The tour manager of Oritse Williams (pictured at court yesterday) has told a jury how he tried to start a threesome as the singer had ‘cringey and awkward’ sex with a fan
The tour manager of JLS star Oritse Williams has told a jury how he tried to start a threesome as the singer had ‘cringey and awkward’ sex with a fan.
Jamien Nagadhana, who was also Williams’ driver, denies sexually assaulting a woman as she was allegedly being raped by Williams.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard claims the two men attacked the ‘zombified’ woman at a hotel after Williams performed a gig at a nightclub in December 2016.
The complainant claims Williams raped her before Nagadhana ‘joined in’ after they plied her with booze and invited her back to the city’s Ramada Hotel.
Williams told the court he believed Nagadhana was ‘under his covers’ in a different bed when the woman knocked on his door and asked to spend the night with him.
Giving evidence today, Nagadhana said he had enjoyed the ‘bubbly, flirty, fun’ atmosphere at the club where they drank alcohol together and danced.
He said when the women got back to the hotel the ‘flirtatious vibes’ continued as the girls kissed on the bed and discussed ‘sexual stuff’ and orgies.
Describing how the woman left and then returned to the room, Nagadhana told the court: ‘She comes back and I remember her and Oritse start getting together – kissing, hands around each other.
‘I am still in my bed. I would probably have been on my phone on my bed. I had seen her and she had seen me.
‘I think the sex was cringey and awkward. It wasn’t smooth; I know him, he is a bit oafish.’

As Williams had sex with the alleged victim, Nagadhana said he decided to go over towards them because the sex was ‘cringey’ and he thought the woman was ‘probably not’ enjoying it.
‘I thought I would try and initiate a threesome perhaps,’ he told the jury. ‘I thought maybe she would want to have a threesome because of the vibes we had had earlier.’
Claiming he touched the woman in an intimate area for around five to six seconds after she looked at him, Nagadhana added: ‘She didn’t really respond.
‘I realised she was not being turned on and I have gone back to my bed.’
Nagadhana claimed that during the encounter, the woman had not made any verbal objection and had not tried to resist.
Nagadhana, from Hounslow, west London, also told the jury he fell asleep in his single bed as Williams and the woman were about to engage in further sex.
The tour manager, who has known Williams since they were 15, said the alleged victim and her female friend had been ‘just acting merry’ after taking a taxi to the hotel from the nightclub.
The 32-year-old denies charges of sexual assault and assault by penetration. Williams, also 32 and from Croydon, south London, denies rape.
The trial continues.
