David Garrett: I am being blackmailed

The violinist tells Die Welt today that a $12 million lawsuit by his porn-star ex-girlfriend is ‘absurd’:

I am going public, because I am being forced to. I have no other choice. She has made private things public against my will and I feel that she is blackmailing me. Ashley and I, we had been together from October 2014, she lived in my apartment in New York, where we often lived together when I was in town. I separated from her in February 2016…

This all adds up to blackmail. I am constantly asking myself at the moment: What kind of woman is this who I was so much in love with?! And when she now adds a photo as proof, where you can see a bruise above her rib – well I am not the person who caused this bruise.

  • So he paid for her while she was an escort, tried to make her his girlfriend even though she was still a pole dancer, and now he is surprised that she wants money? He didn’t make a good choice when he was 17 by ditching Deutsche Grammophon, and he certainly didn’t make a good one this time either. Tough luck!

    • Who are you to judge anyone? How many poor choices have you made. He has a right to defend himself. In any case, his private life is none of your business…troll.

      • We’re all free to judge, especially when someone who is a little famous does something so stupid and scandalous! Ugh!!!

      • As a fan of David Garrett from the time he started appearing, I feel it is my right to be
        disappointed about the news involving him and the porn star/pole dancer. I don’t see
        him as a man who would be abusive, however the fact that he even considered dating
        her after their initial meeting is concerning. He didn’t want to date a fan, really? Isn’t
        that better than this woman. He fooled his public into believing that he was a clean living
        guy who didn’t have a girlfriend or took any substances. The pictures of him and his
        girlfriend tell a different story. He looks stoned in a few, which leads me to believe he
        isn’t entirely honest. His appearance noticeably deteriorated in the past year which was very noticeable. I’m sure that this will go away after she is given hush money. However, there will always be a question as to whether he indeed is bisexual or that he prefers rough sex. If she made up all the allegations she is a pretty imaginative woman. His upbringing an extremely strict environment may be why he’s turned into a wild child. His site makes no mention of this situation, it seems they remove any reference by anyone posting comments about it.
        The Devil’s Violinist seems to fit him well these days. I truly hope that I’m completely off base, and he was just duped, but we’ll never know the truth.

        • He was just too lonely. Dating a fan was not a choice because he knew he could never be there for her, he was on tours all the time… That’s why his previous relationships never worked out… What this Ashley girl did to him is just evil. David must have learned his lesson. Thank God his career doesn’t go down hill because of this stupid girl. DG will always have my support.

      • There’s a vast difference between an exotic dancer and a porn star. What does that have to do with it? This woman is a porn star who performed sex acts on film… I’m sure she played David Garrett even meeting his parents , but in the end
        she betrayed him. It’s terrible what ends people will go to get money.

  • This makes him now the….quintessential “Millennial” soloist.

    Note how I will not use the word “artist”.

    • Clearly David is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. This has been amply demonstrated by his clumsy demolition of a Strad, his penchant for artless and cheesey arrangements and his rummage sale wardrobe. Yes, the man can play but calling him an “important violinist” is ludicrous. He’s a sideshow.

      • non vous ne connaissez pas son niveau d’interpretation dans le classique il est pas la par hazard, il pratique de la meilleure facon possible, c’est magnifique, c ‘est un maitre pour nous !!

    • He doesn’t fall into the “millennial” category. There are precise years where one is born and would be considered a “millennial”

  • Ashley could never have ever loved you David to do this to you for MONEY and a lot of it ~ no matter what.The entire scenario is unbelievable & sad in a twisted way. Sorry this nightmare is happening.At least you are speaking out & not allowing her to get away with this and just settling if these allegations are false. That says so much!

  • I’d happily let someone hit me in the ribs with a shovel for a bargain fee of $50,000.
    I’ll drink someone’s urine for $10,000.

    • “When you lay down with dogs you wake up with fleas.” Why would a handsome, gifted and intelligent man have to resort to using an escort service in the first place?

      • Ashley Youdan is a pathetic ambitious greedy and no dignity to the core. She has no conscience and a low life woman. If a person changed their minds that they want out of the relationship! Do you think it’s right to blackmailed the person? You cannot force a person to stayed by blackmailing them! It’s doesn’t matter who you are!! It’s immoral to sell your body and extorting people for her own advantage.. Is Kendall Karson is delusional illusionist who will used public/media to exposed someone privacy? Because she knows from the beginning that if she cannot be Mrs David Garrett?? Duh! I don’t think DG asked her to marry him?? Hmm! Or either or she have a motivation for blackmailing one way or another.. Oh yeah!! She’s making sure she got money for retirement soon coz she’s getting old!! Adults Industry is very competitive!! She want an easy money from a person who worked so hard for his money… God only can judge us and He knows who’s creating false story! I saw one of KK porno video recently last year… It’s sickening she doing a ROUGHING roughed SEX? What the hell, she’s blabbing about?? She have done it all!! Nook and cranny of sexual fetishes!!! David Garrett is genuinely talented virtuoso!!! He’s very smart and very innovative!! He’s one of the famous violinist in especially in Europe!! He’s used and taking advantage by conniving vindictive immoral woman!!

