JLS star’s rape accuser claims she ‘lay like a dead body’ during alleged incident

Oritsé Williams is standing trial this week


The woman who has accused Oritsé Williams of rape has claimed that she “lay like a dead body” during the alleged incident.

The 32-year-old, who rose to fame as part of the band JLS on The X Factor, is standing trial this week on a charge of raping a woman at a hotel in Wolverhampton back in December 2016.

According to The Sun, a recording from the woman’s police interview was played in court on Wednesday.

In the recording, the woman told police: “In the blink of an eye my pants were off. The whole time I was telling him to get off me, ‘f**k off’, but he was not having it.”

“He was making gross remarks about my body. I was crying, I could not comprehend it any more. It was horrible, not feeling like you have any self control in your body.

“It was really bad. I lay like a dead body for a bit. I just wanted it to be over.”

“I was quite scared but not terrified. I felt more pathetic and weak. It kills your confidence. It kills everything. I felt worthless,” the woman added.

Oritsé has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him, and has professed his innocence ever since he was arrested.
