The Regrettes’ Lydia Night Accuses SWMRS’ Joey Armstrong Of Abuse
The Regrettes frontwoman Lydia Night has accused SWMRS drummer Joey Armstrong of sexual misconduct.
Night provided an account of the ordeal in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday.
“I was in a relationship with Joey that started when I was 16 and ended right before my 18th birthday,” Night shared. “For so long I viewed it just as being toxic and not something valid enough to share but now I know that what I actually experienced was emotional abuse and sexual coercion by someone in a position of power over me.”
“It’s important to me that Joey and his entire band are held accountable to fully understand that even though they may view themselves as ‘good guys’ they are continuing to perpetuate the exact toxic culture they are trying to call out,” she added.
Night explained that she shared her experience on social media in response to SWMRS’ statement on Instagram addressing the stories of survivors of sexual abuse in the Southern California music scene.
She described it as “unbelievably hypocritical.”
