The Runaways Singer Has Different Memory Of Jackie Fox's Rape Incident

(Classic Rock) Ex-Runaway Cherie Currie has offered her eyewitness account of the hotel room incident at the centre of bandmate Jackie Fox's rape recollection. Fox said earlier this year that, when she was 16, impresario Kim Fowley had made roadies force-feed her drugs, then had sex with her while an entourage, including Currie and Joan Jett, watched and did nothing to help her.

Both have previously distanced themselves from Fox's account of events. She's called on fans not to make scapegoats of her former colleagues, who she says were also victims of Fowley's machinations.

Now Currie tells Classic Rock's Rob Hughes: "I was in the room that night. But what I saw was a giddy, high little woman who was telling Kim what to do to her, every step of the way. The sexual intercourse happened because she asked for it."

She continues: "I said: 'This is... sick and I'm not watching.' I walked out in protest - I thought it was disgusting that Kim was doing such a thing, and I felt equally disgusted that Jackie was participating." Read more here.
