The American countertenor has issued a statement denying any relationship with a young singer who accused him and his partner of rape.
Here’s the full text of his denial, issued through a PR:
Countertenor David Daniels denies allegations in civil complaint. Vows to defend his reputation.
“These allegations are both false and malicious. I have never had a physical relationship with the individual mentioned in this complaint. The events alleged here never happened and I intend to defend my reputation. I am an openly gay man who has been married to a wonderful partner for the past four years. It pains me that someone, for reasons that I cannot fathom, would attempt to destroy my career, the program at Michigan and all that I hold dear.”
