(Scroll down for video) A popular photographer of the United Kingdom, was found dead in his home in France, following accusations of child rape, according to police.

83-year-old David Hamilton, who became popular for taking photographs of nude underage girls, was found dead in his home in Paris on Friday.

A bottle of prescription drugs was found next to his body.

Recently, 43-year-old Flavie Flament, who is a popular radio personality, claimed that she was raped by Hamilton, when she was just 13 years old.

Flament worked as a child model when she was photographed and raped by Hamilton. Last week, Hamilton denied the allegations, and threatened to sue Flament, but on Friday, he committed suicide.

Flament revealed that Hamilton had raped her after three other women contacted her, saying that they were raped when they were child models.

Flament said that Hamilton raped her in the shower of his apartment after seeing her in a nudist resort, where she was on vacation with her parents.

Hamilton confirmed that Flament had been his model, but denied the allegations, saying that he has not done anything inappropriate.
