Ali B is temporarily leaving his work as an artist, entrepreneur and partner at his management company SPEC. The reason for this decision are the allegations of sexual misconduct against the artist, his management said.
In the wake of the much-discussed ANGRY-episode about The Voice two women have filed a complaint against Ali B. An ex-participant of the talent show claims that she was raped by him. But according to the 40-year-old rapper, there was mutual consent. He also denies the other allegations.
a lot of impact
“The episode has a lot of impact on Ali and his family,” writes SPEC, which the artist co-owns. “That he is already being publicly convicted on the basis of accusations is difficult for him.”
While waiting for the decision of the Public Prosecution Service regarding the two charges against him, Ali B will temporarily stop working. “Ali will focus on his family and refrain from commenting for the time being.” The company also writes that it “encourages everyone to engage in conversation about this topic. So that it can contribute to an industry where everyone can work safely and without fear.”
