Actor Kaalan Walker, was found guilty on Monday, April 18 of serial raping six different women, three of them being 16-year-olds and now faces up to 100 years in prison.
The 27-year-old was accused of sexual assault by over 30 teenagers and a handful of young women back in 2021. The ladies claimed that he would use his fame to lure them in and would also claim to know famous rapper Drake and would promise to introduce them to him and other celebrities.
One of the rape victims who was an aspiring Victoria’s Secret model recounted her unfortunate ordeal with Walker stating that he invited her to his house for her to take headshots and promised to introduce her to Drake right after. Once she got to his premises, he asked that they shoot a sex tape but she refused. She revealed that Walker does not comprehend the meaning of the word ‘no’.
Walker was arrested on charges of forcible rape, unlawful intercourse with a minor and other felonies related to 11 of the victims in Los Angeles County.
According to the District Attorney Cynthia Wallace, Walker manipulated the girls by using their dreams and aspirations and name-dropped celebrities to lure them in.
“This was very sophisticated. He picked these girls and he appealed to their dreams and hopes and name-dropped Drake and used his connection to Halle Berry to get these girls somewhere and gain their trust. Once they were there, it wasn’t about doing photo shoots, it was about assaulting them,” said Wallace.
His lawyer Andrew Flier on the other hand believes that Walker did not get a fair trial and revealed his plans to appeal the verdict.
