Nadja Benaissa: German star from 'No Angels' arrested in HIV case
Nadja Benaissa, 26, the German star from the country's most successful girl group 'No Angels', has been arrested on suspicion of sleeping with a few partners and not telling them she is HIV positive. She apparently had unprotected sex with three men, one of which has tested positive for HIV as well, but Benaissa did not tell them.
She was arrested in Frankfurt before she was set to perform a solo concert, and now she faces charges of grievous bodily harm.
The prosecutor's office in the western town of Darmstadt said Ms Benaissa had been detained because of the "urgent suspicion" that she slept with three people between 2004 and 2006, without telling them she was HIV-positive.
No Angles started in 2000 on the TV show Popstars, and is Germany's most successful girl band.
