Reg Traviss — former boyfriend of the late, great Amy Winehouse — was arrested in England last month and local police have now charged him with two counts of rape.
"I have authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Reginald Traviss with two counts of rape…. The alleged offences took place between 29 December 2011 and 1 January 2012."
Late last year we reported Amy and the 35 year-old fledgling filmmaker were in the early stages of wedding planning before she tragically died of alcohol poisoning — this was just months before the crimes were committed.
It's crazy how much a person's life can change in the span of a year!
Rape is a most heinous crime, but Reg will have a chance to defend himself in court next month. We're interested to hear what he has to say for himself.
