A former drummer for Beyoncé has accused the pop superstar of “extreme witchcraft.”
According to documents obtained by The Blast and confirmed by Pitchfork, Kimberly Thompson, a former member of Queen B’s all-female touring band, made the allegations when seeking a civil harassment restraining order against her old boss. A rep at the Los Angeles Superior Court confirmed to HuffPost that Thompson filed for a temporary restraining order on Sept. 19, which was denied. Court records show that there is a hearing on her civil harassment petition scheduled for Oct. 11.
In the the documents obtained by the Blast, Thompson, who said she worked for the “Formation” singer for seven years, alleges that Beyoncé harassed her by using “Extreme witchcraft, Dark magic” including “magic spells of sexual molestation.” There are also claims that the pop star tapped Thompson’s phones, controlled her finances and murdered her pet kitten.
Thompson also worked as a drummer in the original “Late Night With Seth Meyers” band during its first season in 2014. At the time, Fred Armisen served as the band leader.
Thompson and Beyoncé did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
