A woman by name Teana Louis says the 51-year-old American rapper and record producer, Too Short sexually assaulted her numerous times while they were working together in 2016, in a lawsuit she filed in Los Angeles on Friday.
The woman says they began working together on his album in December of 2015. At that time, she said the rapper started making unwanted advances toward her.
In June of 2016, she alleges that he forced her onto a bed, ripped the clothing off her body and forced oral sex on her in a downtown Los Angeles hotel room.
She says that more assaults followed in hotel rooms or the recording studio. She recounts an alleged incident when Too Short allegedly pinned her body down and had vaginal intercourse with her, leading her to bleed.
According to the Jasmine Brand, she’s accusing him of sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, gender discrimination and false imprisonment.
Meanwhile, Too Short whose real name is Todd Short has denied the allegation, describing the claims as an extortion attempt.
He told TMZ that the furthest they ever went sexually was foreplay, not intercourse, and certainly not sodomy as she claims.
Short is also planning to countersue to squash the claims.
