A woman who alleges Amy Winehouse's boyfriend twice raped her while she slept went out clubbing the next night, a court has heard.

The complainant, who has accused Reg Traviss, 35, of attacking her after she was so drunk she could not stand up, went out with friends on New Year's Eve last year.

The woman, a friend of the film director, told Southwark Crown Court: "I didn't want to be at home miserable thinking about it."

She alleges that Traviss, who was going out with the Back To Black singer when she died in July last year, raped her twice at his central London home in the early hours of December 31.

The woman, who cannot be named, said she woke up to find Traviss raping her.

The jury of six men and six women have heard he stopped when told to and they then had a glass of wine on his sofa and talked before the complainant trusted him to go back to bed with her.

She alleges she woke up a second time to find him raping her.

Today, after saying she waited three months for an Aids test, she told the court: "When I woke up that afternoon I was confused and not sure if it was a dream or I had been raped. When I left I didn't want to ask Reg in case it came across really rude.

"It was only when I got home I thought about it again and realised what had happened."

Traviss, supported in court by his brother and friends, denies two counts of rape. His case is that the sex was consensual.
