The Voice's Melanie Martinez Accused of Rape By Former Friend Timothy Heller

Melanie Martinez, who was a finalist on The Voice back in 2012, has been accused of rape by her former friend, Timothy Heller.

“When I wrote this story about my assault, I initially wasn’t going to make the abuser,” Timothy wrote on her Twitter. “But I think it’s important for you all to know this is about Melanie Martinez.”

“I have kept this secret for years, convincing myself that it wasn’t a big deal and I wasn’t hurt by it. The thought of accepting that my best friend raped me seems insane,” Timothy added, saying she continually said “no” to her former friend.

Melanie took to Twitter to respond to the allegations.

“I am horrified and saddened by the statements and story told tonight by Timothy Heller,” Melanie wrote. “What she and I shared was a close friendship for a period of time. We came into each other’s lives as we were both starting our careers as artists, and we tried to help each other. We both had pain in dealing with our individual demons and the new paths we were forging, but I truly felt we were trying to lift each other up. She never said no to what we chose to do together. And although we parted ways, I am sending her love and light always.”

    If this “friendship” didnt fall through im sure we would of never heard about this incident. as a women i know i am not alone when i say ive been put in some uncomfortable smexual situations but that doesnt mean i was raped. ish like this leaves no room for REAL victims of brutal smexual assaults.
