Transgender Naked Attraction star cleared in court of taxi theft and racially motivated attack

Transgender Naked Attraction contestant Amira Nadeem has been cleared of all charges after being accused of stealing a taxi from a driver in Scotland.

The 22-year-old appeared on the X-rated dating show in September 2019, briefly dating her choice of man but splitting before the episode aired.

On Monday, Nadeem stood accused at Glasgow Sheriff Court of being connected to a racially motivated attack on Muhammad Rashid, 40, after hailing his cab in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, this August.

Ahead of her appearance before the judge, Nadeem shared a selfie on Instagram, posting a devil face emoji with the simple caption: ‘Court.’

On the stand, Nadeem pleaded not guilty to the charges, which was accepted by the Crown.

Two others – Andrew Naismith, 23, and Gregor Eckert, 26 – pleaded guilty to the crime, admitting a racially motivated assault and car theft.

The pair were picked up in the Townhead area of Glasgow after a night out at around 2am, and started trouble with Rashid when he requested they not drink in his car.

Naismith and Eckert became racially abusive towards Rashid during the trip, and their violence became physical when he requested the pair pay for spilling alcohol in his cab, causing the backseats to get wet.

After getting out of the car, the pair beat up Rashid, punching and kicking him in the head, before Naismith stole the Peugeot Horizon vehicle and crashed it into a pharmacy.

Naismith pleaded guilty to stealing the taxi, driving without insurance or a licence, and breaching bail conditions.

Both men are now being held in custody awaiting sentencing.

Naked Attraction airs on Channel 4 and is available on Channel 4 On Demand.
