Posted by on June 25, 2020


Despite previously setting his social media account to private, former Black Veil Brides bassist Ashley Purdy has publicly responded to the series of allegations against him, including rape, sex with a minor, physical and verbal abuse, and more. Purdy denies these accusations as he shared the following statements:


“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.”


He continued:

“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 or 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. It’s an insurance liability as a traveling business. This is a standard procedure set in place to protect all parties. Anything to the contrary is false.”
