Jimmie Allen’s former manager sues him for alleged s3xual assault, battery, false imprisonment, s3x trafficking, and mental distress.
According to court documents obtained by The Times, the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous because she still works in the music industry, claims that Allen harassed and s3xually attacked her for a year and a half while she was a staff member of Allen’s management company, Wide Open Music.
BBR Music Group, Allen’s label, suspended the recording artist immediately after the allegations surfaced, stating, “In light of today’s allegations against Jimmie Allen, BBR Music Group has decided to suspend all activity with him, effective immediately.”
The Country Music Association removed Allen from the CMAFest concert in Nashville, where he was scheduled to perform on June 11, after the incident became public knowledge. The concert also featured country music icons Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw.
In a lawsuit filed on Thursday in a federal court in Tennessee by “Jane Doe,” Allen’s former manager, she alleges that she woke up naked in her hotel room in March 2021 with vaginal bleeding and pain but no recollection of the previous evening.
She claimed that Allen had taken her virginity against her will while lying next to her and instructing her to swallow a Plan.
Jane Doe also alleges that the abuse intensified after the hotel stay, with Allen sexually abusing her at stoplights, in green rooms, on flights, and in other locations where she was forced to be present. She also claims that Allen forcibly shoved his hands down her pants in public.
She also said that Allen “raped her in private while choking her” and that he filmed “multiple sexual encounters in order to blackmail her to stay silent.”
Allen denied any wrongdoing in a statement to The Times and claimed that their relationship was consensual.
Jane Doe’s attorney told Variety that a payout was never requested, saying, “The only ask we made of Allen and his legal counsel was to meet to discuss Allen’s behavior and resolution of our client’s claims. At no time did our client make a monetary demand.”
