Some rather shocking news now…
Reg Traviss, the boyfriend of the late Amy Winehouse, has been charged with two counts of rape and will appear before magistrates next month.
The film director was arrested by the Metropolitan police on 5 April in relation to charges filed on 18 January.
“I have authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Reginald Traviss with two counts of rape,” Rebecca Mundy, a lawyer with the Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed. “The alleged offences took place between 29 December 2011 and 1 January 2012.”
Reg will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 17 July.
The 35-year-old film maker dated Amy Winehouse for more than year before her tragic death at her Camden home last July. The couple had been planning to get married.
Reg has spoken in the past of coming to terms with Amy’s death, telling the Sunday Times, “What felt surreal was not the cameras and the craziness but losing somebody, just like that.
“You might say we were halfway through a conversation in our life together and then, suddenly, she disappeared.”
