The graphic description of the rapper's assault allegations follows.

Rapper RiFF RAFF has been accused of rape from an Australian woman leading to the cancellation of his tour across New Zealand and Australia.

As reported by The Fader, a woman named Eliza Stafford took to Facebook to publicly write that aged 19 she was raped “by a man whose stage name is ‘RiFF RAFF'”.

He post alleges her first encounter with the rapper: “I was offered a shot from a (branded) vodka bottle that was sitting on the table. I was offered a 60 ML ‘party’ shot. I took the shot, it was syrup and I immediately asked what it was. RiFF RAFF and his support act told me that it was codeine and started laughing. I don’t remember anything from that point”.

Stafford wrote: “Another girl who had been backstage with me told them that I had been coerced to get in to a car with riff raff and his support act.”

“I woke up as Riff raff was pulling out of me and getting in to the shower. I crawled – truly, on all fours -out of the hotel room and managed to get outside where I booked a taxi who wouldn’t take me because I was “too drunk”

She concludes the post: “If you are planning on attending the riff raff show at the corner next week I urge you to reconsider”.

Booking agency Audiopaxx who are responsible for booking RiFF RAFF in Australia and New Zealand have responded to the statement on Facebook.