        • “He’s smart and very innovative.” Yeah, I guess you’re right if you consider dating a hooker/porn star smart and asking her to drink your urine counts as very innovative.

          • I own and listen to everyone of your albums and I love to watch you face as perform and express the music in your soul. Do not let this person drag you and your associates down.

            Enjoy your latest nephew! I am so happy that you took your mother with you on vacation. It reflects well on your true self.

            Let your manager or bodyguards arrange for you to gain access to private clubs located everywhere in the world. They are very exclusive and absolute privacy of membership is an absolute. Many if not most there have at least as much money as you do. NO ONE will expect to be paid, nor will they pay you. You will find many who will be just right for you for one night, or perhaps longer. Most of the clubs are linked across the world. Anyone who violates the privacy or other policies would be forbidden to all associated clubs. Please utilize these clubs. Thee people you will associate there will be known to you, but you must never divulge who they are. ENJOY!

    • When you date a porn star what do you expect?
      I’m disappointed & disgusted with him. Never read he was with a porn star, he always denied he was even dating. Essentially he’s been lieing to his fans… Good luck David, but frankly you set yourself up for this. Of all the women in the world you choose to get involved with this kind of woman. Doesn’t reflect well on you….

        • David Garrett had an abusive childhood. He has a constant pain and anger inside him. For that reason is such a good violinist… His violin/soul cries in each performance (metaphorically speaking). Usually girls with an abusive past are dealing the pain through eating disorders. But boys with an abusive past could have an abnormal sexuality.

          David Garrett cannot have a stable relationship with a normal lady not because he is on tours all the time but because he is broken. After all, sailors, pilots and others professionals are travelling frequently but they have families and friends.

          Because David Garrett does not have any friends either… A few years ago, a journalist asked him about his friends. David answered that his manager and his musical director were his best friends!! But, both of them are on the violinist΄s payroll… I wonder if David has any kind of relationship in his life without the obligation of payment… Because I suspect that he supports financially his entire family as well. I do not know how big is the impact of this situation in his self esteem.

          Even before the sex scandal, I was suspecting that he may has some kind of bizarre tastes in his personal life. It is almost impossible to deal such amount of inner pain without the “help” of addiction.

          Finally, I want to say that the worst part of his sex scandal it is not the vulgar details but that the fact he trusted -for the very first time in his life- a wrong woman. He exposed his soul and she destroyed him… From that point of view, David is extremely unlucky…

          No matter what I will always listen his music. After all, he is just a human being. He has the right to make mistakes, like all of us.

  • Sad & disappointing…I’ll never look at him in the same light… What did he expect ? Of all the women in the world he got involved with a porn star/escort. Hugh Grant repeat…He denied even
    dating anyone repeatedly… He may find up the road that she not only betrayed him, but she probably left him with a STD… I don’t care whether her allegations are true, this will stain his reputation…. Sad…

  • Before you judge someone, think about your own mistakes you gathered through the life and your judgements will become milder and milder. Clear, he is famous but he made a mistake that also infamous people do. So, what is the difference. DG is human being like all of us.

  • David Garrett is the best musician ..a prodigy ..go easy people ..he’s human too ..also naive ..stop this scandal now ..bury it ..let him continue to give us heavenly music

    • Totally agree with you. Media need sensations. They will blow sensational stuff around anybody and anything in order to develop their topics and make as always big MONEY. Our human task is not to allow them to do so. Because at the and they are after MONEY only, no matter who they are, sluts from agencies in NY or reporters from yellow press. Underneath they are the same cheep stuff.

