A millionaire businessman has been cleared of raping an 18-year-old woman after claiming that he “tripped” and fell inside of her after having sex with her 24-year-old friend. Property developer Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of forcing himself on the teen as she slept on his couch.
The incident occurred in August of last year. Abdulaziz met the two at a London club and ended up taking them back to his apartment for drinks. Early the next morning, the teen says she woke up to Abdulaziz on top of her and forcing himself inside of her.
“She woke up with the defendant kissing her and his penis in her vagina, she was wearing shorts and he had pulled them to one side,” according to prosecutor Jonathan Davies.
Abdulaziz maintains that the penetration was totally accidental, and that his penis may have already been poking out of his shorts from having sex with her friend.

He claimed he had gone to see if the young woman wanted a T-shirt to sleep in or a taxi home. But he said she pulled him on top of her and placed his hand between her legs.
His semen and DNA was found inside the young woman, but he said it was possible he had semen on his hands from having sex with the 24-year-old earlier.
In the evidence, Abdulaziz showed how the girl had put her hand behind his head to pull him towards her, which is how he says he fell.
He said: “I’m fragile, I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl nothing ever happened.”
The women met the millionaire in London’s West End club, Cirque le Soir nightclub, where he invited them to his private table.
A jury cleared Abdulaziz of the rape charge in just 30 minutes. The judge also let him submit case evidence “in private,” reports the UK Mirror.
