Talib Kweli Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Ex-Collaborator Res

Res outs Talib Kweli.

Talib Kweli is the latest rapper accused of sexual harassment, in this case by former collaborator Res, who claims that he held her career “hostage” after denying his sexual advances. The two linked in 2009 to form their group Idle Warship.

After his label (Javotti Media) refused to release her music, she walked and Kweli sued her for breach of contract. Now she alleges ulterior motives, venting to Twitter: “I tried to be humble but you letting a kiss that you didn’t get keep my career on hold and I dare you to say I’m not telling the truth.”

Since her series of tweets on Thursday (May 31), Kweli now claims that Res is using the #MeToo movement to skip paying debts. He tweeted: “She was sued by me for stealing music so she making up lies. These lies were already dismissed in court so she hella mad.”

While making the aforementioned comment, he posted a screenshot of the court document detailing her counterclaims in the lawsuit; including sexual harassment.
