Die Antwoord singer Ninja has landed on the wrong side of the law after Australian musician, Zheani Sparkes, opened a case of sexual assault against him
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that Zheani laid the charge in Queensland.
The publication states that Zheani claims that the incident occurred in SA six years ago.
Zheani told the paper that they had initially connected online, but that things quickly progressed.
The singer claimed that, after months of communicating via email, Ninja convinced her to travel to SA and that when she got here he allegedly wanted to have sex with her.
She said she did not want to have sex with him, but alleged that Ninja forced himself onto her and allegedly choked her while doing so.
“I was just in shock. I wouldn’t discuss it. I might be young, naive, dumb, but I knew what had just happened but I didn’t know how to address it and I didn’t feel safe to address it,” she said.
In March this year, Zheani released a diss track speaking out about the alleged sexual assault for the first time
Yolandi Vi$$er who shares a daughter with Ninja and forms the other half of Die Antwoord denied the allegations on Instagram at the time.
“This was 5 or 6 years ago and now she comes creeping out the woodwork, with this mental story she’s made up in her head to try launch a music career. This is a typical case of Clout Chasing,” she wrote in an Instagram post that has since been deleted.
Ninja has apparently denied the allegations with his publicist telling the publication that it was unbelievable that the media would spend time on “these wild and unsubstantiated stories from people who have an obvious agenda” against him.
