Last month, William Bensussen aka The Gaslamp Killer was accused by a woman of having raped her. Chelsea Tadros took the matter to Twitter, saying the producer drugged her and raped herself and her friend RaeAn Medina back in 2013 at the Los Angeles' Standard Hotel. Though Bensussen has since then admitted to the sexual encounter, he also says it was consensual and that there are witnesses who can confirm it; his friend and collaborator Flying Lotus was one of the people supporting the producer, but he has himself since then apologised to the victims for his comments that seemed to defend Benhussen and removed his support.

Now, and with the producer's label Brainfeeder and L.A. event promoter Low End Theory cutting ties with him, Benhussen has filed a $5 million suit against the two women and the boyfriend of one of them, alleging defamation on social media and maintaining the sexual encounter was consensual.

The unveiling of this story seems to come as another consequence of the Weinstein effect, which has several women who have been abused by men in power (especially in the entertainment industry) finding the courage to speak up.
