The Gaslamp Killer Files Defamation Suit Against Rape Accusers

The Gaslamp Killer Files Defamation Suit Against Rape Accusers
Last month, the Gaslamp Killer was met with some serious allegations when Twitter user @chelseaelaynne accused him of raping her and friend RaeAn on July 5, 2013. The artist born William Benjamin Bensussen denied the allegations in a statement, and now he's getting his lawyers involved.

According to TMZ, Bensussen has filed a defamation lawsuit against Chelsea, RaeAn and one of the women's boyfriends. The musician claims that he has a witness who can confirm that he bought drinks for the women without any tampering. Further, Bensussen claims that they had a consensual threesome.

Bensussen is suing for defamation, seeking a reported $5 million USD. When the story first broke, he had a number of Gaslamp Killer gigs cancelled.
