London - The former boyfriend of the late British soul singer Amy Winehouse has been charged with two counts of rape, state prosecutors said on Thursday.

Reg Traviss, a film director who was in a relationship with Winehouse when she died, was arrested in April by London's Metropolitan Police.

Rebecca Mundy, a lawyer in the London rape and serious sexual offences unit of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "I have authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Reginald Traviss with two counts of rape."

She said the alleged offences took place between 29 December 2011 and 1 January 2012.

Traviss, 35, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London on 17 July.

Grammy-winner Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning at her home in north London in July 2011.
