Riff Raff Denies Sexual Assault Allegations

Riff Raff is denying claims made by two women.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Riff Raff has denied the sexual assault allegations made against him.

The hip-hop star's tour of Australia and New Zealand was canceled earlier this month after an Australian woman named Eliza Stafford accused him on Facebook of drugging and sexually assaulting her backstage at a concert in 2013, when she was 19.

Shortly after, another alleged victim came forward. Kelsey Doucette, 20, told website Jezebel that she was assaulted at a concert in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2015, when she was 17.

Riff Raff, real name Horst Christian Simco, has now denied ever engaging in such behavior in a video posted to Instagram.

"Never once have I forced a girl to have sex. Never once have I forced a girl to do any type of drugs. I don't want to have a girl drunk and sleepy," he said. "Never once have I ever had to drag a girl to the car... never once have I ever had to drag a girl to a hotel, up flights of steps, to have sex with a dead starfish in my room. That is not happening. Point blank, period. I'll say this multiple times."

In the caption, he claims the footage, in which he appears alongside an entertainment attorney and film director Sarah B. Downey, is a clip from a 13-minute film titled "Trial By Media" which will be about "how false allegations are the new easy way for people to lie and get their name in the media ... at the expense of actual artists, athletes & high-profile easy target party moguls."

"Don't ever be afraid to stand up for yourself against lies," he added.
