He continued: “This week in court I took responsibility for all the verbal and intimate moments I shared with the parties involved…That’s it. In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully accused of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.”
“This is just nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting til I come out victorious,” he added.
