The Brockhampton member took to his Twitter to release a statement, apologizing to the people he hurt and his fans but denying any “criminal” behavior.

“I am sorry to the people I’ve hurt and the fans I’ve disappointed,” Vann wrote. “I’ve been in relationships where I’ve fucked up and disrespected my partners. I’ve cheated and been dismissive to my exes. Throughout the past 3 years I’ve been working hard to reflect on myself and seek out help. It continues to be a learning process every day.

“In response to the claims of emotional and sexual abuse: although my behavior has been selfish, childish, and unkind, I have never criminally harmed anyone or disrespected their boundaries. I have never had relations with a minor or violated anybody’s consent.”

He added, “I’m sorry for cheating. I’m sorry for lying and letting my friends down. I’m sorry for placing my group mates in a difficult situation by not speaking to them about my past experiences earlier. I always hoped to set a good example to my fans. Apologies aren’t enough. I really hope I can be an example of somebody who learned to grow from his mistakes and become a better person.”

AND YOU TOLD ME HER PARENTS WERE AFTER YOU CAUSE SHE WAS A MINOR. Stop lying to yourself and your poor fans. You’re only doing yourself a bigass karmic disservice.
