Williams, 32, who denies raping the 20-year-old woman, also claimed that he was ‘taken advantage of’ because of his boyband fame. In court on Monday the jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Williams’ police interview in which he said: ‘The girl said she wanted to spend the night with me, I said no problem, we started making out. ‘I pulled out a condom for safe sex as I’m ambassador for safe sex, because of the alcohol I couldn’t perform too well, which is embarrassing to say. ‘We lay down and fell asleep and I can remember waking up to a knock at the door, it was the girl and she was with a male member of staff. ‘She said she wanted to look for her phone. She left and then I woke again in the morning to a knock at the door and it was the police.’ The singer, 32, is currently standing trial on charge of raping a woman in a hotel in December 2016 (Picture: PA) The police interview also detailed how he responded when he told about the allegations made by the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons. Williams went on: ‘I am feeling bewildered at this whole thing. I do feel taken advantage of. ‘I just feel like a musician, an artist that has been put into a position where they have been taken advantage of.’ It comes after Williams’ accuser detailed the alleged rape, claiming she ‘lay like a dead body’. Williams found fame on The X Factor with JLS, made up of Williams, Marvin Humes, JB Gill and Aston Merrygold (Picture: REX) A recording from her police interview was also played to Wolverhampton Crown Court, in which she said: ‘In the blink of an eye my pants were off. The whole time I was telling him to get off me, “f**k off”, but he was not having it. ‘He was making gross remarks about my body. I was crying, I could not comprehend it any more. It was horrible, not feeling like you have any self-control in your body. It was really bad. I lay like a dead body for a bit. I just wanted it to be over.’ She added: ‘I was quite scared but not terrified. I felt more pathetic and weak. It kills your confidence. It kills everything. I felt worthless.’ The trial continues.
