Country singer Kata Hay, a former “The Voice” contestant, has been arrested for allegedly having sexual conduct with her friend’s son…..according to TMZ.
Hay was arrested on Tuesday in Sumner County, TN. According to court documents, the alleged incident started with the 35-year-old singer making sexual comments about a 16-year-old boy in front of his parents. Hay had been a guest at their home for an undisclosed amount of time, according to police.
The teen boy claims the comments led to Kata forcing him to touch her inappropriately multiple times against his wishes. He also claims the country singer “made out” with him.
The 16-year-old’s mother told authorities she confronted Kata, and recorded their convo before ordering her to leave the home. According to the docs, the mother’s recording includes Hay acknowledging the incident had occurred.
It’s been noted Hay seemed to be under the influence during the confrontation, at least according to the mother.
The singer — who made the ‘Voice’ top 20 back in 2016 — was arrested, and also processed for a probation violation related to a separate DUI case.
Hay told TMZ, “As you know a charge is not a conviction,” and she declined any further comment on the case.
