Borns, an alternative pop singer who has collaborated with Lana Del Rey, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a four women. A series of allegations were made on Twitter this week accusing the musician of sexually manipulative behavior.
One former fan, Lyss, accused Borns of "grooming" her from the time she was 16, sending her explicit images and touching her inappropriately. When she turned 18, she alleges that "he got me drunk, started touching me, and we went into his bedroom. The things he did were things I did not want, and it hurt. He was aggressive and controlling and I was so scared of him." She emphasized that the sex was consensual.
Another accuser, Mathilda, said the singer demanded nude photos from her and that while she consented to sex it made her "very uncomfortable." Nia claims that she was "completely taken advantage of" by Borns while she was introxicated, saying that the singer refused to use protection when asked and left her bleeding after a sexual encounter. An anonymous woman submitted claims to Twitter account Exposing Borns in which she says the singer exploited her mental health issues and "took advantage of my being fragile ... he goes after young, impressionable, unstable fans who he knows will do anything he wants them to including sending very explicit pictures and videos they're uncomfortable sending [because] they love him and don't want to lose his attention".
The singer emphatically denied the allegations in an Instagram post.
