COSTA MESA, Calif. — A woman charged with stealing a $30,000 watch from rapper DMX has accused him of sexual assault.

TMZ reports that police responded to a call in front of the Ayres Hotel Costa Mesa, Calif., for DMX and the woman, 25, fighting.

DMX met the woman Friday night at a bar in Hollywood. The woman joined DMX and a group of people at his hotel room when someone noticed that she had vanished, along with the expensive watch.

Police found the watch on the woman and arrested her. Once she was in handcuffs, she claimed that the rapper sexually assaulted her.

Sources close to DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, tell TMZ that no sexual assault occurred. They say that multiple people were in the hotel room and the two never got together.

Police say they are still investigating the allegations.
