Rex Orange County has been charged with six counts of sexual assault by a woman in London, according to new reports from The Sun. The 24-year-old musician, born Alexander James O’Connor, is accused of assaulting the woman between June 1 and 2. The singer-songwriter allegedly assaulted the woman twice in London’s West End, once in a taxi, and three times at his home in Notting Hill.
O’Connor appeared at Southwark Crown Court in London on Monday (10 October), where he pleaded not guilty to all charges. A provisional trial date has been set in court for January 3.
“Alex is shocked by the allegations, which he denies, and looks forward to clearing his name in court,” a representative for Rex Orange County said in a press statement. “He is unable to make any further comment because of the ongoing proceedings.”
