Rex Orange County charged with sexual assault in the UK

Alexander O’Connor, who is best known as Rex Orange County, has been charged with six counts of sexual assault in a London court.

On June 1, the 24-year-old singer allegedly assaulted a woman twice in London’s West End and then again four times the next day, including once in a taxi and on three instances at his home in West London, according to reports from The Sun.

O’Connor appeared at Southwark Crown Court in London on Monday to deny the allegations. O’Connor was later released on unconditional bail after pleading not guilty to all six charges. A trial date has been set for Jan. 3, 2023.

“Alex is shocked by the allegations, which he denies, and looks forward to clearing his name in court,” a representative for O’Connor said in a press release. “He is unable to make any further comment because of the ongoing proceedings.”

Earlier this year, O’Connor shared a social media post announcing the cancellation of tour dates for Australia, Europe, and New Zealand.
