Country singer Jimmie Allen suspended from label amid sexual assault lawsuit—report

Country singer Jimmie Allen, known for hits like “Best Shot” and “Make Me Want To,” has reportedly been suspended from his record label, BBR Music Group, following a sexual assault lawsuit filed against him.

The lawsuit was filed in April by a woman identified as Jane Doe, who alleges that Allen sexually assaulted her in 2020 after a concert in Los Angeles. The suit claims that Allen invited the woman to his hotel room after the show, where he forced himself on her despite her repeated objections.

Allen has denied the allegations, calling them “false and malicious.” However, his label, BBR Music Group, has reportedly decided to suspend him while the case is ongoing.

The suspension comes as a blow to Allen’s career, which had been on an upward trajectory in recent years. The singer, who is Black, made history in 2018 as the first Black artist to launch a debut single at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. He has since released two successful albums and collaborated with artists like Noah Cyrus and Nelly.

Allen’s suspension also highlights the ongoing issue of sexual assault and harassment in the music industry, which has been brought to the forefront by the #MeToo movement. Several high-profile musicians, including R. Kelly, Marilyn Manson, and Drake Bell, have faced allegations of sexual misconduct in recent years.

The lawsuit against Allen is still pending, and it remains to be seen how it will affect his career in the long term. In the meantime, BBR Music Group has not yet made an official statement on the matter.
