LONDON, June 29 (UPI) -- The man British singer Amy Winehouse was dating when she died last year has been charged in London with suspicion of rape, authorities said.

Reg Traviss, a 35-year-old film director, was arrested Thursday for two incidents that allegedly occurred in January. He denies the allegations and is due to appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court in London July 17, The Sun newspaper reported.

No other details regarding the alleged crimes were immediately available.

Traviss began dating Winehouse in June 2010. The Grammy Award-winning recording artist died of alcohol poisoning last summer at age 27 after years of battling addictions to drugs and alcohol.
