This is just horrible.
On Thursday, it was revealed that ANOTHER woman has come forward to accuse Kanye West‘s friend and stylist Ian Connor of rape. How awful!
In an interview with DailyMail an 18-year-old, whom the site has named Alyssa in order to protect her anonymity, detailed how the fashion consultant allegedly forced her into a room, pinned her to a mattress, and raped her despite saying no several times. Oh no!
This allegation comes after both Khadiata Diallo and Malika Anderson accused the 23-year-old of sexual assault. As you may know, Miz Diallo claims that she was raped by Connor when she was only 16 and Miz Anderson says that after being assaulted by Ian she contracted gonorrhea.
Regardless, Alyssa’s decided to keep her identity a secret as she’s yet to tell her family what happened. The duo first made contact back in January 2014 online. On meeting the fashionable guru, the Denver native explained:
“He told me to FaceTime him so I did the next day. He asked me when I first heard about him, where I lived and how I should move to New York and this and that. He told me about how he was in the UK with [A$AP] Rocky, signing to the A$AP Mob. That’s all I really remember… My friends and I thought it was funny but it was cool too because he’s a big deal within the fashion industry. Artistically, he has a lot of influence and he worked with all the people that we loved. He himself did work that we loved, so it was like, ‘it’s Ian Connor’.”
Nonetheless, the teen told Ian she was only interested in him platonically since she had a boyfriend and the A-lister’s confidant seemed to be okay with that — at first.
After conversing for some time, the youngster met Ian in person while in Los Angeles to look at colleges. When she got into town, Alyssa reached out to Ian and asked if he knew of any parties. Alyssa added:
“He hit me up saying, ‘I want to see you.’ So I was like, OK ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it just was an issue of ‘where are you, how am I going to find you?’ I made it clear that we need to be around people. I said, ‘you bring your people and I’ll bring my friend with me.’ He was like, ‘no, you know I don’t do crowds’. I said ‘no, I’m going to bring my friend with me or I’m not coming’. I was sure I didn’t want anything to happen.”
The teen and her gal pal had the celebrity stylist and his friends take them to Fredo Santana‘s Hollywood home for a party. Alyssa shared that on the way to the bash, she and Ian talked about music and that the industry vet kept “messing” with her face and touching her nose. How odd!
At the party, Ian asked Alyssa to join him outside for a cigarette and she followed — only to be dragged into a different room. She relayed:
“We were walking down the hallway but at the end, he opens this door and pulls me into this bedroom. The light was off and he just said that when he lived here, this was his bedroom. Then he locked the door. He pulled me into the bathroom and he shut the door and locked it and then he started kissing me. I was pushing him off and saying ‘no Ian, I don’t want this’. He was saying, ‘why not?’ He kept touching me and I kept telling him ‘no, I don’t want this’.”
That’s just atrocious. She continued:
“He was like, ‘I’m not even saying you owe it to me because I’m Ian Connor but it’s because I’ve been f*cking with you for a long time’. I was like, ‘I don’t care, I don’t want it’. I kept making excuses and saying no. Then he just pulled my pants down. The top I was wearing, he didn’t take that off. But he pulled my pants down. I tried to pull them back up but he pulled them down again. He kept trying to kiss me and I was pushing him off. I was yelling at him. I had my phone and I tried to call my friend but he took my phone from me. I was not cooperating so he unlocked the bathroom door and pulled me back into the bedroom. He threw me on the bed. It was just a mattress on the floor. He threw me on the mattress and grabbed hold of my hair. He pushed my head down and then he had his other arm around my body. That’s when he started to rape me. I was screaming and crying.”
Apparently, the music from the party below drowned out Alyssa’s cries and she eventually stopped fighting off Ian. Afterwards, Alyssa said she collected her things, grabbed her friend, and immediately called an Uber.
It’ll certainly be interesting to see if Ian is charged now that SEVERAL women have come forward with similar claims. Stay tuned.
