Jani Lane was raped?

Recommended Posts

I read an article yesterday where it was alleged that Jani Lane had spoken about being drugged and raped "by a musician from a famous metal band". This has stuck in my head since and I wonder how much his alcoholism and early death were related to this trauma. Does anyone here know anything about this tragic story? I searched for it in threads but couldn't find any here.

I miss his music and hope he is at peace. R.I.P. Jani.

Yeah, I saw a recent "Loudwire" video about it. It was very disturbing.

It was someone from a well known Metal band and that band's manager apparently.

IDK if anyone knows this or not but Madison Lane and Taylar Lane love talking about him on FB, IDK if this is something i'd ask them about, but they have some great tales of him that I find interesting, just fyi, and as for this, lets just hope the band was Vixen thats all I can say.

From what I understand, it was Tommy Lee. 

You're gonna have to give some kind of evidence to come outta nowhere and suggest that.

The Jani Lane rape half story has been around for ages, and seems to be genuine.
Who would make something like that up?
Until names are named, and given that he's dead, it won't likely hit the major news channels
Kinda sad that Bobbie decided to somewhat taint Jani's legacy with extra sadness...

Yeah, I think Bobbie should have shut her mouth unless she was prepared to name names, which of course she wouldn't. 

It was obviously and understandably a source of great pain and embarrassment to Jani. I think he'd be mortified to think that it would become public knowledge. 

He chose to not make it public and confide in Bobbie. I dare say she was the only person he told. 

She shouldn't have mentioned it.

The only reason to talk about something like that at all would be to bring justice to those who were wronged, IMO.

And since she refuses to name names -- even though those involved would undoubtedly deny any involvement -- this does nothing but add prying eyes and speculation to a situation Jani obviously didn't want any attention being paid to, otherwise he would have brought said attention to it himself.

The problem is that if she named names then she would be open to a lawsuit since I seriously doubt she has any evidence other than what Jani told her in confidence. Which makes you wonder why she mentioned the incident at all....maybe looking for publicity for some reason?....not that it matters she should have kept quiet....

I'm no lawyer, but I'm not sure if you can sue someone for defamation or libel when it's in reference to what someone else said, especially when that person is already deceased. Because of the circumstances, it's nothing more than hearsay (unless Jani somehow kept proof of the atrocious act and Bobbi has it), so yes, she should just keep her mouth shut and let the guy rest in peace.

You still haven't said why you believe it was Tommy Lee.

It wasn't just his ex-wife who mentioned it. Jani himself referenced it in an interview while he was still alive.

Did he? Do you remember which interview?
