Then in early May, a former manager of the musician, identified as “Jane Doe,” filed a lawsuit where she accused him of sexual assault and harassment, according to court documents obtained by E! news Jimmie denied the allegations.
“It is deeply troubling and hurtful that someone I counted as one of my closest friends, colleagues and confidants would make allegations that have no truth to them whatsoever,” said the singer in a statement obtained by E! News May 11. “I acknowledge that we had a sexual relationship-one that lasted nearly two years. During that time he never accused me of any wrongdoing, and he talked about our relationship and friendship as something he wants to continue forever . When things ended between us, he hired a lawyer to ask for money, which led me to question his motives.”
The 37-year-old added, “The simple truth is, his accusations are not only false, but also extremely damaging. All other legal actions are necessary to protect my reputation.”
