Three Men Have Now Accused Topher DiMaggio of Allegedly Raping Them
Porn star Tegan Zayne was the first to discuss his alleged rape experience with fellow actor Topher DiMaggio, which he claims happened the night before they were supposed to film a scene. Now, two more have stepped forward with their own claims.
The second person is a man who is not in the porn industry and is going by the name "Dan" in this situation. He told his story to fellow gay news site Hornet, where he discusses how DiMaggio allegedly raped him back in 2016.
Excerpts from his story include:
Things went by, people left the party, and the next thing I remember is that I am alone with Topher in this place. I don’t know if I fell asleep and he woke me up, or how exactly I got into this position, but I was in the bedroom, I wasn’t wearing clothes, I was face-down, and he was trying to have sex with me.
And so I remember saying “No, I don’t want to do this,” and he said, “No, don’t worry about it,” and that’s kind of exactly what he said to Tegan. He was like, “No, it’s fine, don’t worry about it.” He inserted himself inside of me and started to have sex with me.
I said, “Stop, no, this hurts,” and he said, “Just don’t worry about it. Don’t worry about it.” And he kept going and going and going and I just remember saying “no, please stop, no, please.” And I remember … I could see it and feel it in my head. I could remember where I was, where my body was, the pain, where he was, and then he finished inside me.
And was like … OK, well, what the fuck? I don’t know where I am, really. I’m stuck here. And then I woke up the next morning, not really knowing what was happening, sort of putting the pieces together. It wasn’t until I left and went home and I showered and I felt the pain and I was like, Holy shit, I need to go see a doctor.
"Dan" went to the hospital and was put on anti-HIV medications for 30 days to prevent potential exposure. He didn't go to the police, however, due to fears of retaliation and not knowing “what this guy was capable of,” adding, “I didn’t know if he had guns or if he was on drugs.”
Now, a third guy has stepped forward with his own claims against DiMaggio, and they spoke exclusively with Str8UpGayPorn about it.
He is identified in this interview as "Bryan", who similar to "Dan" is not involved in the porn industry however the former's friend is who contacted the owner of Str8UpGayPorn regarding the alleged rape.
"Bryan", who is now 33, claimed that the incident happened back when he was 32. His story involves meeting DiMaggio at a club, who he claimed was very physical not only with him but his group of friends who he was with. He claimed DiMaggio started pushing his head down in the middle of the dance floor, but wasn't interested in hooking up with him.
Then, they both went back to a friend's house where "Bryan" alleges DiMaggio got really violent with him in the bathroom, where he pushed his face against the wall. Then, his lip allegedly busted open and he started to taste blood. Similar to what happened with "Dan", he tried to enter "Bryan" after pushing his face into a wall, which he did, but "Bryan" didn't yell for help during but didn't as he wasn't able to push DiMaggio off.
He then left and told his mother, roommate and friends about the alleged experience but just like "Dan"... never went to the police. He also got checked for STD's and HIV, and came back negative.
"Bryan" did say this regarding other people discussing what DiMaggio has allegedly done to them:
"I’m glad that this story has come out, because this is a real issue that other people need to hear about and learn from. I spent months worrying about my own reputation, or how I would look to others if people found out, and I’ve worried about being hurt all over again. But I think I’ve learned to think of myself as attractive again, and to love myself again."
