YouTube sensation and one-time deejay, Clifton 'Cliff-Twang' Brown is now facing his most serious legal battle yet after his wife of five years has accused him of rape.
According to reports, the man who coined the famous term, Nobody Canna Cross It during a TVJ interview in the spring of 2011, was back in court on Tuesday after his wife alleged that he forced her to have sex twice. As a result, a protection order filed against Brown was violated.
Brown has vehemently denied the allegations, saying he was surprised by his wife's claims, telling the court, "Both of us sleep in one bed, in one room. We had sex twice, so I don't know how she say I rape her!"
This is the third time in three months that Brown has appeared in court to face charges. In January, the internet star was jailed for allegedly failing to pay child support. A month earlier, he was alleged to have bounced cheques at a Kingston gas station as he tried to purchase gas, amongst other items.
Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey denied Brown's bail request, claiming he was a danger to his wife. After reading excerpt from a police report on the matter, she said, "The police are opposing bail and I agree with them, the file says you are aggressive and violent. I cannot send you back to that house."
Brown was forced to represent himself in court during the hearing as he said he cannot afford a lawyer. He has since been allowed interviews for possible legal aid and will return to court on April 23 to answer the rape charge.
