Jake Paul on Allegation
‘Sexual assault accusations aren’t something that I, or anyone should ever take lightly, but to be crystal clear, this claim made against me is 100% false” Jake Paul wrote in a statement released to Twitter.
‘Not only have I never had any sexual relationship with this individual, but this claim is solely a manufactured accusation and a blatant attempt for attention during a highly visible fight week” Paul continued. “Make no mistake, I plan on pursuing this defamation of character case to the fullest extent of the law.”
“There are irreparable damages from these types of accusations, and more important, false allegation of this nature diminish those who have truly been victims of misconduct” the YouTuber turned boxer added.
