'Zombified' woman 'begged JLS star Oritse Williams to stop as he raped her in hotel room'

A "ZOMBIFIED" woman told JLS star Oritse Williams to stop having sex with her but "he carried on anyway", a court heard today.

The accuser's friend, who also went back to the hotel, said she had a "panic attack" but when she "came round", her friend told her she had been assaulted.

Williams, 32, whose group JLS were runners-up on The X Factor in 2008, is accused of attacking the 20-year-old woman, who told officers she lay “like a dead body” because she wanted it to stop.

Mr Williams, from Croydon, South London, denies rape.

He is on trial alongside his tour manager, Jamien Nagadhana, 32, from Hounslow, who denies sexual assault and assault by penetration in connection with the same incident in December 2016.

A jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court was told the alleged victim was one of three women who queued up to meet the pop star after a gig at Gorgeous nightclub in the city.

Miranda Moore, QC, for the prosecution, said Mr Williams had given them free drinks after they approached him in the VIP area of the club.

Ms Moore said they spent the night “dancing and mucking about” and taking Snapchat videos.

One woman was put in a taxi home as she felt "very sick" but the two others went back to the hotel with Mr Williams, where he is alleged to have attempted to have sex with the complainant “almost as soon as they had got into” the hotel room.

The court previously heard how the women were described by hotel staff as looking "spaced out and zombified".

The accuser's friend told the court today that "she went blank" and didn't remember anything from the club.

She said her next memory was waking up on the floor of the hotel.

"I was having a really bad panic attack", she told the court.

She said when she "came round", and the paramedics had left, her friend told her she had been assaulted.
She told the court: "She said she had been picked up and put on the bed and she was telling him to leave her alone and stop it and he carried on anyway.

"His friend he was sharing a room with came over to the two of them while she was telling him to stop and was touching her and then she was telling him to stop.

"I started freaking out, I think I was having another panic attack and ran out the room to ask for help."

The alleged victim will continue to give evidence later today.

The trial continues.
