What really happened?

According to the woman, she met Ansel back in 2014 right before she turned 17. He was in his 20s. She says as a fan she originally reached out to him and did not expect any replies from him. “I didn't think he'd ever see my dm I was just a kid and was a fan of him,” she wrote. As per reports, Ansel and the girl often engaged in Snapchatting and she also mentioned that he asked for nude photos.

She further wrote, “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."

She said she didn't come forward back then because the actor allegedly told her they could "ruin his career." "I sat there for months wondering what I did wrong. Wondering why I felt so used.”

The woman added, “Years later, I have PTSD, I have panic attacks I go to therapy.” 

The woman alleged in her post that the actor coerced her into having sex, and forced himself on her against her will. “He made me think this is how sex was supposed to be. I WAS SO YOUNG AND HE KNEW THAT. He as well said stuff like, ‘you’re going to be such a beautiful young lady when you’re older.” I was f—ing 17,” she wrote in her statement.
