Keith Lee stated that back in 2016 or 2017, he had a very bad experience involving a woman who came onto him a lot of times despite him politely declining her advances. Lee said that after one point, al the details of that night are extremely fuzzy and he found himself in an unpleasant position when he could finally wake up.
Here’s a part of his story that he shared on social media.
“I would return to fresh drinks. We’d continue discussing the types of training I do. I’d try to get her to sing, but she would act shy and decline, saying she enjoyed listening to others, but didn’t want attention on her. I even offered help with ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ It’s kind of my go-to when people are nervous about karaoke. I try to be inviting. And that song is pure fun! Unfortunately… it’s right around here things become extremely fuzzy for me. No matter how much I rack my brain, all I find myself able to recall is struggling to make it to the stage….. I recall waking up naked in a hotel room (I don’t even recall if it was my own room), confused and in a panic. I was fortunate enough to have my essentials such as a wallet and phone. But… who knows what all I lost.”
