Richard Branson has apologized after Joss Stone's backing singer accused him of inappropriate behavior.
Antonia Jenae, 44, told Britain's "The Sun" newspaper that the 67-year-old billionaire Virgin boss had rubbed his face in her breasts during a party on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands in 2010.
Branson had invited Joss and her band to his Caribbean home after they played the Go Green festival on nearby island Tortola. Jenae, who hails from Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, said he had been drinking but did not seem drunk.

An Englishman drunk? I've never heard of it!
"We were by the bar and he was saying bye to everyone. He came up to me and put his face in my breasts," the mother-of-two alleged. It was surreal, totally out of the blue. Joss and I were like, ‘What the hell was that?!’ Everyone was wondering why I wasn’t angry because I’m usually a firebrand. But I was just too shocked.”
She added: "His behavior was disgusting. I feel like it was sexual assault."
So how drunk was he?
A spokesman for Virgin Management apologized on Branson's behalf Saturday and said he had no recollection of the incident.
