LONDON - Jack Tweed, the bereaved husband of late British reality television star Jade Goody, was charged with one count of rape on Saturday, police said.
The 22-year-old widower was arrested Friday following a complaint from a young woman. A second man has been bailed pending further inquiries, while a third man, aged 25, has also been arrested.
Tweed is due to appear in custody at Redbridge Magistrates' Court in east London later Saturday.
The alleged incident took place at a house in Redbridge after the woman apparently met the men in a central London club late Thursday.
Tweed has spoken widely about how he has struggled to come to terms with Goody's death and admitted turning to alcohol.
Goody, who died of cervical cancer on March 22 aged 27, found fame after appearing on the British version of the "Big Brother" reality television show in 2002, transforming her 15 minutes of fame into a full-time celebrity career.
She released an autobiography, a perfume and an exercise video, and saw her notoriety go global when she subjected Indian film star Shilpa Shetty to racist bullying on "Celebrity Big Brother" in 2007.
The mother of two's death sparked worldwide interest.
