British DJ and presenter, Dj Tim Westwood, has been accused by seven women of engaging in inappropriate sexual behavior.
According to the Guardian, the women claim Tim exploited them by abusing his status as a well-known DJ in the music industry.
According to The Guardian, three of the seven women have accused the DJ of inappropriate sexual behavior.
The other four claim that the DJ grabbed them at events.
The Guardian and the BBC conducted a combined investigation into the DJ, which resulted in these disclosures.
Tim has been accused of wrongdoing since 1992, with the most recent being in 2017.
One of the women said; “Someone taking advantage of my naivety and lack of confidence isn’t something that I should have to carry with shame.”
The seven women who spoke to the BBC are all black
The women tell their stories in a BBC Three documentary, Tim Westwood: Abuse of Power, which airs on BBC Three at 21:00 on Tuesday.
Two of the ladies agreed to meet the DJ in London to discuss music, according to two of the women who were hoping to establish a career in the sector. They accuse the DJ of driving them to a flat and forcing unwelcome and unplanned sex on them. At the moment, one was 19 years old and the other was 53 years old.
Another woman, who was a member of an R&B group at the time, claimed she met Tim when she was 17 and he was in his mid-thirties. After consenting to meet with the DJ, she claims she was subjected to unwanted oral sex.
The ladies who accused him of groping alleged he touched their bottoms or breasts while posing for photos with him at several occasions where he performed.
To protect the women’s identity, the BBC and the Guardian changed their names. According to reports in the media, the women are strangers. According to the BBC and the Guardian, some of them still work in the music industry and are afraid of repercussions.
For a long time, allegations regarding Westwood’s behavior toward young black women have been circulating on social media. In a statement to the Mail Online in 2020, Westwood slammed the “fabricated charges,” saying they were baseless and without merit.
Following these investigations, there have been extensive allegations leveled against the DJ, which he refutes.
