Alexander Wang Speaks Out Against Sexual Assault Allegations

327354 1432622 updates

Popular fashion designer Alexander Wang has been in the headlines lately for alleged sexual assault. A Twitter account titled, “Sh*t Model Management” has posted a thread of accusations towards Wang supposedly coming from the numerous amount of models he sexually assaulted.

The allegations state that Wang gave the models MDMA without them knowing. The list of allegations has been the reason why Wang has been recently blacklisted from certain events.

Up until yesterday, Wang hasn’t spoken on the allegations. The fashion designer is denying the accusations and plans to seek legal action against those who are involved.

“Over the last few days, I have been on the receiving end of baseless and grotesquely false accusations. These claims have been wrongfully amplified by social media accounts infamous for posting defamatory material from undisclosed and/or anonymous sources with zero evidence or any fact-checking whatsoever,” Wang begins.

“Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating.  I have never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that’s been alleged.  I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online.”

Pharrell Confirms Drake Had A Deal With Adidas

Drake Rumored to Release New Single with Bruno Mars Ahead of Album Release

Pharrell recently sat down for an interview with Drink Champs where he touched on a slew of topics. One of which was the Drake and Pusha T beef back in 2018. Pharrell confirmed in the interview, a long-standing rumor, that Drake had a deal with Adidas. However, that deal was eventually scrapped after Pusha outed the deal in “The Story Of Adidon.”

For a refresher, 2018 was the year Drake lost his feud with Pusha T. Push had dropped Daytona, where on the track “Infrared” he took shots at Lil Wayne’s career and Drake’s allegations of ghostwriting. Drake, who was preparing for an album release, sought to stir the pot a little bit by responding to Push on “Duppy Freestyle.” However, Drake mainly took shots at Kanye and name-dropped Push’s wife, Virginia Williams. This prompted Push to respond in “The Story of Adidon.” Push outed Drake’s family issues, announced that Drake had a son that he was “hiding,” and that he was going to announce his kid along with his Adidas rollout.

After that, Drake’s deal with Adidas went silent. Nobody at Adidas talked about it, and this past weekend, Drizzy’s NOCTA Nike collaboration dropped.

Pharrell is the first person at Adidas to publicly confirm that Drizzy did in fact have a deal with the German sneaker company.

“He did. He did have a deal there. But again, all of this was unbeknownst to me,” said Pharrell. “Drake told me that he had a situation there, but I didn’t know that any of this would ever come up.”

In regards to the beef, Pharrell said that seeing his longtime collaborator, Push, beef with Drake made him disappointed. He had hoped to one day produce a collaboration between them, but now that idea is out the window.

You can watch the full interview below.
