I was sexually assaulted by six men in music industry, claims Sinitta

Sinitta has claimed she was sexually assaulted by six men in the music industry.

The pop star, 54, told the Daily Mirror one of the attackers was a singer she had admired since she was a child, while another was an influential figure who tried to force her to perform a sex act.

The latest attack came two years ago, when an unnamed man tried to kiss her, she said.

Sinitta said she told close friend and former partner Simon Cowell about the attacks and he confronted two of the men.

But she was afraid to make her allegations public for fear of being seen as “public enemy number one” within the music industry and only now feels able to come forward thanks to the #MeToo movement.

She told the newspaper: “I was afraid to speak out as I didn’t want to end up in somebody’s car boot. These men are all powerful people.

“I’m talking now as I don’t want any more girls and women in the industry to have to go through what I did.”

Sinitta fears the music industry’s sexual harassment problem may be just as bad as Hollywood’s.
