Curtis against Rape Charges
Internet celebrity Curtis Lepore, who is best known from the video-sharing site Vine, has been accused of raping his former girlfriend and fellow online star Jessi Smiles while she was sleeping.
A celebrity gossip site has reported that the alleged sexual assault had taken place in late August when Smiles, of Florida, had allowed Curtis to take care of her when she suffered a concussion.
Vine, the social application that allowed users to upload six-second videos to a stream, had given rise to a new genre of Internet stars since its launch just a year ago. Curtis Lepore and Jessi Smiles were two of the most recognized among the community.
The pair exchanged in some flirting via Vine until one day they finally decided to meet. In August, the two coordinated a meet-up in New York City, where they invited the rest of their Vine followers. A massive crowd gathered and witnessed the two kissing and deciding right then and there that they would become a couple.
But the couple who had met on Vine just weeks earlier called it quits within 2 weeks, TMZ said. Smiles continued to stay in L.A. and was filming a video for the popular social media forum when she suffered a concussion during shooting.
Sources told the site that Lepore allegedly offered to help his former paramour while she was recovering from her injury. As she was sleeping, Curtis took advantage of the situation and allegedly raped her. MailOnline usually refrains from naming victims of sexual abuse, but Smiles, whose real name is Jessica Vazquez, told TMZ to go ahead and write her name in the article. Both Lepore and Smiles have addressed the incident on their respective Twitter and Vine accounts.
Curtis was first arrested back in October but then released on $100,000 bail. On Tuesday, he appeared in court to fight the charges. Curtis’ lawyer said,
“Things are not always as they appear and there are two sides to every story.”
The day following the alleged rape, Smiles tweeted:
“Be careful of who you trust. Always be cautious for your safety. Be strong and don’t let your guard down…”

Curtis Lepore is free and clear in the eyes of the law. The Vine star – who was accused of rape by ex-girlfriend Jessi Smiles toward the end of last year – agreed to a plea deal in court today and had his charges dropped. Lepore pleaded no contest to the charges of sexual assault, which stemmed from an alleged incident last August.
Smiles told authorities that she injured herself while filming a Vine video and Lepore volunteered to nurse her.
Jessie says she was tired and feeling sick and fell asleep in Lepore’s presence and this is when the sexual assault took place. Under his plea bargain, Lepore was told to complete 24 days of community service and one year of counseling.
If he abides by this demand, the formal conviction will be reduced to “MISDEMEANOR assault”. There is no word at the moment from either Lepore or Smiles, but Curtis has maintained his innocence throughout the process.
He wrote on Twitter last month and urged fans not to rush to judgment. He said: “things aren’t always what they seem.”
