Elephant Man ... The trial could not begin because there is another court case taking place.

The rape trial of dancehall entertainer Elephant Man failed to get under way in the Home Circuit Court today.

The trial could not begin because there is another court case taking place.

The trial has now been scheduled for February 8, 2016.

The entertainer's bail was extended.

Elephant Man, whose real name is Oneil Bryan, has been charged with rape stemming from a January 2012 incident.

He is being accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his Hillcrest Avenue home in St Andrew.
