Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. The movie has already made about $410 million, according to Universal Pictures.Mohammad Hossain, an engineering student, also reportedly admitted to whipping and punching the woman, but claimed once again that his actions were all a part of a Fifty Shades of Grey reenactment, and not objected to by his sexual partner.
Hossain, a student ambassador to the alumni association, allegedly took the 19-year-old woman to his University of Illinois Chicago dorm room on Saturday afternoon. Police believe that Hossain asked the young woman to remove her clothing, which she consented to - but she opted to keep her bra and panties on. The alleged Fifty Shades of Grey rape victim also agreed to have her hands and legs tied with belts, according to Chicago Tribune.
The alleged Fifty Shades of Grey rapist used a necktie to cover the mouth of the young woman and then pushed a toboggan over her eyes, before he removed her underwear, Assistant State's Attorney Sarah Karr told the Cook County court.
Despite the alleged begging and cries from the University of Illinois female college student, Hossein allegedly continued to hold her arms behind her back and sexually assault her while she was tied to the bed. The woman reported the Fifty Shades of Grey rape to local police officers as soon as she left the dorm room. Mohammad Hossain remains behind bars on a $500,000 bail. The Fifty Shades of Grey fan's lawyer claims he thought the sex was consensual.
