Grammy-nominated country star Jimmie Allen is facing a major backlash and legal troubles following sexual assault and battery allegations made against him. The singer’s former manager, identified as Jane Doe, has filed a lawsuit accusing Allen of rape, sexual assault, and harassment over the course of 18 months.
The lawsuit alleges that Allen manipulated and groomed the woman into an abusive sexual relationship while she worked on his management team. Allen has admitted to having a sexual relationship with the woman but claims it was consensual. He denies all allegations and calls them false and damaging.
Allen’s agency, UTA, has suspended its representation of him, and his management company, The Familie, has suspended all management activities. Additionally, Allen has been dropped by his record label, BBR Music Group, and has been removed from the lineup of CMA Fest and as the commencement speaker for Delaware State University’s graduation. The allegations have caused a significant impact on Allen’s career, with his publicist also terminating their business relationship.
Allen’s personal life has also been making headlines, as he recently announced his separation from his wife, Alexis, and the couple’s expectation of their third child together. The lawsuit alleges that Allen raped the woman during a work trip to Los Angeles and sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions. The woman claims that Allen’s management team was aware of his behavior but did nothing to prevent it. Allen’s attorney has disputed the allegations and questioned the woman’s motives, claiming that she only made the accusations after their relationship ended and asked for money.
The woman’s attorney has denied the financial request and stated that their client had no choice but to file the lawsuit to protect herself. Jimmie Allen, known for his chart-topping hits and accolades in the country music industry, has achieved significant success in his career. However, these allegations have had a severe impact on his professional life, with multiple industry entities severing ties with him. As the legal proceedings continue, Allen will face the challenge of defending his reputation and addressing the serious allegations made against him.
