Ryan Seaman (Falling In Reverse) To Drum For Matchbook Romance on Warped Tour

falling in reverse

Falling In Reverse‘s drummer, Ryan Seaman, will be taking a seat behind the kit for Matchbook Romance on the Vans Warped Tour from June 23rd to July 8th. Aaron Stern will be drumming on all other dates.

Seaman took the opportunity “to help out people that first helped [him] out,” and it worked out perfectly, what with Falling In Reverse taking some time off from touring. You can read Seaman’s statement about the guest appearance below:

I actually met Ronnie on a tour that my old band did with Matchbook 10 years ago and who would have ever thought that one day Ronnie and I would be in a band together, all based on a night in Las Vegas at House of Blues. Matchbook needed a trustworthy friend to fill in, and I owe a lot to these guys. And since Falling In Reverse have the summer off and was okay with me doing this, I feel like now is a better time than ever to help out people that first helped out me.  I’m really pumped on seeing you all out there. Come say hi if you see me!

Ronnie Radke Sues Accuser For Defamation

ronnie radke

Ronnie Radke has filed a civil lawsuit against a woman who has publicly accused him of sexual assault.

Throughout a series of Facebook posts and subsequent comments, as well as followups, Kacee Boswell, a 25 year-old Salt Lake City resident, accused Radke (and co.) with a group sexual assault, claiming it took place during and after the Falling In Reverse performance at the Murray Theater on June 3rd, 2015.

Boswell took to social media to describe injuries, including multiple bruises, a three-inch contusion on her jaw, and torn throat ligaments as a result of the alleged attack. Following making the accusations public, Boswell has been subjected to online harassment. She has since spoken with The New York Daily News. 

Radke has denied the allegations in a statement provided to Alternative Press. The magazine has also obtained a twelve-page complaint that was filed this morning with a civil court in Los Angeles, where the Falling In Reverse frontman resides.

The civil complaint makes a number of claims in an effort to contradict Boswell’s account. You can read the complaint, summarized by Alternative Press, below:

From the complaint: “As best as can be determined from Defendant Boswell’s shifting versions of events, Defendant Boswell claims that, on that night, she was raped two separate times, to wit, (1) during the band’s performance, in the band’s tour bus, with Radke’s bodyguard perpetrating the first alleged rape, and (2) after the band’s performance, in a car en route to Boswell’s home, with Radke and Radke’s bodyguard perpetrating this second alleged rape.”

The complaint continues: “Ronald Radke has been exonerated as fully as can occur in less than one week: The police swabbed the tour bus and the car and found no evidence of a rape. The police have taken no action against Radke. The police did not arrest Radke. The prosecutor has not charged Radke. Radke was not required to post bail. No restrictions have been placed on Radke’s movements.” One of Boswell’s Facebook comments stated Radke and his accomplice(s) posted bail, but information provided to AP by the Murray City Police Department appeared to contradict this.

The first rape was impossible, according to the complaint, as Radke’s bodyguard was present on or near the stage during Falling In Reverse’s performance. “The second alleged rape – after the performance, in a 4-door Nissan Maxima sedan, by Radke and the bodyguard – is equally impossible, since, among other reasons, Radke sat in the front of the car while Boswell sat in the back.”

So what does Radke allege happened on the night in question? He admits to a prior “casual intimate relationship” with the alleged victim. Her presence on the tour bus after the show is not in dispute, however, the band and crew say there were never less than a dozen people onboard.

Furthermore, Radke (and other witnesses) say the singer was never alone with the alleged victim.

After the show, Falling In Reverse buddy Danny Bateman (best known from Fuse TV’s Warped Roadies) offered to drive Boswell, Radke, and Radke’s bodyguard to a local bar called The Woodshed. Bateman drove, Radke sat shotgun, and the other two sat in back.

While en route, according to the complaint, “Radke decided that Boswell was seriously intoxicated or otherwise debilitated in some manner. Radke told Boswell that, instead of going to The Woodshed, Radke wanted the car to take Boswell either to a hospital or to her home. Boswell refused to go to a hospital, instead providing the name of an intersection as the location where she wanted to go.” Once at the intersection, “Boswell initially refused to leave the car; [Bateman] had to help secure her exit from the vehicle. Boswell then sat on the curb, awake, coherent and operating her phone.”

