Tim Westwood has stepped down from his Capital XTRA show amid sexual misconduct allegations made by multiple women. The station’s parent company made the announcement official on Wednesday (April 27).
Three women accused Westwood of predatory sexual behavior, while four others alleged he groped them at events while having their picture taken with him, according to a joint investigation conducted by The Guardian and BBC.
Three venues previously canceled appearances set to be made by the famous DJ since the allegations were made public earlier this week.
“Following the claims that have recently come to light, Tim Westwood has stepped down from his show until further notice,” a spokesperson for Global relayed.
All of the women are Black and were in their late teens or early 20s when the alleged incidents took place, ranging between the 1990s up until 2017.
A rep for the 64-year-old DJ vehemently denied any wrongdoing when confronted with the allegations.
“Any suggestion that he acts, or has acted, in the way described would be false and seriously defamatory,” his lawyers said.
The allegations against the veteran British DJ were the subject of a BBC documentary titled Tim Westwood: Abuse of Power, which aired on Tuesday night (April 26) in the UK.
It’s currently not known who or what program will replace Westwood’s show on Capital XTRA.
