DJ Tim Westwood accused of sexual misconduct by seven women


Tim Westwood, the British DJ and radio presenter, is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct by women.

According to BBC, the accusers said he abused his position in the music industry to exploit them.

Westwood, 64, is accused of predatory sexual behaviour and touching in incidents between 1992 and 2017.

In an investigation to air on Tuesday, seven women said they met Westwood through his work.

Two of the women, who were aspiring to work in the industry, said they agreed to come to London to meet him to discuss music.

They accuse the DJ of driving them to a flat and initiating unwanted and unexpected sex.

One of them was quoted as saying she was 19 at the time while Westwood was 53.

Another woman said she met Westwood, then in his mid-30s, when she was 17 and a member of an R&B group.

She alleged she was subjected to unwanted oral sex after agreeing to meet him.

Four young women also accused the DJ of either touching their bottoms or breasts as they posed for photographs with him at different events where he was performing.

Allegations about Westwood’s behaviour toward young black women have circulated on social media for some time.
