Woman Posts Disturbing Account of Allegedly Being Drugged and Raped by Karl Kani

The model blew up his spot on IG.

Published March 22, 2017

Designer Karl Kani has allegedly found himself in the middle of a major scandal as a woman has come forward exposing him for allegedly raping and drugging her.

The young model said in a series of lengthy Instagram posts that she decided to go public with her claims via social media because the justice system failed her.

In the posts, she claimed she has been in and out of court with Kani since April 2016, but District Attorney Teresa De Castro decided earlier this week to close her case completely, claiming there was not enough evidence to prove she was raped.

The model said she first met Kani for a fitting and was asked to meet him on a later occasion at a restaurant and it was here, she claims, things went downhill. She alleges that all she remembers after that was being in his home, naked, on his bed, with no prior knowledge of how she got there.

Read her explanation, below:

RAPIST: Karl Kani @karlkani EVERYONE PLEASE REPOST‼️ First & foremost, saying this is not easy. But if this is going to bring me justice one day then so be it. The man you see in this picture raped me. I was drugged and raped with no recollection of what happened the night of. Only bits and pieces. I have been in an ongoing case since 4/18/2016. I was told today 3/21/17 by the district attorney (Teresa De Castro) that my case is now CLOSED and not going to trial. Why? B/c there was not enough evidence to prove that I was unconscious at the time. My detective on this case (Detective Fairchild) told me she cannot do anything else to pursue this b/c of what the DA said. HIS DNA WAS FOUND ON MY BODY. This man admitted to the police that we had "consensual sex" which is completely false. And since he's done this before, he knows how & what to say & do. If he would have told police that we did nothing, my case would still be open b/c of the evidence provided. But since this pig simply said we had mutual sex, my case is closed & thrown w/ the rest of the cases that no one cares to look into b/c there are "bigger" things in the world happening. I was told this is a he said/ she said scenario. I was told by the DA that my case is closed unless this happens to someone else. THE FUCK!?! I've had so many people looking up to me & proud of how far I've come w/ pursuing my dream. Now I have everyone asking me where have I been. I closed out. I wasn't me. I stopped modeling. I stopped trusting. I put my life on hold because I didn't know how to deal with something I've never had to deal with before in my life. I didn't feel sorry for myself. I really didn't know how to cope in that moment of "Why? How? What happened to me?" I had a professional meeting (fitting) with Karl Kani & his team & I also brought someone with me. The next time he asked to meet at a restaurant & next thing I know, I wake up in this man's bed naked right next to him with no memory of how I got there, how I got naked, how I got in his bed, or how the f**k I even got into his home! Half of my toenail was gone with dry blood on me. I had scrapes on my legs. I was paranoid & confused..continuing in comments

She continued, adding that once she regained consciousness, she noticed that half of her toe nail was missing and there were scrapes on her legs.

Though Kani's DNA was found on her person after a rape kit test was conducted, she says the conclusion of inadequate evidence was reached because he claimed their sexual experience was completely mutual.

She went on to explain how helpless she felt once learning of this and added that "this isn't over."

She went as far as exposing the designer's number in an Instagram post after he deleted his account following her scathing posts about the allegations.
