“I can’t say I understand Gabby’s feelings, but his 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 years old, Gabby and I had a brief, legal and fully consensual relationship.

“Unfortunately, I did not handle the breakup well. I stopped responding to her, that is immature and cruel thing to do to someone.
