Riff Raff Allegedly Drugged and Raped a Woman

Add Riff Raff to the ever-growing list of celebrities who suck.

Eliza Stafford has accused the rapper of drugging and raping her back in 2013. Here’s what she wrote on a Facebook post about the night in question:

In 2013 I was raped by a man whose stage name is “Riff Raff”. I went to his show because my boyfriend at the time was a huge fan. My boyfriend was with me at the concert. I was asked mid-show to come backstage, and as a 19 year old I was flattered and complied. When I got backstage I was offered a shot from a (branded) vodka bottle that was sitting on the table. I was offered a 60ml ‘party’ shot. I took the shot, it was syrup and I immediately asked what it was. Riff raff and his support act told me that it was codeine and started laughing. I don’t remember anything from that point.

Another girl who had been backstage with me told them that I had been coerced to get in to a car with riff raff and his support act. She didn’t do anything. I had been actively fighting against them as she watched and they had eventually forced me in to a car. She told my friends this, we were all young and they didn’t tell anyone and I don’t blame them. I woke up as Riff raff was pulling out of me and getting in to the shower. I crawled – truly, on all fours -out of the hotel room and managed to get outside where I booked a taxi who wouldn’t take me because I was “too drunk”. I begged him to take me home, got back to my boyfriends house, and he was angry at me for “blowing him off”. I was punished for 6 months within that relationship for what “I did”. I was raped and blamed myself for 5 years.

Stafford recalled the alleged incident after a notification appeared on her phone, telling her that Riff Raff would be performing nearby. She encouraged fans to reconsider attending his concert.

Now, fans don’t have a choice. His Australia and New Zealand tour has been canceled. And the event that was scheduled to take place near Stafford has also been canceled. Here’s what the host venue, the Corner Hotel, had to say:

We have recently been made aware of allegations of drugging and sexual assault against Riff Raff on a previous Melbourne tour. The Corner & High Fi Events take allegations of sexual assault very seriously, and we have therefore cancelled Riff Raff’s upcoming show at the Corner Hotel.

Her ex-boyfriend is going to be very upset by this.

The rapper has yet to respond to the allegations or cancelations. That’s probably for the best.
