Through a new video shared in networks, Drake Bell tries to explain his current situation, ensuring that all the accusations against him are false.
Much of the news that you have been hearing, most of the news that you have heard recently is completely false and wrong and I feel like I owe you an explanation. I know this has moved very fast for you, but for me, it has been a three-year exhaustive investigation of every false claim that has been made. And it’s not me who is telling you that the claims are false, but the state of Ohio that has proven the claims to be false. If these statements were remotely true, my situation would be very different. I wouldn’t be here at home with my wife and son.
In the material, the singer-songwriter thanks the fans who believed in him from the beginning and asks the rest not to be carried away by the misleading headlines of other media, to study the real information and draw their own conclusions.
When I was presented with a plea deal because of the messages, I felt like it was the best way to get this over with quickly and that everyone involved could move on and get me back to doing what I love. I want to thank everyone who saw through the lies and did their research and looked at my case and saw what it was, instead of all this media confusion. Don’t believe the media from the start. It’s a lot of clickbait. Do your own research and draw conclusions.
