A top choreographer who has worked with the likes of Jay Z, Beyoncé and Kanye has been accused of raping a drunk 17-year-old girl.
Bijan Williams, 34, was arrested at the luxury Maritime Hotel in New York City on Sunday morning after the teen claimed he sexually assaulted her in the hotel room while she came in and out of consciousness, the New York Daily News reported.
The pair met in a bar, had a few drinks and talked for a while before she ended up unconscious in his room, police say.
The girl claims that in her moments of consciousness she saw him having sex with her.
She informed the police, who then arrived at 5:30 am and found him out of his room but still on hotel grounds.
The choreographer has been charged with rape and unlawful imprisonment because the teenager says he slept at the room’s door to prevent her from leaving.
The Manhattan native – whose stage name is Rythmik – is a model, dancer and a choreographer.
He also directed routines on Monster by West and Jay Z and has worked with Beyonce and Madonna, according to the portfolio on his website.
He was a pre-med student at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey before he studied acting at Oxford University.
He started Hip Hop training at Broadway Dance Center and landed his big break as a dancer on Jay Z’s ’99 problems’.
In 2014, he started a fundraising effort to contribute to an anti-sex-trafficking campaign.
If found guilty, he faces up to four years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines, according to New York Law.
Another celeb who was accused of raping someone was Celo Green who’s career ended after a woman claimed she was raped by the singer after she had a drink with him which was spiked.
