A man who accused X Factor judge Louis Walsh of sexual assault has been charged with making false claims.
Leonard Watters, 24, of Navan, Co Meath, initially claimed that 58-year-old Walsh had groped him at the Krystle nightclub in Dublin after a Westlife concert in June.
He appeared in court yesterday in Dublin and is facing two charges of lying to gardai.
He was charged in June with one court of making a false statement on June 20th and the second charge relates to a statement he made to gardai on June 27th.
Walsh, who was questioned by police over the claims, denied the allegations from the start, calling them “wholly false”.
