Curtis Lepore, who was once the lead singer of underground hardcore outfit GhostxShip, has been accused of raping his ex-girlfriend.
TMZ, one of the first sites to break the story, reports that Jessi Smiles was raped while she was sleeping after Lepore offered to look after her while she recovered from a concussion that she suffered while filming a video for Vine.
He was arrested back in October and released on $100,000 bail, but somehow no media outlets picked up on the story until Tuesday’s court hearing where Lepore pled No Guilty, which is surprising as both are big internet celebrities thanks to their Vine videos.
The day after the alleged incident, she Tweeted: “Be careful of who you trust. Always be cautious for your safety. Be strong and don’t let your guard down…”
