Winehouse boyfriend accused of raping sleeping woman

The boyfriend of the late singer Amy Winehouse allegedly raped a woman while she was asleep, a British court heard today.

Reg Traviss, 35, attacked the woman after she was so drunk she could not stand, it was claimed.

The film director, who was Winehouse’s boyfriend when she died at her home in Camden, north London, in July last year, faces two counts of rape at Southwark Crown Court. He denies the charges.

Traviss and the woman, a friend, had been drinking at three bars in London on December 30 last year before going to his home on Marylebone High Street.

There, she alleges, she twice fell asleep to wake up with him raping her.
