Super Fly Actor and rapper Kalan Walker once “manipulated” a 16-year-old girl into his apartment building to film an impromptu sex tape while her mother, who thought her daughter was up for headshots, waited outside. A prosecutor told jurors Wednesday in closed arguments at Walker’s serial rape trial in Los Angeles.
Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Wallace said that Walker was 22 at the time and told the girl that he could introduce her to famous rapper Drake, if she simply followed his lead, after Walker found Drake suspiciously 10 Named with most of the youth.

“There is no evidence that he had an affair with Drake. It was just something he used to lure girls into. It was a trap, a trick, his way of getting these girls,” Wallace tells WebMD. is Rolling stone.
Speaking to the jury, Wallace said that once Walker separated the teenage girl from her mother that day in 2017 and began asking questions about her career aspirations, she called for the girl to become a Victoria’s Secret model. captured the dream.
“We have to take more provocative pictures. We have to have sex with you a little bit,” Walker reportedly told the girl as he convinced her to take her underwear off, Wallace said.
“They talked about Drake, took him to the Drake party. What does he tell her? ‘Well, you know what? If you wanna do all these things, if you wanna be at parties with Drake ‘If you want to be a Victoria’s Secret model, you know what we have to do? We have to film a sex tape,'” Wallace said. “That’s a 22-year-old man saying to a 16-year-old girl, ‘ We have to film a sex tape.'”
The girl testified during the six-week trial that she protested “multiple times,” but Walker “doesn’t take it for granted,” Wallace said.
“He keeps insisting, pushing and talking about her,” Wallace said, “and eventually puts the girl down until she finally softens.” “He said, ‘Well, I thought:’ He knows all these people. He’s going to help me.’ I thought what I was doing was going to help my career.'”
Wallace said the law is clear that consent of a child is “never” a defense of statutory rape. “Minors don’t develop emotionally and mentally the same way adults do, and we know that,” Wallace said. “That’s why the kids are protected from the adult men. You don’t need to do much work on these. You promise them a few things and you get a naked 16-year-old girl who will let you in from behind.
“He molested her and sabotaged her dreams, engaging her in sex,” Wallace said. “He used her for his own pleasure, and then he abandoned her and his dreams.”
Walker, 27, is facing the prospect of life in prison if convicted of one of the charges. He pleaded not guilty to five counts of coercive rape—one pertaining to a different minor—two counts of rape by a narcotic, two counts of statutory rape, one count of sexual penetration by force, and one count of assault. .

Walker’s defense attorney, Andrew Flier, is due to give his closing argument on Thursday. He said during initial statements last month that Walker may have been a liar Lothario, but he never forced anyone to have sex.
“They fell for their BS. That’s the case. He made false promises, and they fell for it, and now is the time for revenge,” Flier said when the case began on March 8. “He gave up his integrity and his body, and that’s why he is here. It’s like returning Mr. Walker.”
According to Wallace, Walker’s first offense in the case was the forcible rape of a 16-year-old victim in 2013. Walker reportedly contacted the girl online and offered her $5,000 to appear in a music video. Wallace said that when the girl took the train to meet him, thinking she was going to sign a contract, Wallace cried and raped her, believing her life was in danger, Wallace said. .
“She didn’t expect to lose her virginity like this,” Wallace told the jury. “This memory and this trauma stick to him forever.”
Wallace said the “Achilles heel” of Walker’s defense is the alleged victim, who was raped in a parking lot outside a Tyga show at Los Angeles’ Belasco nightclub in January 2014. The woman testified that she was too drunk on the party bus to get benefits. Entered the show and was taken away in a car that promised to help her but eventually raped her. Wallace said the woman didn’t know who her attacker was until she was tested for rape and the DNA in her vaginal cavity matched that of Walker’s.
While Walker claims that her accusers consented to sex because they wanted to capitalize on her fame and industry ties, Wallace said the woman who raped Tyga outside the show was too drunk for her. And somehow, the attack happened before Walker could kings In 2017 alongside Halle Berry and played the role of gang member Juju Super FlyA 2018 action film produced by rapper Future, as a remake of the 1972 Blaxploitation film Super Fly,
Walker, who is out on bail, overheard Wallace’s closing argument from a defense table and leaned frequently to provide Flir through a plexiglass partition. He testified in his defense for several hours during the trial, Flier said.
“They put on a little show,” Wallace told jurors on Wednesday, with Walker “deliberately lying” on the stand, claiming he didn’t know his youngest victim was 16. “He memorized those lines, as an actor would do, to lie to you.”
Wallace showed jurors a text message sent by one of the alleged victims to Walker, saying, “I’m interested in modeling. I’m 16 and I’m 5’5.”
“It’s rock solid,” Wallace said.
