The rock star responds to allegations put forth in a new interview with Runaways bassist Jackie Fox.
Cherie Currie has responded to the rape allegations made by Runaways bandmate Jackie Fuchs, who played bass in the band as Jackie Fox in the ‘70s, against former manager Kim Fowley.
As previously reported, Fuches told the Huffington Post that Fowley raped her on New Year's Eve in 1975 after a roadie insisted she took a Quaalude pill. She also alleged that members of the band, including Joan Jett, watched as it happened.
“I have been accused of a crime,” Currie wrote on Facebook on Saturday, July 11. “Of looking into the dead yet pleading eyes of a girl, unable to move while she was brutally raped and doing nothing. I have never been one to deny my mistakes in life and I wouldn't start now. If I were guilty, I would admit it.”
