  • The allegations are brought by Rachel Ramsbottom and Alexis Bowling, who claim the producer-DJ, real name Lorin Ashton, was well aware that they were under the age of 18 when they began messaging over Twitter in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
  • Their complaint, filed in Tennessee, paints a disturbing picture of the musician who allegedly 'groomed and ultimately exploited" the young fans, acting as a mentor or father-like figure to them, dictating what they could do, having them send naked photos of themselves, and handing them wads of cash'up to $1,600'after the alleged encounters.
