Former Black Veil Brides Bassist Ashley Purdy Issues New Statements Regarding Mental And Sexual Abuse Allegations

As previously reported, Ashley Purdy (ex-Black Veil Brides) was recently accused of mental and sexual abuse by multiple women. Now, the bassist has addressed the allegations with two new statements.

Purdy said the following:

“The initial accusations and matter at hand are being investigated.
To address this one issue:
One tour, no one who is underage is allowed backstage of on buses, period.
We have a tour manager and security present at All times, who check ID’s to make sure you are 18+ or 21+ if drinking.
Its an insurance liability as a traveling business. This is standard procedure set in place to protect all parties.
Anything to the contrary is false.”

He later added:

“I am aware of certain derogatory statements being made on social media about my character. I sincerely believe that every woman has a right to be heard, trusted and respected. However, these statements have been worsening over time and I can assure you many false allegations have been made. I am mortified by what is being said.

At this time, despite my concern for everyone involved, I feel I have no choice but to proceed with legal action to quickly bring the truth to light. I am asking all my friends and fans to be patient and reserve judgment as my attorneys work to clear my name. Until then, I hope that everyone stays safe and knows I am doing everything possible to quickly and responsibly resolve this situation.”
