Alexander Wang claims all sexual assault allegations levelled against him are untrue.

The fashion designer issued his statement to The New York Times days after Owen Mooney, a male model, revealed that Wang groped him in a crowded night club via TikTok. "I never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that's been alleged," Wang wrote. "I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online." More accusations began rolling in after Mooney's viral video, where folks began to speak up about being drugged with MDMA-laced water; forced to drink beyond their limits; and raped. This a developing story and will be updated as soon as more information is released.

It then went on to explain that Tennant was unwell, and hence felt that she unable to go on despite all the love felt from those closest to her.
