UPDATE: The Gaslamp Killer’s response has been added at the bottom.
LA producer The Gaslamp Killer is being accused of rape.
Twitter user Chelsea Elaynne (@chelseaelaynne) shared a long form note earlier today, stating “The Gaslamp Killer drugged my best friend and myself at a party at the Standard Hotel, had non-consensual sex with both us while we were completely incapacitated and then dumped us back at The Standard after it happened.”
Elaynne later shared a screenshot of a private message he sent after her original post, stating “Can we please talk right now? Your friend is accusing me of rape and I need you to back me up here”.
She added that “me and rae are fuckin done being victims of this – this is HIS burden to bear” and shared another screenshot showing that she has been blocked by his account.
i would tag him, but today i noticed he has had me blocked, which pushed me over the edge and was the clearest admission of his guilt pic.twitter.com/blNRLbXjRw

UPDATE: Oct 14.
The Gaslamp Killer has responded to the allegations exclusively to Mixmag. Read his response in full below.
“My name is William. I think it’s important that I be a part of this conversation. Firstly, I want it to be known that I would never hurt or endanger a woman. I would never drug a woman, and I would never put anyone in a situation where they were not in control, or take anything that they weren’t offering. Consent is intimate, and has left room for people who were not present to wonder what happened.
“In this case consent was between three people, in the form of an offer which I accepted. Allegations carry a lot of weight on social media these days, and the bravery of women who expose their stories can create necessary dialogue that leads to real change. But Chelsea’s version of this story is not true.
“I am thankful that I have been contacted by witnesses and my roommates at the time, in support. Please know that while I am shocked, I take this all very seriously. It is all so sensitive and needs to be treated with the utmost care and attention.”
