Amy partner 'raped sleeping woman'

Reg Traviss denies two counts of rape

The boyfriend of the late singer Amy Winehouse allegedly raped a woman while she was asleep, a court has heard.

Reg Traviss, 35, attacked the woman after she was so drunk she could not stand, it was claimed.

The film director, who was Amy's boyfriend when she died at her home in Camden, north London, in July last year, faces two counts of rape at Southwark Crown Court. He denies the charges.

Traviss and the woman, a friend, had been drinking at three bars in the capital on December 30 last year before going to his home on Marylebone High Street.

There she alleges she twice fell asleep to wake up with him raping her.

If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
