Reg Traviss charged with 2 counts of rape

We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of the passing of powerhouse singer Amy Winehouse. In a surprising turn of events, her former boyfriend Reg Traviss has been charged with two counts of rape.

The 35-year-old director-producer was arrested on April 5th by Metropolitan Police in response to rape allegations that were alleged to have occurred between December 29, 2011, and January 1, 2012.

A friend of Traviss said:

“He does know the woman who made the report to police and he completely denies the allegation.  He wants to do everything in his power to fight this.”

On Wednesday Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, spoke with a New York City radio station and talked about how Amy had plans to marry Traviss as well as revealing that the two were trying to have children.

Traviss’ court date is set for July 17th, just 6 days before the one-year-anniversary of Amy’s passing.
