Blood On The Dance Floor Accused Of Child Sex By Fans, Support Acts And Crew

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 1, 2013

The disproportionately publicised Blood On The Dance Floor are once again making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Incredibly wrong reasons. So, so wrong. This is going to hit you right in your faith for humanity. A Tumblr page called The Truth About Dahvie which contains dozens of submissions from self-described ex-fans of the duo, support acts and crew members has been published, all of which recall past experiences with BOTDF member Dahvie Vanity and many of which relate to under-age sexual activity or some other form of sexual harassment from the ‘musician’.

There are several tweets from a long-time cohort of the pair, DJ and model Jeffree Star, who denounced any connection with Vanity, stating that “being on tour with that child fucker has made me see the truth”. Other people who have worked with BOTDF have also spoken out in support of the bevy of fans who are relating some seriously fucked-up experiences on the page. Perhaps most shockingly, though, are the scanned police documents relating to the assault of an 11-year-old girl, who reportedly dropped her case on account of cyberbullying from other fans. We’re not going to go too much more into it – check out the page for yourself.

Dahvie is, of course, denying it all, and, as always, there are two sides to every story. His excuse that “people start to make things up, bad things, out of anger and spite” might not hold too much water in this situation, though, especially when the vast majority of the people making the accusations were fans, collaborators, friends or employees before turning their back on him. It hasn’t taken long for the page to garner a lot of attention, with the amount of posts seeming to grow by the hour. As this self-appointed Internet jury is one of questionable integrity, we can’t assume any of the below is fact, but it’s not looking good for old mate Dahvie Vanity.
