Famed adult-industry performer Ron Jeremy has come under the scrutiny of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
A spokesman for the District Attorney told TheWrap on Wednesday that it is reviewing a case regarding Jeremy, which was presented to the D.A.’s office in December.
While the spokesman could not comment on the details of the case, TMZ reported that it’s a sexual battery case involving an alleged groping incident in the bathroom of West Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip hangout Rainbow Bar and Grill.
TheWrap has reached out to a representative for Jeremy for comment on the case.
Accusations of sexual misconduct are nothing new for Jeremy. A Rolling Stone investigative piece published in November detailed multiple such accusations.
Jeremy denied having non-consensual sexual interactions in a statement to Rolling Stone, telling the publication in a statement, “These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse … I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of ‘groping.’ I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this.”
Nonetheless, following the accusations, Jeremy was banned from the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo and Awards in January, though Jeremy told TheWrap that he didn’t plan to attend the Las Vegas event this year anyway.
“I was not planning on attending the AVN’s this year anyway as I’m filming 2 movies and performing stand up comedy all week,” Jeremy said. “All serious allegations are false. The truth with [sic] come out soon.”
