Ansel Elgort Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations

The web was rocked two days in the past when The Fault in Our Stars and Child Driver star Ansel Elgort was accused of sexual misconduct with a 17-year-old woman. The allegations got here through Twitter from somebody solely often called ‘Gabby’. In response to her, the pair had a relationship starting when she was 17, throughout which he requested nude images, took her virginity, tried to rearrange group intercourse along with her underage buddies and threatened her if she went public.

She stated:

“Ansel Elgort sexually assaulted me once I was 17… I didn’t assume he’d ever see my dm I used to be only a child and was a fan of him. So when it occurred as an alternative of asking me if I needed to cease having intercourse realizing it was my first time and I used to be sobbing in ache and I didn’t need to do it the one phrases that got here out of his mouth have been, ‘We have to break you in.’ I WASNT there in that second mentally. I dissociated myself and simply felt like my thoughts was gone and I used to be in shock.”

She went on to elucidate that she now has PTSD, panic assaults and attends remedy consequently – and posted a photograph of herself with Elgort to show that she’s not making this up. Elgort is one among Hollywood’s most promising younger actors, is ready to star in HBO Max’s Tokyo Vice and Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Facet Story and usually has a squeaky-clean public picture, so one thing like this might kill his profession. Now he’s responded through Instagram:

As a rebuttal to those that claimed Gabby was making this up wholesale, Elgort makes a full acknowledgement that the connection did in actual fact happen, claiming it was “temporary, authorized and consensual”. Because the age of consent in New York Metropolis is 17, it seems he’s appropriate when saying that this was authorized (although let’s face it, having to argue that’s by no means an excellent look). His model of the story claims these accusations are revenge for him ghosting her when he bought bored and that he would by no means behave like this ever once more.

Factor is, if the pair have been speaking over Twitter then there could be digital proof that Gabby’s story is true. One factor’s for certain, the story has break up the Ansel Elgort fan neighborhood proper down the center and will do severe injury to his profession whether or not or not they’re proved true.

As well as, the wonderful Child Driver now appears a bit extra tarnished. I may nearly cope with Kevin Spacey being within the film… but when the Ansel Elgort is confirmed to have behaved on this manner then I assume we’re going to have to put in writing it off. Sorry, Edgar Wright.
