Two temporary crew members on tour with The Weeknd are under criminal investigation after a woman claimed she was raped backstage following the singer’s show, reports TMZ.
Police sources say the woman filed a report with the Ohio State University police station early Wednesday morning, claiming she was raped following The Weeknd’s show at the Schottenstein Center.
The Weeknd was not in the building when the alleged crime occurred, according to the tour manager and Live Nation.
Sources tell TMZ that the woman was in a backstage area with two crew members, and one of the suspects may have filmed the attack.
Also, employees hired for the tour can vary from city to city, and the two suspects are not a part of The Weeknd’s inner circle.
According to the police report, cops believe everyone was drunk during the alleged rape. The report says “hands, feet and teeth” were the “weapons” used in the sexual assault.
“Upon learning of the accusations that two members of our tour staff are facing, we immediately terminated their employment. We are working with the authorities to ensure they have access to any information or assistance they may need,” the tour manager told TMZ.
The incident is reportedly under investigation and no arrests have been made.
