Ian Connor, a “fashion muse” for Kanye West and a member of A$AP Mob, is currently under investigation for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman. The accuser’s name is Malika Anderson. Six days ago, Malika wrote a blog post on her website detailing events of the alleged assault that took place on October 5th, 2014. There’s an existing incident report at Dekalb County Sheriff’s office in Georgia that matches very closely with what Malika shared on her website.
“On my first post, 4 months after my sexual assault, I wrote about how the assault affected me and how the backlash I got from telling someone I loved the truth about what happened affected me. All of this was well before I decided to involve the police in my assault. But I am finally ready to say that I did. I pursued charges against Ian Connor for raping me.”
After the release of Malika’s post another woman, Jean Deaux, a Chicago singer, wrote a post titled “For Malika.” The post details her own sexual assault, supposedly at the hands of Ian. Jean explains why she helped Malika but didn’t report her own possible assault.
“Several months ago I was introduced to Malika Anderson, a friend of a friend who I soon learned had been assaulted by the man who attacked me. Once we exchanged stories I felt terrified, and also comforted. I wasn’t alone in this, but it also meant my attacker was a serial rapist. A sociopath, with an MO, a victim type, and a method. When she asked me to make a statement to her detective working her police report, I agreed. But when he suggested to me I report my own case, I froze. Not because I wasn’t honest, but because I knew his social rep.”
Ian hasn’t mentioned any of the women by name but pleaded his case on social media.
The investigation into the allegation is still ongoing.
