That allegation has been followed by testimony from other girls believed to be linked to the case, which was first opened months earlier.
Omri Hayoon, the blogger who broke the case by violating a gag order last Wednesday, was questioned under caution by police over the weekend on suspicion of obstruction of justice.
On Saturday night he issued a complaint to Tel Aviv police saying that he feels that his life is in danger because of what he said was incitement against him, largely from prominent public-relations man Rani Rahav, who in recent days has been outspoken in his criticism of Hayoon.
The singer, for his part, said during a concert in Tel Aviv on Thursday night that “I had a difficult day, I could have canceled, but music conquers all.”
People close to the singer have said that in the midst of the controversy he plans to continue his public and TV appearances and will not make any cancellations.
