A woman has sensationally claimed she was raped by a global pop star while he was on tour during the 1960s, when she was just a young teenager.

And now, more than 50 years on, Ms Barrett has levelled shocking claims against the unnamed award winning pop star to Studio 10 - claiming she was then forced to confront him again decades on.

Speaking out on Tuesday about the shocking sexual assault, Ms Barrett said she was hoping for an autograph with the star at the festival when the incident happened.
'Well, there was a few different bands there and all the bands had their own tent,' Ms Barrett said.
'It wasn't in a private area or anything like that, anyone could sort of walk up to the tent and most of the time the tent flap was open, so as I said we'd walk around to try to get an autograph.
'So I went up to... and asked him for his autograph and he signed the autograph and he was all very friendly and lovely.
'Then he said something like: "Oh, why don't you show me around, why don't we go for a little walk I haven't been here before".'
