Rikki Rockett Rape Allegation?

Posted on Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 09:19PM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments28 Comments

Rikkirockett.gifSay it isn't so! One of my favorite drummers...busted on a strong arm rape charge out of Mississippi? According to my west coast mole Gerry Gittelson...the bust went down yesterday at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport).

The report is already on some other websites. Apparently my dear Rikki Rockett (Poison) was booked into Los Angeles County Jail - it seems he might already be out of the clink.

I hope he still has some of the Flesh & Blood money to hire a good attorney.  Remember - it's innocent until proven guilty in this country.  We'll see how these rape allegations pan out. Sigh.

 

Read the booking info here.

I guess no-one really knows, but from what I've known of him over the years, it seems unlikely to me. I guess both Rikki and the person making the claim will have their day in court, and we'll see what happens. I sure hope it isn't true tho.

ANYBODY who actually knows this guy knows that he is not capable of this. This guy doesn't have an ounce of aggressiveness or egotism in his entire body, and has always been respectful of all women !

It absolutely broke my heart when I heard that. I cant imagine Rikki EVER hurting anyone. This is so sad. I hope the truth comes out and he is innocent.

Rikki, I'll be praying for you

It's just hard for me to believe that Rikki would ever do anything like this.

There is just no way that this will hold water. Rikki could not have done this. This is just not right. I am behind Rikki all the way. He is a very good person and He does not have to Strong Arm any woman. Hang in there Rikki.
wtf... thats insane. :/ I´m on shock.

My prayers are with you, Rikki! Neshoba county is another world as far as I am concerned! I have been there and most people there see dollar signs when any celebrity comes to town! Best of luck!

There is absolutely NO WAY that this is true. Rikki is the sweetest guy ive ever met. I think the girl is just looking to get a big pay day after spreading her legs, a'la the Kobe Bryant situation a few years back.

I'm surprised to see Rikki Rockett's name involved in something like this but we'll have to wait and see what happens in court. The law says "innocent until proven guilty" but we all know its the reverse, Rikki will be the bad guy whether he did it or not. If he didn't, its a shame he stands accused. If he did, his celebrity shouldn't shield him from the consequences.

If the Poison tour gets delayed, think Bret will extend his solo dates? Bad enough they are booking smaller venues this time around, now this? Poison could be over if Rikki is guilty.

Rikki, i just want to send you all of my love and support through this difficult time.Lots of love, krisy

With what I've seen and heard of Rikki Rockett (and I've been a fan since 1986) he is the least likely person to be involved in such a bad situation. I wish him the best.
