According to The Blast, Bronx-bred rapper French Montana has been sued for sexual battery. The woman anonymously filed a lawsuit under the pseudonym Jane Doe against French, his employee, Mansour Bennouna, and his Coke Boy Records label, the report states.
In the lawsuit, French and Bennouna are reportedly being accused of assault and battery, sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent hiring, supervision and retention, and negligence. The woman is seeking unspecified damages for “extreme emotional distress, anxiety, flashbacks and depression” she has suffered as a result.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the woman states that French Montana invited her back to his home after they met at a recording studio on March 28, 2018. Once they got there, the woman alleges French and Bennouna both asked her to take a shot at around 6 a.m. She claims she blacked out shortly after and was rendered incapacitated. This is when she says several men “came in and out of the bedroom” and sexually assaulted her. The report states that she alleges French was one of those men.
The Blast adds that around 1:30 p.m., Doe says she “regained consciousness,” and awoke to find Bennouna “spooning” her. She also said that she “felt a pain in her pelvis, lower back and vagina,” and left the house in distress. Upon leaving French’s home, the woman had a rape kit adminstered at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center. The investigation reportedly showed the presence of semen. She then reported the incident to police and accused the Bronx rapper of sexually assaulting her.
The woman claims she’s been forced to put her modeling and acting aspirations behind her because of the incident.
At the time of this reporting, French Montana nor his team have publicly responded to the allegations being levied against him.
