Woman Who Accused Falling In Reverse’s Ronnie Radke Of Rape Speaks Out


0

25-year-old Kacee Boswell made headlines recently when she accused Falling In Reverse‘s Ronnie Radke of raping her. Radke later denied her claims, before filing suit against her for defamation in regards to the allegations. Boswell has now given the same venue Radke himself has been using for most of his statements, Altpress.com, an interview on the matter. In it she clarifies that it was not a gang rape, and that Radke was the only participant in the assault.

The confusion regarding it being a gang rape involving others originally came to be from a friend of Boswell‘s, who stated “A pile of literal human garbage named Ronnie Radke gang raped someone really important to me last night“. Boswell has gone on to state that was not the case, and that it was in fact Radke who assualted her, though his bodyguard was present during the incident. An excerpt from the interview can be found below:

Can you walk us through the events of that night? There’s a lot of conflicting information out there. Levi’s post, the NY Daily News, Ronnie’s statement —
KACEE BOSWELL: Ronnie’s statement is a direct conflict with what the witness had to say to law enforcement. He doesn’t want to do any press. But I can tell you what he said to them.

You don’t have to be any more explicit than you’re comfortable with, but since I’m talking to you, I’d like to hear what happened [from you]. You both acknowledge you had some kind of prior relationship in the past.
Ronnie actually told the witness that he had never met me before in his life. The witness saw Ronnie leave me on the side of the road and came over to me. Then Ronnie and [his bodyguard] came back. The witness was like, “What’s going on?” And they were just like, “We don’t know this girl. She was acting crazy. We didn’t know what to do. She was going to come to the bar with us. But, like, she told us where she lived and we didn’t really know where she lived so we just dropped her here.” The witness was like, “OK, well, have you guys called the cops?” And they said, “Yes.” Then Ronnie started yelling at me, and said, “You have no idea how much trouble you’ve gotten me into, Kacee.” Then they got in the car and sped off again. So we waited on the curb for the police to show up. They didn’t. Finally this police car drove by and the witness flagged it down. [The cops said] “We have no record of anyone calling the police.” That police officer stayed and called the police for us. That’s when EMS came and took me to the hospital. [In a text message, the witness told AP he saw “three gentlemen leaving her on the side of the road, extremely disoriented and intoxicated,” noting, “I did believe Ronnie’s story and allowed them to leave the scene before the police arrived.” – Ed.]

You came to the show to see the band and because you knew Ronnie, right?
Yeah. He gave me two backstage passes. I still have the other one. He texted me [inviting me to the show] and I was like, “Oh, yeah, just send me some passes.” I have no shortage of girlfriends who are huge fans of his, but I ended up going by myself.

I read something alleging Ronnie’s bodyguard assaulted you during the show.
I didn’t say that.

Were you misquoted? I thought I saw that somewhere.
I didn’t say that. I don’t want to get into explicit detail about what happened with Ronnie and I. My lawyers have told me not to. I’ve been completely barraged by text messages and phone calls saying I should kill myself, saying that I’m too ugly to be raped. I’ve been accused of extorting him for money and all sorts of things. My statement to those people is: “Wait until the rape kit comes back” and the police report gets sorted out with the witness. The witness did say that he was going to talk to the police and tell the truth, which completely contradicts Ronnie’s statement [to AP]. [The witness tells AP he is cooperating with police, but refused to speculate as to whether a crime was committed. He indicated he will decline any future press requests. – Ed.]

The NY Daily News wrote, “A 25-year-old woman is claiming Falling In Reverse singer Ronnie Radke and several others forced themselves on her sexually.”
I never said “several others.”

“Gang rape” is definitely in the first sentence. Where did they get that?
Where I think they took that from is those other news sources, like Metal Sucks and whatever, saying that I accused them of gang rape. I never accused anyone of gang rape. With all due respect, I’m not willing to go through a play-by-play of the night. But I never said that anybody gang-raped me.

You wrote that Radke and his bodyguard posted bail. Would you like to clarify?
Well yeah I would like to, as best as possible. At the hospital, a Murray Police Department officer asked me if I knew exactly where they were. I told her that they [had played] the Murray Theater. So they did the whole rape kit thing, which is so embarrassing, and just so degrading. They had given me some pain medicine. I was at the hospital for over two hours. The officer came back and said they had caught them right before the bus was leaving, which contradicts [what Ronnie and his bodyguard] told the witness, which was that they had to leave right then to get to bus call. So they left me on the side of the road and went to go play pool at a bar. I believe they went to The Woodshed. Somebody from, I guess, Slaves, or whatever band, said that I was with them at the bar, which is absolutely insane, because I wasn’t. So they lied about that.”

As she has mentioned in past statements via her Facebook, since going public with her claims, Boswell has unfortunately faced a barrage of cyberbullying and hateful comments from numerous sources, including fans of the band and supporters of Radke.