  • Kendall Karson keep deleting all the comments in her Instagram… if she’s “Honesty is the best policy”??? Recently, she’s posting like “a clean act epic”… Enjoying all the attention? She sound so desperately need the money… Wow! She amazed me! Easy money for her but you know what ia low life thing do.. But then she’s not credible person.. She’s vindictive that will threatened people to go public if they don’t want pay her up?? KK is such “A” list professional con artist!!.. recording private conversations is morally wrong!! She’s the most notorious notable a hardcore porno actress in the Internet and like virus infecting the cyberspace! Most of all, she will lost nothing! She have no dignity, no integrity and no value!! Hungry and want fame and fortune!! It’s all about money… The way kk expressed herself so pretentious and trying hard to let people believe that she’s very smart… Well guess what, KK is very smart Coz she planned it all!! Either way (married or dumped) she want easy money!! I hope her soul will be saved… Eventually karma will get her… The saddest part medias are “piranhas” so hungry and greedy to get money out of a trashy story from a woman not credible!! I feel so bad for David Garrett… Unfortunately He did not think twice or the consequences of his action… I think, this is monstrous lesson to be learned faithfully… No doubt, DG is the most genuinely gifted talented violinist walked on this earth. God bless Him…

  • In life we do things, some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are and in the end, shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them, we wouldn’t be the person we are. So just live, make mistakes, have wonderful memories, but never second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly where it is you are going. David Garrett is only a human being have feelings and needs… He’s not a frog to be dissected as if he’s no brain!? DG is a very intelligent genius violinist and can do classical or crossover immensely flawless! If you see him played ESP his classical recital? Look closely how emotionally passionate DG performed and how fast his hand?? So light, tender and gentle

  • I was his property manager in New York City and I had no clue what he does for living but all I saw is a ton of drugs and sick amount of stuff for hard core sex, he is also well known in swingers community in NYC. Everything what Ashley says is true.

    • I grew up with the understanding that the world I lived in was one where people enjoyed a sort of freedom to communicate with each other in privacy, without it being monitored, without it being measured or analyzed or sort of judged by these shadowy figures or systems, any time they mention anything that travels across public lines. As far I understand wire tapping is illegal.. What Ashley Youdan doing is low than lowest human kind ever done… It’s retribution and greediness… You sound not confident with your words… Because you can be charge of slander…. If you are David property manager in his building you have no rights divulged any information to any of those people lives the same building as DG. Be very careful with your words….
      Edward Snowden

    • NYCGIRL…if you were truly a property manager, I doubt you’d be dumb enough to divulge people’s private matters..( um..who would leave drugs all over their appartment?) If you were truly his property manager, I would assume you would be under an order from the plaintiff’ s lawyers to keep silent and wait to testify in court. I think you are one of Ashley Youdan’s friends, waiting eagerly, with her,for your payday.

    • NYCGirl, you don’t know HIM David Garrett that his a famous violinist?? Holy Crap but you know his “a swinger”

  • ASÍ QUE LA KK ESTA DICIENDO QUE ES ADMINISTRADORA , BUENO CHICOS RECUERDEN QUE ELLAS AHORA ES AGENTE DE BIENES Y RAÍCES POR QUE D.G LA PUSO A ESTUDIAR ESO EL AÑO PASADO MIREN SU INSTAGRAM Y SU TWEETER Y VERÁN QUE YA ESTA AYUDANDO A VARIAS PORNO STAR A CONSEGUIR APARTAMENTOS Y OFRECE SUS SERVICIOS SEXUALES DISFRAZADOS, DE LLEVARLOS A BUSCAR PROPIEDADES EN NY. COMO NO PUEDE IR A UN MEDIO DE COMUNICACIÓN A DECIR : “REVISEN EL APARTAMENTO DE D.G POR QUE YO LE DEJE, DROGA GUARDADA ,AHÍ” AHORA SE METE EN PAGINAS COMO ESTAS Y CONTINÚA DIFAMANDO A D.G SE HACE PASAR, POR HOMBRE JA,JA,JA.KK TUS 15 MINUTOS DE FAMA , YA PASARON , VUELVE A LO TUYO CHICA! PELÍCULAS BARATAS DE SEXO Y A MENEAR TU CULO EN BARES DE MALA MUERTE DE LONG ISLAND

  • Human people make mistakes, often many times before learning from it. I don’t believe the woman, but regardless, she cannot take away the fact: David Garrett is a great violinist. If you don’t like his style, don’t listen. It takes a lifetime to play the violin the way he does, which is obviously where most of his energy and time goes. I Pray that he will make some good and honest friends to call on when he wants company.

  • His strict upbringing probably did this. I’m not defending Ms. Youdan, but his choice to contact an escort agency. I’m sure he learned a lesson from this. Many child celebritis do this when they get a bit older. He chose her and well, got screwed. And her pon videos are very hard core. She will do literally anything with anyone. I too, cannot quite see how he fell in love with her, except for her body. I saw an interview with her and she was certainly an airhead. I cannot see where anyone would call her intelligent. Well, maybe in the back stabbing department. But she’ll get paid something, and he should get a huge examination from a top doctor, and we’ll all move past this. Still love ya Garrett. Keep making your beautiful music…..

