Last week, intimate details of my life from 5-6 years ago were published online. The stories came as a shock and made me reflect on my own experience of the past. Until now, I was not informed of these grievances. I was not aware that these relationships were so upsetting for the women who came forward. It is a source of uttermost regret. I want to stress that I always engaged in relationships that were consensual, and certainly never entered any interaction ill-intentioned. However, it seems that these interactions were deeply distressing for the individuals concerned, and I want to sincerely apologize for any emotional pain that I may have caused.
