Published Sep 26, 2017Two members of the Weeknd's touring crew are being investigated after claims that they raped a concertgoer following the singer's performance in Columbus, OH, last week.
According to TMZ, a police report was filed the following day by the victim, who claims the two men used "hands, feet, and teeth" as "weapons" in the assault backstage at the concert on September 19 at Schottenstein Center. Further, sources say that the assault may have been filmed.
The two men were reportedly not members of the Weeknd's inner circle, but hired hands for that specific show. In a joint statement statement, Live Nation and the Weeknd's tour manager said that the men have since been fired.
"Upon learning of the accusations that two members of our tour staff are facing, we immediately terminated their employment," the statement to TMZ reads. "We are working with the authorities to ensure they have access to any information or assistance they may need."
