Mexican singer, Kalimba, is accused of rape.
A recent scandal in the latin entertainment world that has everyone talking is the arrest of pop star Kalimba. Peopleenespanol.com has been keeping track of every detail of the case and is constantly reporting.
The 28-year-old well-known Mexican artist was first seen involved in a scandalous case on December 20, 2010 after an allegation of rape of a minor.
The 17-year-old girl accused Kalimba of rape after a concert he held on December 19, 2010 at Chetumal, Quintana Roo. The minor was working as an escort at the event and allegedly was invited to join Kalimba at his hotel. According to the girl, the pop star attacked her in his room and raped her.
Days after this allegation, it was revealed that a second minor accused Kalimba with the same charge. She also claimed that the artist
sexually abused her on the same night the previous girl declared.
As expected, Kalimba denied the charges and claimed that it was all an act by the minors who were taking advantage of his popularity to get their five minutes of fame.
After a medical examination on one of the girls confirmed that she had been a victim of rape, action was taken by the state of Quintana Roo and they issued an arrest warrant for Kalimba.
After the warrant was issued, authorities declared that the singer was disappeared and could not be located. On January 20,2011, Kalimba was found and arrested in El Paso, Texas and shortly after he was sent to Chetumal, Quintana Roo.
As of today, the singer is in jail and is waiting for the judge to start the process on the alleged rapes of the two minors. If proven guilty, Kalimba could face up to 25 years in prison.
Contrary to one of his popular songs, ‘Dia de Suerte’, Kalimba is definitely not having a lucky day.
