William Bensussen A.K.A. The Gaslamp Killer’s career has flipped on its head last month following allegations of sexual assault by Twitter user named Chelsea Tardos that allegedly took place back in 2013. The incident, which allegedly happened four years ago, involved the two and Chelsea’s friend RaeAn Medina; specifically, she claims the producer drugged the two and had non-consensual sex. Following these allegations, he has been dropped from his residency with Low End Theory, with his Australian tour completely canceled.
Bensussen recently filed a lawsuit against Tardos, Medina, and the former’s boyfriend for $5 million on grounds of defamation. In docs, obtained by TMZ, GLK calls BS on Chelsea’s allegation. However, he admits having a consensual 3-way with the women. He says there’s a witness who saw him buy drinks for the women without tampering — and also says they propositioned him … not the other way around. You can read the full lawsuit via TMZ.
