Ansel Elgort Releases a Statement About Recent Allegations Made Against Him

Ansel Elgort has broken his silence in regards to the recent allegations made against him.

The 26-year-old actor took to his Instagram on Saturday (June 20) to release a statement responding to allegations that he sexually a girl named Gabby when she was 17-years-old back in 2014.

“I was distressed to see the social media posts about me that have been circulating in the past 24 hours,” Ansel wrote. “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.”

The day before, Gabby detailed an alleged situation that occurred after meeting Ansel online. In her post, Gabby described the alleged sexual encounter with Ansel, adding that “Years later I have PTSD, I have panic attacks, I go to therapy…I just want to heal and I want other girls who have been through the same s–t as me, you’re not alone.”

The account where the story was posted has now been deleted.

Ansel continued to share his side of his relationship with Gabby, saying that it was “entirely consensual.”

“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. Unfortunately, I did not handle the breakup well,” Ansel admitted. “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.”

Ansel concluded: “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.”
