MOORHEAD – Harold’s on Main has parted ways with co-owner Sean Tillmann, the Twin Cities singer better known as Har Mar Superstar, after learning of the sexual assault allegations against him.
Moorhead Bar, 1330 Main Ave., posted on Facebook Friday morning, March 26:
“At Harold’s, we believe in women. We take the allegations against our business partner Sean Tillmann very seriously. Upon learning of these allegations last week, we promptly requested Sean’s resignation and immediate termination of our business. “
Complaints against Tillmann began to surface around the Twin Cities on social media last week, and on Thursday, March 25, a statement from “a collective of survivors” was posted on Twitter.
Also Thursday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported more details about the allegations.
“Three women gave detailed reports to the Star Tribune of incidents of assault or stalking between 2014 and 2017, saying that Tillmann aggressively proposed sex to them and inappropriately grabbed or touched them,” the story reads.
On Thursday night, Tillmann released a statement and admitted “harmful, abusive and selfish conduct” but denied a 2016 sexual assault charge.
Tillmann had been involved since Harold’s opened in 2019 and occasionally performed at the bar and at The Aquarium in downtown Fargo.
At live shows, the singer often took off his underwear and jumped into the crowd to dance.
