filed by his former manager, referred to as “Jane Doe,” who has accused him of sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment, sex trafficking, and emotional distress. Additionally, the lawsuit also includes Allen’s former record label, Wide Open Music, for allegations of gross negligence and involvement in sex trafficking.
According to Jane Doe, who was a member of Allen’s management team, she claims to have endured rape, sexual harassment, and abuse for a period of 18 months. Disturbingly, she shared explicit details of the assault and abuse she alleges she experienced at the hands of Jimmie Allen.
One particularly harrowing incident occurred while Allen and the woman were in Los Angeles filming an episode of American Idol, where he was a celebrity guest. Following a business dinner after the taping, the woman claims to have woken up in severe pain and bleeding, with no recollection of the previous night’s events. She found Allen lying next to her and he suggested she take a Plan B pill.
“I felt disconnected from my body, filled with panic,” she expressed to Variety. She recollected Allen saying, “I’ve been thinking about this for so long.” She further added, “He restrained me, and at that point, any resistance was futile. I was essentially paralyzed.”
In response to these allegations, Allen released a statement to Variety, asserting that his relationship with the manager was consensual. He expressed deep distress over the unfounded accusations made by someone he considered a close friend, colleague, and confidant. Read it below.
“It is profoundly troubling and hurtful that someone I trusted would make baseless allegations against me. During the nearly two years of our relationship, she never raised any concerns or accused me of any wrongdoing. In fact, she spoke of our relationship and friendship as something she wanted to continue indefinitely. Only after our relationship ended did she engage a lawyer and seek monetary compensation, which raises questions about her motives. I want to emphasize that her accusations are not only false but also incredibly damaging. I have worked tirelessly to build my career, and I am committed to vigorously defending myself against these claims and taking any necessary legal action to protect my reputation.”
Jane Doe’s attorney refuted Allen’s claim that she demanded money, clarifying that her client only sought a resolution to address the victim’s claims.
“Our client did not make any monetary demands. In response, she received a firm refusal and was met with threats that Allen’s team would publicly tarnish her reputation. Faced with no other choice, our client took proactive measures to protect herself by filing the complaint,” Jane Doe’s attorney stated.
Variety also corroborated the claims made by the victim by speaking to her mother and friend, who confirmed that she had confided in them about the alleged abuse. The news outlet additionally reviewed numerous messages exchanged between Jane Doe, her family members, a friend, and Allen, which substantiated the claims against the country singer.
It should be noted that Jane Doe’s lawsuit contains explicit and graphic details that may be distressing to some readers. Therefore, caution is advised when reading the full story.
This disturbing news emerges just days after Jimmie Allen and his wife, Alexis, made the announcement that they are separating while simultaneously expecting a child.
