Pal of JLS Ortise Williams tried threesome as star had sex, rape trial told

JLS star Oritse Williams’s tour manager has told a court how he watched the singer have ‘awkward’ sex with a fan as he tried to initiate a threesome.

Jamien Nagadhana claims a waitress who has accused the pop star of rape consented to sex in a hotel room after a club gig.

But he told jurors it had been ‘a bit cringe’ because Williams,, 32, could be quite ‘oafish’ and added: ‘It probably wasn’t a fun encounter.’ Nagadhana, 32, is accused of sexual touching and assault during the incident at the Ramada Park Hall Hotel in Wolverhampton.

He told the city’s crown court he thought he could initiate a threesome due to the ‘vibes’ when he met the woman in the Gorgeous club’s VIP area. Nagadhana claimed she made no objection for the five or six seconds he was involved. However he said she did not appear interested so he went back to bed.

The alleged victim and two friends met the X Factor star after his solo concert at the club. She claims Williams raped her before Nagadhana ‘joined in’ after they plied her with booze and invited her back to the hotel.

Nagadhana said he had enjoyed the ‘bubbly, flirty, fun’ atmosphere at the club. When the women got to the hotel the ‘flirtatious vibes’ continued, he said. The girls left the room but the alleged victim returned, with her and Williams ‘getting together pretty much straight away’.

Nagadhana, who told the court he had been friends with Williams since they were 15, said Williams ‘rushed to get his way with her’ but the woman appeared ‘frustrated’. He went to sleep but was woken by the woman looking for her phone and later the police.

Williams, of Croydon, south London, denies rape. Nagadhana, of Hounslow, west London, denies sexual touching and assault by penetration. The trial continues.
