JLS star Oritsé Williams has been accused of raping and sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman in a hotel woman earlier this month.

Oritsé, who shot to fame when JLS appeared on The X Factor back in 2008, has been arrested and questioned by police over the incident.

The Sun reports that Oritsé met the woman at Gorgeous nightclub in Wolverhampton on December 2nd, where he was promoting his remixed 2015 album, ‘Waterline’.

The alleged victim and a friend were reportedly invited back to Oritsé’s hotel room to drink with him and another pal, however, when they left to get a taxi home she realised that she had left her handbag in the room and went back to retrieve it.

The woman claims that this is when the rape took place.

A police spokeswoman told the paper: “West Midlands Police were called to a Wolverhampton hotel at 7.45am on Friday December 2 after an allegation of rape and sexual assault was made by a 20-year-old woman.

“A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of rape and a 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.

“Both men have been bailed until February, pending further enquiries.

Oritsé’s reps have not commented on the matter, nor have any of Oritsé’s bandmates – Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Aston Merrygold.
