Conor Oberst Sues the Superfan Who Claimed He Raped Her
About two months after he was accused of raping a 16-year-old girl at a concert in 2003, Conor Oberst is fighting back and is suing his accuser.
In December, Faircloth commented on an article on xoJane about dating rock stars and domestic abuse, and made allegations that Oberst not only came on to her at a 2003 concert in North Carolina but also forced himself upon her. “Conor took a lot from me, including my virginity, my dignity and self-esteem,” she wrote.
The Oberst camp responded to the accusation in January, but now the singer-songwriter has taken it a step further. Claiming that Faircloth is a “superfan,” Oberst says that since the accusations, his reputation has been ruined.
