Bassnectar and management sued, citing allegations of abuse, human trafficking and child pornography
Following allegations of sexual abuse and Bassnectar’s exit from the music industry in June and July last year, law firms in Philadelphia and Nashville have filed a joint lawsuit against Lorin Ashton, aka Bassnectar, Amorphous Music, Inc., Bassnectar Touring, Inc., Redlight , submitted to Management, Inc., C3 Presents, LLC and Interactive Giving Fund on behalf of their clients Rachel Ramsbottom and Alexis Bowling.
Plaintiffs claim they were sexually abused by Bassnectar when they were minors.
Bassnectar and various management companies are also accused in the lawsuit of being involved in human trafficking, according to a press release. Bassnectar is also accused of creating and owning child pornography.
“We have seen real reckoning in recent years from powerful individuals and institutions who have finally been held accountable for years of sexual abuse against adults and minors. However, we have only just begun to scratch the surface of how these influential figures and corporations can go for years of abuse without being held responsible, ”said Brian Kent, Attorney at Law, of Laffey, Bucci & Kent, LLP in Philadelphia. “This lawsuit is about seeking justice not only against Bassnectar, but also against the companies that work together and help facilitate the abuses it allegedly committed.”
