Last month, Don Malik officially apologized and admitted that he sexually harassed a high school student. The rapper was then expelled from his agency Daze Alive.
With the rise of the #MeToo movement, Don Malik's case regained attention and two women's accusations against Don Malik roamed the web.
After 20 days of silence, Don Malik spoke up again via Instagram. This time, he took back his previous statement and claimed he is innocent.
Don Malik claims sexual intercourse with both accusers was consensual and they did not express depressive emotions but rather delightful ones after their time together.
He stated, "That (first accuser) woman is the same age as me and we had normal consensual sexual intercourse. Also, she did not say 'I'm depressed' in the Kakao Talk messages after she had intercourse with me. She rather said 'It was good' and even mentioned her experiences with other men and complimented me. It's an embarrassing and personal conversation but I'm sharing the messages to reveal the truth."
As for the second accuser, Don Malik explained she stayed at his home for 2 nights and 3 days. He emphasized that all skinship occurred "normally" and she also texted him loveful messages, stating, "I miss you", "Oppa you were so warm."
However, Don Malik claims the two women suddenly went against him and accused him of sexual harassment. Don Malik expressed frustration, stating, "I have become a sexual harasser to the entire nation and I'm now dead musically and socially."
Don Malik explained he was forced by his agency to make false confessions. He said, "After the first accusation, I admitted to them and apologized as suggested by my agency, but at the time, things happened so suddenly and I was scared. I had no choice but to falsely admit it as I was mentally pressured by the great criticism at a young age."
Don Malik lastly added that he had sued the two accusers for defamation of character. He said, "I apologize to the fans and peers who have trusted in me. But please believe me and wait. I'll patiently participate in the investigation and clarify the truth."
