Kimberly Thompson, a drummer who toured with Beyonce for a number of years, has filed for a civil restraining order against the singer, and the details of her claim are truly wild, with accusations of “extreme witchcraft” and even kitten killing in the mix.
According to reports in The Blast, Thompson claims that the singer engaged in a campaign of harassment that included “dark magic” and “magic spells of sexual molestation”, as well as spying on her by tapping her phones, and controlling her finances.
Thompson also claims that Beyonce “murdered my pet kitten”, although further details of that allegation are unknown.
Los Angeles Superior Court denied the drummer’s request for a temporary restraining order on September 19, and there is currently a hearing scheduled for October 11. When sought for comment by The Blast, Thompson said: “All accusations … I survived are real.”
Thompson claims to have worked with the singer for seven years, and she also played in the house band for the first season of Late Night With Seth Meyers, led by Meyers’ former Saturday Night Live co-star Fred Armisen.
Beyonce has not yet commented publicly on the very odd court filing, but she has a lot on her plate right now, as she is currently in the midst of a US tour with husband Jay-Z.
Yesterday, she posted a shout-out to her Houston audience, saying: “Thank you to my hometown for being the loudest crowd so far. 7 more shows.”
