Country singer Jimmie Allen, renowned for his humorous performances, is embarking on an intriguing career shift. Recently, he took to Instagram to announce the upcoming I Said What I Said Tour, a three-date comedy tour scheduled for October. As of now, specific dates and venues have not been disclosed.
It's worth noting that all the shows on the I Said What I Said Tour will be exclusive, with invites only. To stand a chance to win tickets to the show, Allen urged his followers to sign up via email.
This comedy tour news surfaces amidst sexual assault allegations that have been leveled against Allen. In May, a Jane Doe filed a civil suit in Tennessee federal court, accusing the country singer of rape and sexual harassment during her time as part of his management team.
The case was brought forward by attorney Elizabeth Fegan, who previously represented victims in high-profile cases involving Harvey Weinstein, a prominent Hollywood executive, and Dr. George Tyndall, a campus gynecologist at the University of Southern California, who faced allegations of sexual abuse. In response to these serious allegations, Allen acknowledged having a sexual relationship with the accuser but vehemently denied any truth to the rape and sexual assault claims.
As a consequence of these allegations, Allen faced swift repercussions, including being dropped by his label home, BBR Music Group, and his management company, The Familie, along with his public relations firm, Full Coverage Communications. Additionally, his booking agency, UTA, suspended their association with him.
In June, another unnamed accuser came forward, filing a lawsuit alleging that Allen assaulted her in a Las Vegas hotel room and secretly filmed the encounter without her consent. Subsequently, Allen countersued both accusers this month, contending that the first accuser had defamed him, while the second accuser unlawfully took possession of his cell phone.
