Bassnectar is being sued for alleged sex trafficking, pornographic material, and sexual harassment.

DJ Bassnectar has been sued for alleged to have committed sexual assault. Fox News may say with authority that two ladies have made a complaint. Lorin Ashton is being accused of “human trafficking,” “pornography,” and “sexual assault” of a minor.”

Amorphous Music, Interactive, Red Light Management, and the Bassnectar Touring C3A and C3 Partners LLC defendants were also listed as defendants in the case.

The suit charges that Ashton’s optimistic public image is just a cover for deviant impulses, which are then used to seduce young ladies and groom girls and eventually use his power to satisfy them.

Bassnectar publicly responded to the allegations in June 2020 before officially announcing an indefinite hiatus from music.

The case was brought on behalf of two female plaintiffs who were “sexually exploited as minors,” according to the lawyers, and cites allegations of “grooming, rape, and trafficking” reported on the @evidenceagainstbassnectar Instagram account. The complaint also charges Ashton and his numerous management firms of “engaging in a sex trafficking venture,” and the DJ is accused of “manufacturing and possessing child pornography,” according to the press release.

Bassnectar’s Evil Play

According to the court papers, the singer was accused of using social media, live shows, and other methods “to gain the confidence of young girls” and requiring them to contact him via a “secretive messaging app”. So that he could groom them for future sex acts, get them to give him sexually explicit photos, and further manipulate them for his own gratification.”

After shows, Ashton reportedly invites underage girls to his hotel room, insists they shower, and have sex with him, “requiring the sex to be unprotected.” He was also accused of offering “huge amounts of cash and other valuable things in return.”

As previously reported, he reportedly requested that the underage girls give him sexually suggestive pictures on their mobile phones, in violation of child pornography laws.

According to the lawsuit, Bassnectar will recommend that the plaintiffs watch the film ‘American Beauty,’ which follows a man who falls in love with an underage woman.

Despite knowing they were underage, Ashton would provide tickets and travel plans for the young women, demand sex during their time together, and place strict rules on them, according to the documents. The corporations listed in the suit are accused of “funding and promoting Bassnectar’s sex trafficking venture.”

One complainant, in particular, accused the star of meeting her at a hotel and having inappropriate sex with her before giving her $1,000. Later, he engaged in “sexual harassment” against the woman, requiring her to refrain from having sex with others while he was free to do so.

“In recent years, we have seen a real reckoning in which influential figures and organizations have finally been held accountable for years of sexual violence against adults and minors. However, we have just scratched the surface on how these powerful figures and institutions will continue to commit crimes for years without being kept accountable “said lawyer Brian Kent “This case is about finding justice not only against Bassnectar but also against the companies that help and abet the crimes he is accused of committing.”
