Who is DJ Tim Westwood ?

The young women say DJ Tim Westwood pressured them into unwanted s*x and groped their butts and breasts while taking advantage of his powerful position in the rap world.

Three women have accused the 64-year-old of initiating unwanted s*x, while four others allege he groped them at events, The Guardian and BBC report.

The first alleged incident is said to have taken place in 1992, while the most recent occurred in 2017.

Three women, ages 17, 19 and 20 at the time they met Westwood, describe a pattern of alleged “opportunistic and predatory s*xual behavior” after agreeing to meet with him.

Two of them, who had aspirations to work in the music industry, claim they agreed to meet Westwood in London to discuss music, before he “initiated unwanted and unexpected s*x” that left them feeling “completely powerless” and ” scared.”

Four other women say Westwood groped them while posing for a photo with him after his nightclub performances.

The DJ, who is not married, has strongly denied all the claims. A spokesperson for the DJ told MailOnline: ‘Tim Westwood strongly denies all allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

Career

“In a career that has spanned 40 years, there has never been any complaint against him officially or unofficially. Tim Westwood strongly rejects all allegations of wrongdoing.’

The women, who do not know each other, were between 15 and 20 years old when they say they were attacked by the former Radio 1 star.

Each has provided their own claims in the wake of anonymous s*xual misconduct allegations leveled against Westwood on social media two years ago.

One woman was 20 when she, she told the BBC, met Westwood after assuring her mother that she was a work experience to help the DJ connect with a younger audience.

She claims that when Westwood picked her up in a large American-style vehicle, she began touching her inappropriately before a police officer detected her “erratic driving.”

Later, in a London flat, she claims the DJ sat next to her and tried to kiss her before they had s*x. She claims that the work experience he offered never materialized.

Using the alias Pamela, she said: “I’m in London alone with this boy who is much older than me.” Now, if I try to get out of that, who’s to say how he’s going to react. So I just submit to it.

“It was really weird and from behind he was pulling my hair and I was like ‘fuck, son of a bitch is going to rip my hair out’. And I remember him going into the bathroom and I was sitting on the bed and I remember looking for my clothes so I could get dressed quickly.

‘I don’t want this man to see me naked even though he just saw me naked. Is different. Traumatic. That’s how I would describe it. It was disgusting and I felt like shit afterwards. I felt really gross. How have I allowed myself to be subjected to that? That’s how I felt.

Other women claim that Westwood groped them during photo sessions with the celebrity after their shows. One said she was 22 and Westwood 59 when he “raised his hand up the back of her skirt” at a London New Year’s event in 2017.

The women, whose identities have been anonymised, will share their stories in a new BBC Three documentary, Tim Westwood: Abuse of Power, which airs at 9 p.m. tonight.

Statement

A statement issued by the BBC in response to Westwood’s allegations read: “The BBC is against all forms of inappropriate behavior and we are shocked to hear these allegations.” The BBC has strict codes of conduct for everyone who works for the BBC, including on-air presenters.’

The allegations are likely to further shake the music industry after hundreds of musicians have spoken out about their struggles with bullying and harassment in 2021.

X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson has previously demanded a parliamentary inquiry into the music industry and called for more regulation to protect artists from “bullying” agents and managers.

She said that she had been s*xually harassed by a music executive and, in a series of tweets, she claimed that she knew of two women who had been raped and others who had been brought to the brink of suicide by the industry.

Westwood, son of the former Bishop of Peterborough, is a well-known figure on the hip hop scene.

He started his career on local radio before joining Capital Radio in London and later BBC Radio 1 gave him his own show.

Westwood is considered one of the most influential rap and hip hop DJs in Europe and has won numerous radio industry awards, including Best Radio DJ at the Music of Black Origin ceremony.

In 1999 he was the victim of a shooting in South London after leaving a concert.

Two men on a motorcycle pulled up next to his Range Rover and fired several shots. Westwood suffered an arm injury and later said the attack was part of an extortion attempt by a gang.

Twitter

In 2020, Westwood was forced to deny involvement in similar allegations when the hashtag #survivingTimWestwood appeared on Twitter.

Westwood’s name and the allegations began trending on Twitter after an anonymous woman posted messages describing a four-year relationship.

Using the Twitter handle @survivingtimwestwood, she admitted that she had a crush on the DJ and that she had not gone to the police with any of her allegations.

Others who responded to the Twitter messages asked the bosses of Global Radio, where Westwood works for Capital Xtra, to investigate his behavior towards young black women.

The renowned DJ has vehemently denied tabloid accusations on social media that he has behaved inappropriately towards fanatic students.

In October 2013, Westwood was condemned by students for a “vulgar and s*xist” performance he put on during a Fresher event at the University of Leicester.

While performing as a guest DJ at the O2 Academy, he was heard yelling into the microphone: “Girl in the front row with the black dress on, I’ll fuck you later.”
