In the last 24 hours accusations of infidelity and sexual and emotional abuse have been made against me.
Last October, while in a relationship, I had sex with a person who at one point, if not at that time, considered themselves to be a fan of my music and online persona. This happened after a gig we both attended with mutual friends (I was not performing) after at least one other social interaction without the attached stigma of fan/creator.
Over the following eight months we engaged in sexual activity on a number of occasions, the last of which was the result of me pressuring her after I had been repeatedly told to stop. Over the course of those eight months I treated her appallingly, manipulated her, and behaved in an extremely misogynistic way towards her.
Without going into detail about those encounters or the conversations between us, that is the extent of what happened.
I am deeply sorry to everyone involved, and to those whose trust I have broken or who are disappointed in me. I will be making every effort to address and change my behaviour.
As far as the near future is concerned, I will no longer be attending Summer in the City, and will be taking a break from social media and youtube.
In light of these accusations a person has taken it upon themselves to release information about my family, and the address of my family home. Please, I urge you not to spread this information or drag my family into this. They are aware of what I have done, and they do not deserve to be harassed.
