April 15, 2009. MediaTakeOut.com just received some earth-shattering news. Apparently a member of Germany's leading female pop band has been arrested and charged with infecting a man with HIV.
Here’s what went down. MediaTakeOut.com learned that German prosecutors claim that Nadja Benaissa, a 26-year-old singer with the multi-platinum German group No Angels, had unprotected sex with three men in 2004 and 2006. And now one of the three men is HIV positive - allegedly as a consequence of his sexual relations with Benaissa.
Nadja has been arrested and charged with dangerous bodily harm. MediaTakeOut.com was able to confirm that she’s being kept in custody because, according to the investigating judge, there’s a risk she would repeat the alleged deed.
No Angels is Germany's most successful girl band, with five million album sales worldwide. The group was formed in 2000, when they won in the Popstars – and American-Idol type talent show on German TV.
