“Officers from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating an allegation of rape,” Scotland Yard said in a statement.

“The allegation was reported to police on 17 November 2016 by a woman who alleged she was raped at an address in Chelsea in June or July 2004 when she was aged 21. There have been no arrests at this stage and inquiries continue.”

The publication reported that authorities told Prince last month that they’d requested Blaine to travel to England with his lawyer for an “interview under caution.”

Blaine’s attorney Marty Singer,  has denied the allegations in a statement.

“My client vehemently denies that he raped or sexually assaulted any woman, ever, and he specifically denies raping a woman in 2004, If, in fact, there is any police investigation, my client will fully cooperate because he has nothing to hide,”  the statement said.
