Thursday, October 11, 2018 • Tamil Comments

In continuation of Chinmayi's shocking allegations of sexual misconduct by legendary lyricist Vairamuthu, the singer went on air in a national news channel explaining the incident.  According to Chinmayi, Vairamuthu groped her in his office in Chennai and she ran out losing a slipper as well.  She was seventeen or eighteen at that time and didn't have the courage to expose the powerful man.

Earlier she had posted another incident "Year 2005/2006 maybe. Veezhamattom. An album for Srilankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir. I dont remember if it was a book or an album release or both now; the performances and launch happened in Switzerland in (Bern / Zurich maybe). We sang. We went to Switzerland. We performed. Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back.  The organizer(I dont remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne.  I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You wont have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down, career vendam mannum vendam. Demanded an earlier flight to India and came back.
