Yikes! Too $hort Reportedly Being Investigated For Raping One of His Artist
According to TMZ, Too $hort is the suspect in a rape case involving one of his own artists. The alleged victim is a protege of the rapper who has done videos and other projects with him.
The unidentified woman claims that on November 1 she was at an L.A. residence with the rapper when he allegedly sexually attacked her. She told cops she’s a virgin and despite her provocative videos she did not give any form of consent.
The woman went to law enforcement officials a month after the alleged incident. Now, there’s always two sides to every story though. Too $hort, real name Todd Shaw has not been in touch with police.
Sources close to the Oakland-bred rapper say he’s vehement he never had sexual contact with the alleged victim. The sources say she was on his record label but was eventually dropped, and that’s coincidentally when she made up this allegation. They even say the victim tried to get back on the label, and Short thinks this as a form of extortion.
HipHollywood has reached out to his reps for comment, but haven’t received a response.
