Louis Walsh, the Irish music manager and judge on the Uk X Factor, is being investigated over allegations he indecently assaulted a young man in a nightclub toilet. A 24-year-old single dad claims Louis Walsh groped him following a Westlife concert in Dublin, according to the UK's Daily Mirror.
Walsh has reacted angrily to the claims, categorically denying he indecent assaulted the man, saying, "The allegations made against me are wholly false and with no foundation. I will happily co-operate fully with the police and am 100% confident after a full investigation I will be fully exonerated". The unnamed man claimed he drank with Walsh in Dublin's Russell Court Hotel Bar and later in the Krystle nightclub. He claims the alleged assault took place when both men visited the club's toilets. Police have now seized Cctv footage from the establishment. A spokesman for Walsh said, "He vigorously denies all of the allegations. If contacted by the police he will willingly co-operate with any investigation. Louis categorically denies any wrongdoing and will fight to clear his name".
A police source said an investigation into the matter is "on going", but Louis Walsh is yet to be interviewed. The 58-year-old joined the judging panel of X Factor in 2004 with Simon Cowell and SHARON OSBOURNE.
