LONDON (Reuters) - Reality TV star Jade Goody’s widower Jack Tweed was cleared of raping a teenager by a jury in a London court on Monday.
Tweed, a 22-year-old club promoter, and his friend Anthony Davis were accused of raping the young student at Tweed’s east London home in the early hours of September 4 last year.
Davis was also acquitted of rape, according to the Press Association.
Tweed was jailed for 12 weeks in April last year, shortly after his wife’s death, for assaulting a taxi driver.
Goody, who shot to fame after appearing on the Big Brother television show, died in March after a high profile fight against cancer.
She and Tweed married after doctors told her the cancer had spread and was terminal.
