    Jade widower Jack Tweed 'raped teenager'


    by ODN


    The widower of reality TV star Jade Goody raped a shy teenager after pestering her for a threesome after a night out, a court has been told.

    Jack Tweed attacked the then-19-year-old while his friend Anthony Davis held the bedroom door shut and told him: "Do what you've got to do", Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London heard.

    Tweed, a 22-year-old club promoter, denies attacking the young woman in the early hours of September 4 last year.

    Linda Strudwick, prosecuting, said the alleged victim and her friends went to Tweed's house in Woodford Green, east London, after a night out at the Embassy club in Mayfair.

    The woman "made it plain to both defendants that she was not interested in them sexually", Ms Strudwick said. But Davis pushed her into a bedroom and called for Tweed to join him in the alleged attack, the court was told.

    Tweed denies two counts of rape and Davis, a 26-year-old estate agent from Chigwell, Essex, denies one count of the same charge. Both are on bail.
