Following accusations by a woman who claimed she was sexually assaulted by him at a party last year in June, new reports state that Migos rapper Takeoff will not be facing any charges.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute the case due to insufficient evidence, a spokesperson for the office said.
Takeoff was sued last year by a woman, identified as Jane Doe, who claims that Takeoff raped her at a house party on June 23. In addition to sexual battery, false imprisonment, and assault, the woman is also suing the rapper for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
After the suit was filed, Takeoff’s lawyer Drew Findling called the allegations “patently and provably false.” Pitchfork has reached to representatives for Takeoff, as well as Drew Findling.
Neama Rahmani, who is representing Jane Doe in the civil suit, told SPIN last year, “We hope that by initiating civil proceedings, witnesses will come forward, more evidence will be discovered, and law enforcement will give this serious case the attention it deserves.”
Reached today by Pitchfork, Rahmani shared the following statement: “Our client is disappointed in the decision of the Los Angeles County District Attorney, who has once again shown he is soft on crime and cares more about the rights of criminal defendants than victims of sexual assault. She looks forward to receiving the justice she deserves in her civil case.”
While there are no criminal charges against Takeoff regarding the case anymore, he still facing a civil lawsuit against the woman involved.
