Some serious accusations are being slung towards Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke. A Utah woman alleges that Radke and some associates sexually assaulted her after the band's show on June 3rd at the Murray Theater in Murray, UT. She took to Facebook to blast Radke and his associates:
“I’ve been a victim of sexual assault too many times. Once is too many. Four times is too many for any person. Please pray for me”
“Broken nose (previous to assault) bruises all over my body and a three inch contusion on my jaw and torn throat ligaments from fighting back. Thanks Ashley-Jade Thewlis & Levi Rounds for taking care of me and putting that monster on blast.”
“The situation has blown up on social media. He even tweeted about me being a dumbass.
75% is fangirls saying I should kill myself and 25% are people saying he can never come back to Utah.
As if having a rape kit and a severe contusion on my jaw weren’t enough.”
ThePRP has been on top of the story and notes a friend of hers spoke publicly on the incident:
“A pile of literal human garbage named Ronnie Radke gang raped someone really important to me last night (because that’s how real men treat women, with their bodyguard as backup) and tossed her out onto the curb. He’s some has been, talentless musician that was playing the Murray Theater last night. If any of my friends book him, defend him, or even mention his name around me, we aren’t friends anymore. I hope he dies a slow painful death surrounded by people cheering on his suffering, Christ like, minus the martyrdom.
I haven’t cried this much in over a year, and nothing even happened to me. The person it happened to is one of the strongest individuals I’ve ever met in my life. She’s going to be ok. Just the fact that someone can do this to another person makes me sick and sad for our whole race. Fuck him, his garbage music and everything he stands for.
Please no shitty jokes. This isn’t an open mic forum. Just me venting online instead of kicking a fucking wall.”
A screenshot has surfaced on the alleged victim's page of a witness who claims to have seen her being shoved out of the car. The witness alleges he had a brief altercation with Radke before cops arrived. We are currently unaware of any charges being pressed, and Radke has yet to publicly comment on the matter, so we should point out that this is only one side of the argument.
However, things don't look good for Radke, who has a criminal record with charges of domestic battery, endangering fans and spending over two years in jail for his involvement in a fatal shooting.
Update: Ronnie Radke has issued the following statement to AltPress:
“The Internet is a wonderful place because everyone has a voice. It’s also an awful place for the same reason. This isn’t the first time people have taken it upon themselves to spread ugly, unsubstantiated claims about myself and my friends. No one from our band or crew were arrested in Utah. After our show in Salt Lake City, we were concerned for someone who appeared to be under the influence and called 911. I personally spoke with law enforcement. I certainly was never under arrest or charged with any crime.”
AltPress reports they reached out to Salt Lake City Sheriff’s Department and there was no record of Radke being held by them. Calls to the Murray City Police Department were not returned at press time.
We'll keep you posted with any further developments.
