Woman who says Winehouse's lover raped her went clubbing

A WOMAN who claims Amy Winehouse's boyfriend twice raped her while she slept went out clubbing the next night, a court has heard.

The woman, in her 20s, who has accused film director Reg Traviss (35) of attacking her after she was so drunk she could not stand up, went out with friends last New Year's Eve.

She told Southwark Crown Court: "I didn't want to be sitting at home miserable thinking about it."

The woman, who cannot be named, claims Traviss raped her twice at his London home early on December 31.

The woman said she woke up to find Traviss raping her.

The jury of six men and six women were told he stopped when told to and they had a glass of wine on his sofa and talked before going back to bed.

She says she woke up again to find him raping her. Traviss denies this, saying the sex was consensual.
