Ansel Elgort denies sexual assault allegations, says 'I had a brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship'

In a statement released on Sunday, June 22, Ansel Elgort said, “I was distressed to see the social media posts about me that have been circulating in the past 24 hours. I cannot claim to understand Gabby’s feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened. I have never and would never assault anyone.”

“What is true is that in New York in 2014, when I was 20, Gabby and I had a brief, legal and entirely consensual relationship," he further wrote, "Unfortunately, I did not handle the breakup well. I stopped responding to her, which is an immature and cruel thing to do to someone. I know this belated apology does not absolve me of my unacceptable behavior when I disappeared. As I look back at my attitude, I am disgusted and deeply ashamed of the way I acted. I am truly sorry. I know I must continue to reflect, learn, and work to grow in empathy.”

In a deleted tweet, the Twitter user revealed how she met Ansel Elgort as a fan when she was 17 (age of consent in New York is 17) and he was 20. “When it happened instead of asking me if I wanted to stop having sex knowing it was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were ‘ we need to break you in,’” she wrote, according to The Wrap. “I disassociated myself and just felt like my mind was gone I was in shock.”
