Basshunter Acquitted

CHART SPOTLIGHT. According to leading news daily Aftonbladet, Swedish singer Jonas Altberg aka Basshunter was acquitted in the sexual assault case covered by WelcheMusic last December. Two Scottish women claimed that Basshunter had harassed him, but the judge deemed their testimonies were unreliable and acquitted the Swedish singer completely.

Trial started in May

“This feels great,” says Altberg in a comment to Aftonbladet. The trial against Basshunter started this May. The two women filed the complaints last year. It turns out that the plaintiffs sold their stories to Daily Record for 500 Skr, before they even reported the incident to the police.

The Return to Big Brother

The incident has not stopped Basshunter from the spotlight. This April he returned to Big Brother as a guest. This resulted in the Swedish top ten hit “Fest i hela huset” (Party in the whole house) which peaked at No.5. This is his third biggest hit following the chart-topper “Boten Anna” and “Now You’re Gone” (which peaked at No.2). He previously took part in the UK reality show Celebrity Big Brother.
