According to the Times, the 26-year-old was taken into custody in Frankfurt on April 11 just before she was slated to stage a solo performance, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The singer was remanded in custody following a judge's ruling that she may repeat her alleged offense, as per reports.

The public prosecutor's office in Darmstadt said Benaissa was being held because of the "urgent suspicion that the accused had unprotected sexual intercourse with three people in the years 2004 and 2006 without telling them beforehand that she was HIV positive".

The songwriter could face up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.