Radke says his driver called the police and a passerby offered to stay with Boswell. The claim alleges that Boswell indicated she lived nearby, so the car drove off, only to return shortly afterward to find her lying down on the ground. AP reached out to this passerby, who responded with a brief text message.

“I witnessed the three gentlemen leaving her on the side of the road extremely disoriented and intoxicated,” he wrote. “I had stated there was a brief altercation (heated discussion) prior to the police arriving. I did believe Ronnie’s story and allowed them to leave the scene before the police arrived.”

He suggested there may have been wrongdoing “on everyone’s part” but refused to speculate as to what happened prior to what he witnessed, or what, if anything, should happen as a result. He noted that he has cooperated with Murray City Police and will not be responding to any further media requests.

By numerous accounts, Radke and his bodyguard hung out with friends at the bar and grabbed a drive-thru meal before returning to the bus, after which they were escorted by police back to the station for questioning. The complaint notes that at no time were they under arrest. Radke says he cooperated fully, answering questions for several hours, then was free to go, without any restrictions on his movements (or charges filed) whatsoever.

Radke is suing Boswell for Defamatory Statements made online and to the New York Daily News, alleging she acted with some combination of malice, fraud, and/or oppression. “The gist or sting of the Defamatory Statements is that Radke is a rapist, an alleged rapist and/or someone who condones rape by members of his entourage and that Radke has been arrested and has posted bailed [sic] for a violent sexual crime.”

Radke’s suit seeks monetary compensation for damages to the singer’s reputation. “The Defamatory Statements make or are likely to make Radke the subject of hatred, contempt, ridicule, obloquy, opprobrium and/or shunning,” and causing damage to his “property, business, trade, profession and/or occupation.”

After numerous requests for an interview, Boswell finally agreed to speak with AP […]

Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse) Responds To Sexual Assault Allegations

ronnie radke

Last night, a series of Facebook posts went around accusing Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke of rape, following a show at The Murray Theater in Utah, on June 3rd. The woman, Kacee Boswell, a 25 year-old Salt Lake City resident, took to social media after her friend posted about the alleged assault on Facebook. Boswell claims that Radke and several others forced themselves on her sexually in the back of the Falling In Reverse’s tour bus following Wednesday night’s show. Boswell said the men dumped her on the curb afterwards. The victim further posted that she has undergone a rape kit with the Murray police.

Radke has tweeted twice, seemingly about the matter: “people are so fucking stupid” and “like….seriously?”

You can see Boswell and her friends’ posts below:

Radke has released a statement to AltPress in response to the allegations, which can be read below:

“The Internet is a wonderful place because everyone has a voice. It’s also an awful place for the same reason. This isn’t the first time people have taken it upon themselves to spread ugly, unsubstantiated claims about myself and my friends. No one from our band or crew were arrested in Utah. After our show in Salt Lake City, we were concerned for someone who appeared to be under the influence and called 911. I personally spoke with law enforcement. I certainly was never under arrest or charged with any crime.”

When contacted by phone, the Salt Lake City Sheriff’s Department had no record of Radke ever being held by them.

AP has been in contact with the Murray City Police Department (which FIR’s attorney stated were the ones called to the scene) in Utah and left messages for the detective assigned to the case. Thus far, neither the band’s attorney nor AltPress has obtained a police report, and officers we spoke with had no further details at this time.

Boswell initially agreed to speak with AP as well, but later said she would be making a blog post about it instead. She then gave a statement to the New York Daily News, which you can read below:

“The alleged victim told the Daily News that she sustained a bruised jaw, a broken nose and vaginal tearing in the attack and filed a police report at the hospital. What made the attack even more emotionally painful, she added, was that she had known Radke for nine years and previously had consensual sexual relations with him.”

Along with alleged physical attack, Boswell has been receiving verbal abuse from Falling In Reverse Fans.

“I’ve never felt so attacked and hurt in my entire life,” the alleged victim told the New York Daily News. “There was one girl who wrote that based on my Facebook picture I look like a whore. I’ve been harassed non-stop.”

We’ll keep you updated on this story, but what do you think about these allegations?
