Amy Winehouse's former fiance Reg Traviss has been cleared on two counts of rape by a jury at London's Southwark Crown Court today (13.12.12).
Reg Traviss has been cleared of raping a woman at his home.
The director - who was engaged to Amy Winehouse at the time of her death - was cleared on two counts of rape today (13.12.12) after a jury at London's Southwark Crown Court acquitted him of attacking the 27-year-old woman in the early hours of New Year's Eve 2011 at his apartment in London.
Upon hearing the verdicts, Reg is reported to have shut his eyes and bowed his head, while cheers from his family and friends could be heard from the public gallery.
When giving evidence Reg, 35, insisted he and the woman, who had been a friend of his, had consensual sex after a night out drinking together and admitted he was ''completely and utterly flabbergasted'' by the allegations.
The woman had alleged she did not consent to sex and had woken twice to find Traviss raping her.
She had claimed she had been so drunk after going to three bars with him on December 30 she was unable to walk but jurors were shown CCTV footage during the four-day trial that showed the 27-year-old woman walking unaided to the toilet shortly before she left a West End bar where the pair had been drinking.
When giving evidence Reg insisted the woman - who cannot be named for legal reasons - had instigated sex after returning to his home after he had offered to sleep on the sofa. He told the court: ''She had a big smile on her face. She was being very inviting about me coming and getting into bed with her. She was someone that I knew and trusted. If she didn't then I would just go to sleep. But pretty much straight away we started kissing and touching each other.''
The sexual assault was first reported on January 18 and Reg was arrested on April 5 by the Metropolitan Police.
