Soulja Boy is denying the recent allegations in a new lawsuit that he sexually assaulted a former personal assistant, and is considering legal action against her.
On Friday (January 22), the “Kiss Me Through The Phone” rapper gave a statement to TMZ and revealed he’s talking with his lawyers to review his options.
“I vehemently and unequivocally deny these allegations,” he said. “I am in contact with my legal team and the appropriate legal action will be taken against these lies.”
The suit was first reported on Thursday (January 21), and may be from the same woman at the center of the 2019 incident where Soulja was accused of kidnapping a woman and tying her to a chair in his garage. The new lawsuit was filed under the name of “Jane Doe” in an attempt to remain anonymous.
In the suit, Doe claims that Soulja sexually assaulted her, held her hostage, beat her, created a “hostile” work environment and often refused to pay her.
“Way’s treatment of our client, as an employee and as a person who deserves respect, has traumatized and filled her with fear,” Doe’s attorney Neama Rahmani said in the press release. “His abuse imprisoned her physically, mentally and emotionally. When she mustered the courage to flee, he impoverished her. His exploitation severely hampered our client’s ability to re-establish herself in the workplace and in society. We believe he should be held accountable.”
