SIMON Le Bon rose to fame as the lead singer of English new wave and synthpop band Duran Duran. The frontman has been accused of sexually assaulting a fan at a record store at the height of the band's fame in 1995, a claim he's since denied .

DETROIT (WWJ) - A Northville attorney is representing a woman who claims that she was sexually assaulted a member of the 1980's pop band Duran Duran. A Los Angeles woman says she was working at a record store when Simon Le Bon came in for an autograph signing in April of 1995.

"I was also at the in-store event in 1995," she wrote, "and I can tell you that what he is being accused of DID NOT happen.

"Simon was never out of my sight that entire day, as each of the people on the Duran Duran team were 'assigned' to a band member to help with the record signing.

"Apart from anything else, as any fan knows, these kinds of events are a whirlwind of quick handshakes and photo calls which literally last a matter of seconds.

"The idea that he sat there, right next to his band mates, in front of a bunch of cameras, reaching behind him to sexually assault someone that day is simply ludicrous."

Speaking to the Detroit Free Press, Hariri's lawyer said Le Bon had pulled out of a proposed meeting with her client - which prompted her to go public with her story.

"We were within a hair's breath to do a sit-down with him," Sarah Prescott said.

"At first he was kind of, 'Yes, well, maybe later.' It was just not gonna happen. Her view was, 'Let's just let the sunlight in.'"
