Riff Raff's Australian Tour Cancelled Following Rape Allegation
Published Jun 01, 2018Riff Raff's upcoming Australia and New Zealand tour has been cancelled in the wake of a rape accusation.
A woman named Eliza Stafford alleges that Riff Raff drugged and raped her in 2013, when she was 19 years old.
She detailed the incident in a public Facebook post, saying that she was offered a shot of vodka from the rapper, but was told after drinking it that it was codeine. She says that Riff Raff and his support act started laughing, and she doesn't remember anything beyond that point
Stafford claims she was coerced into a car with Riff Raff and his support act (according to other people's accounts), and when she woke up, Riff Raff "was pulling out of me and getting in to the shower."
Stafford then urged fans of the rapper not to attend his upcoming show in Australia.

In light of the allegations, Riff Raff's upcoming tour dates have now been cancelled.
Australian booking agency Audiopaxx announced the decision, saying that the company "takes these matters seriously and does not condone any of this behaviour."
