The rising hip-hop star, real name Asa Asuncion, stands accused of taking advantage of a female while she was passed out at a friend's house in the early hours of Friday (20Mar15).

His alleged victim, who he had met earlier in the week, was taken to the nearby St. David's Hospital, where she filed a complaint with police, but the rapper had left the property by the time cops arrived to question him.

Charges were lodged against Gleesh on Monday (23Mar15), four days after he performed at a series of shows as part of the South by Southwest event.

He reportedly cancelled a string of other planned gigs over the weekend (21-22Mar15) after the reported incident.
