Goody`s widower Tweed cleared of rape

London: Reality TV star Jade Goody`s widower Jack Tweed was cleared of raping a teenager by a jury in a London court on Monday.

Tweed, a 22-year-old club promoter, and his friend Anthony Davis were accused of raping the young student at Tweed`s east London home in the early hours of Sept. 4 last year.

Davis was also acquitted of rape, according to the Press Association.

Tweed was jailed for 12 weeks in April last year, shortly after his wife`s death, for assaulting a taxi driver.

Goody, who shot to fame after appearing on the Big Brother television show, died in March after a high profile fight against cancer.

She and Tweed married after doctors told her the cancer had spread and was terminal.
