Tim Westwood steps down from Capital Xtra radio show amidst recent allegations

Tim Westwood Cancelled!

Tim Westwood has stepped down from his Capital Xtra radio show “until further notice” after sexual misconduct claims, the station’s parent company has said.

“Two of his forthcoming DJ sets in Birmingham and Bognor Regis have also been cancelled in light of the allegations.

The women accused Westwood of predatory sexual behaviour and touching, claiming he abused his position in the music industry to exploit them.

Two said he had initiated unwanted and unexpected sex, one claimed she was subjected to unwanted oral sex, and four accused the DJ of touching their bottoms or breasts.

The women who spoke to the BBC are all black, and said they met Westwood through his work. They told their stories in a BBC Three documentary, Tim Westwood: Abuse of Power.” – BBC
