Second Woman Accuses Riff Raff Of Sexual Misconduct

UPDATE: Riff Raff Denies Rape & Sexual Misconduct Allegations In New Video

CONTENT WARNING: The following article discusses alleged sexual misconduct.

ORIGINAL STORY: A second woman has accused Riff Raff of sexual misconduct, after the rapper’s Australian tour was cancelled following a rape allegation.

20-year-old Kelsey Doucette has alleged that Riff Raff (real name Horst Christian Simco) tried to coerce her into sex in Milwaukee during the 2015 Warped Tour, when she was 17 years of age.

Taking to Facebook after Melbourne woman Eliza Stafford accused Riff Raff of raping her in 2013, Doucette shared a screenshot of a message she sent to Stafford.

In the message, Doucette said she and some of her friends met Riff Raff during a meet-and-greet at Warped Tour. She said Riff Riff asked if she was single, to which she replied “yeah, why?”, and was told she should come hang out in his tour bus.

Doucette said she and her friends (a mix of males and females) were later brought to Riff Raff’s tour bus by his manager, but her male friends weren’t allowed on the bus.

Doucette said that while she was on the bus, Riff Raff “forcefully” grabbed her arm and pulled her onto his bed, before touching her legs, stomach and breast and trying to put his hand down her pants.

Doucette said Riff Raff even told her, “Come one, I’ll even let you have my baby,” before she left the bus.

She later tweeted about the experience:

“I am embarrassed that this has happened and I am so sorry that this has happened to so many other young females, but I don’t want it to keep happening,” Doucette told her Facebook followers.

Since his Australian tour was cancelled, Riff Raff has posted a screenshot of a text message to his Instagram account, which he has since deleted:
