Former Manager Drops Jimmie Allen from Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Former Manager Drops Jimmie Allen from Sexual Assault Lawsuit

In a recent development, court documents reviewed by Rolling Stone reveal that Jimmie Allen, the country singer, has been dropped from a sexual assault lawsuit filed against him by his anonymous former manager. The plaintiff, referred to as Jane Doe, requested the dismissal of her claims against Allen, and in turn, Allen requested the dismissal of his counterclaims against her. Representatives for both parties have not yet responded to requests for comment.

Although Allen is no longer a defendant in the suit, Jane Doe continues to pursue legal action against co-defendants William Bowers Management, Wide Open Music, and founder Ash Bowers. The claims against them include negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and participation in a venture engaged in sex trafficking. Jane Doe alleges that the co-defendants normalized Allen’s sexual harassment.

Initially, Jane Doe accused Allen of sexually assaulting and harassing her multiple times between 2020 and 2022 while she served as his day-to-day manager. The lawsuit claimed that Allen openly and publicly sexually harassed her during photoshoots, public appearances, and performances, making inappropriate comments about her single status and appearance. The suit also alleged that Allen sexually assaulted Jane Doe after a filming of American Idol, when she was incapacitated and unable to give consent.

Following the allegations, Allen admitted to having an extramarital affair but maintained that his relationship with Jane Doe was consensual. He expressed deep concern and hurt over the false allegations made by someone he considered a close friend and confidant.

It is worth noting that a second Jane Doe filed a separate lawsuit last June, alleging that she had consensual sex with Allen but that he filmed the encounter without her consent and ejaculated inside her despite her multiple requests for him not to. Allen has countersued the second accuser, and that lawsuit remains active.

The allegations against Allen led to several music companies severing ties with him, including his record label BBR Music Group.
