The actor Ansel Elgort has opened up on sexual assault allegations made against him recently via social media and has apologised for his actions.
The news dropped last week that Elgort had been accused of sexual assault.
One of the really worrying things was that these claims were made by girls who were minors at the time.
These allegations were horrid and Elgort’s actions were pretty vile.
However, the actor has now broken his silence on the allegations made against him via his Instagram account.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this story develops, but at the moment it really doesn’t look good for Ansel Elgort.

If you didn’t hear what allegedly happened, this is the story.
The allegations were made by a girl who’s been referred to as ‘Gabby.’
According to her, the pair had a relationship beginning when she was 17.
During this ‘relationship’ Elgort requested nude photos, took her virginity, tried to arrange group sex with her underage friends and threatened her if she went public.
This is what she said about her time with Elgort:
“Ansel Elgort sexually assaulted me when I was 17… I didn’t think he’d ever see my dm I was just a kid and was a fan of him. So when it happened instead of asking me if I wanted to stop having sex knowing it was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it the only words that came out of his mouth were, ‘We need to break you in.’ I WASNT there in that moment mentally. I dissociated myself and just felt like my mind was gone and I was in shock.”