  • David I have been a huge fan and member of your fan club for a long time. I am old enough to be your mother David, my son could be your twin and did modeling too. Do not let these judgmental people get you down. What happens in your private life becomes public when you’re a celebrity which is not good when you make bad personal choices. This trashy woman is nothing but a user and you are getting old enough to know better. Find a good women with moral values who will understand your career marriage but love you enough to be your companion and ease your loneliness when you aren’t on the road. She is out there. Have a great year and be careful. Belynda

    • With all due respect, why would David Garrett choose a good woman with moral values? He has obviously chosen a life filled with prostitutes , cocaine and transsexuals. I’m not judging him, just stating the obvious. What would a good, moral woman do for him? I guess it would be a good career move for him. But for her, maybe not so good. Just ask Denise Richard’s how her marriage turned out with Charlie Sheen.

  • Dear Carp Girl,
    We are all not perfect and David Garrett is only a human being! He’s allowed to make mistakes and do whatever he wants!! Also learned from it!! bet David absolutely regretted how much the scandals affected his reputation. He allowed,Trusted AY and gave her a chance to changed her livelihood.. But She never showed and only takes advantage his kindness! It’s doesn’t matter! What’s AY profession BUT the thing was /is she love her lifestyle and don’t want to give it up.. The question is Who used Who??? David paid her very well!! While people in cyberspace can see her free or only paid a “buck” for a peep

  • Whoa, I don’t care about this scandal. Although I will say that it’s a cardinal rule you never fall in love with or marry a hoe! He is so damn dirty, having sex with her, he might as well have just gone and eaten his dinner off of a public toilet! Really? A PORN actress, ewww. I’m not sure a “nice” woman would want him inside of her after this woman and all the other “escorts” he’s admitted to being with. Dirty. Oh yeah, what I really wanted to say is, I read almost all of these comments and I must say most of you have very bad grammar/writing, that’s what I find shocking on here!

    • You sound exactly like AY an airhead!! Who are you criticizing the grammatical errors or whatever. We are not in school taking English 101.. why dont you and AY needs go take a course moral conduct 101.. will see you both past???

  • Just saw this scandal crap while searching to see if David was performing in the U.S.while I am on vaca.next month….well I think I understand why he has nothing scheduled here…wish I could see you perform regardless…Trust..in people now will be hard for you..but Karma is exactly what they say…obviously these opinionated commentators don’t live in glass houses(Lucky for them)Peace David**

  • espero que, ya que todo termino, feliz mente en los tribunales, se consiga una buena novia, pero eso si , que no le cachos
    no me estan permitiendo enviar este escrito? porque?

  • People Can’t be more shocked only couse they give him a status of a god or an idol or well not a “regular” human being. Come on guys, yes he should have been much carful, yes he should have thought much more befure acting but he is human and sadley a very lonely one 🙁
    Thinking of no one to call to for dinner or talk to so you need to pay for it, if what he saysits true is very sad. Even paying for sex its sad. Maybe he thought if its throw an escort agencey its much safer then just meet someone on the street, u can never know. So i say since only him can know the reason and if its all legal, we all should leave it behind and focus om music cause this is why he became famus after all. Oh and remmember (if david is actually read something) THERE IS NO BAD PUBLICITY!! The kardetians made milions of it 😉 love from israel

    • Its pathetic, how die hard fans make excuses for Garrett’s behaviour. Some like to claim its his parents fault. REALLY? He’s approaching middle age. He’s responsible for his own choices, NO ONE ELSE. Or, how about this excuse , he was lonely. REALLY? He had a beautiful girlfriend in Germany , named Bianca , at the same time he was cheating with the porn star. His grandstanding about how he was going to fight in court against all of the “allegations” Youdan made against him. REALLY? It appears he quietly paid to make all of the “allegations” disappear. Give me a break

  • Larissa Marolt está con David Garrett !! el 22 de Febrero, los vieron juntos, los dos en la ciudad de Nueva York, eran realmente muy íntima entre sí. Se puede decir que algo está funcionando!. Al parecer le vuelve a gustar otra vez las rubias. Personalmente de ella no me gusta su rostro ,tiene cara de caballo, es muy narizgona

  • I’m a huge fan of DG. Have been following him since he first came out in Europe. I can’t imagine him being disrespectful to women. I’ve seen so many interviews with him. He just doesn’t fit that profile. I hope that everything turns out well for him. I’m not here to judge him. I’m here to support him. Good luck!
    Viel Glück!!

  • Judge not…lest ye be judged. Just listen to the wonderful music and send good thoughts to those feeling pain. No one has the rite to judge another…thru the course of their lives, their future actions will be judgement itself.
