Traviss denies rape accusations

Reg Traviss has denied raping a woman on New Year's Eve

The boyfriend of late singer Amy Winehouse has denied raping a woman on New Year's Eve.

Reg Traviss, 35, appeared at Southwark Crown Court and entered not guilty pleas to two counts of rape on December 31 last year.

The woman alleges that she got drunk on a night out and the next thing she remembers is Traviss having sex with her, the court heard.

Traviss, of Devonshire Street, Marylebone, central London, was Winehouse's boyfriend when she died at her home in Camden, north London last July.

Wearing a grey suit, white shirt and red tie, he was told that he will face a three-day trial on December 10.

He was released on bail until that date.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. 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
