The Gaslamp Killer Is Suing Two Women Over Rape Allegations

As previously reported, Chelsea Tadros recently posted on Twitter saying that she and a friend had been drugged and raped by Bensussen after they met at a party in 2013. She said that Benussen then drugged them, raped them, and dropped them off back in front of the hotel.

Bensussen filed a defamation lawsuit against a woman named Chelsea, her friend RaeAn, and Chelsea's boyfriend for $5 million in damages. He denies the allegations but claims to have had consensual sex with the two women.

The unveiling of this story seems to come as another outcome of the Weinstein effect, which has several women who have been abused by men in power (especially in the entertainment industry) finding the courage to speak up. He says there's a witness who saw him buy drinks for the women without tampering - and also says they propositioned him. not the other way around.


The third defendant is reportedly named on the lawsuit because he has continued to assert Tadros's claims online.

In Bensussen's complaint, obtained by Pitchfork, the producer calls Chelsea's original statement "malicious and fabricated" and says that his sexual encounter with the two women was "consensual".
