Reg Traviss will appear in court for two counts of rape next month...
Amy Winehouse's former boyfriend Reg Traviss has been charged with rape.
According to The Daily Mail, the film director - who dated Winehouse until her death in July 2011 - is thought to have been arrested on 5th April following an accusation made against him in January.
The 35-year old is now set to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 17th July for two counts of rape, which are said to have taken place in December 2011 and January 2012.
Crown Prosecution Service lawyer Rebecca Mundy confirmed the news yesterday (28th June), saying in a statement: "I have authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Reginald Traviss with two counts of rape.
"The alleged offences took place between December 29, 2011 and January 1, 2012. The decision was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors."
The Sun has since reported that Traviss denies the allegations.
