BORNS aka Garrett Clark Borns has denied allegations of sexual misconduct from Twitter users @Kaliforxnia and @Alyssaadanile. The allegations against the Michigan-born singer/songwriter began on September 21. BORNS denied the allegations in an Instagram post saying, “I am both hurt and angered over the disturbing and false allegations that have been spread over the past few days on social media. All of the relationships I have had were legal and consensual. They ended abruptly and that obviously caused hurt feelings, but for anyone to suggest anything beyond that is irresponsible.” @Kalifornixa wrote in response to BORNS’s explanation, “Your statement is contradicting. How can you say they’re false allegations & then add that all of the relationships you had were legal & consensual? (When we never said it was illegal). 3 years doesn’t end anything abruptly. If you knew it hurt me & others, where is the apology?” While @Alyssaadanile said, “I want to throw up,” and “This hurts more than anything you’ve ever done. you couldn’t even say sorry.”
