“After our breakup, I learned about Alexis’ long history of predatory and abusive/exploitative behavior toward women, for which he is well-known in certain areas, and which has been corroborated by multiple people including a long-term ex-partner.”
“These incidents range from s*xual misconduct and s*xual relationships with subordinates at work, se*ual harassment, ultimatums, and s*xual assault. Multiple peers and women performers have spoken to me about uncomfortable experiences with him. Alexis establishes trust with vulnerable women and then exploits them s*xually. I learned that this behavior continued throughout our relationship and after he entered recovery.”
Alexis denied Kristin’s allegations, saying,
“I absolutely did not engage in any form of abusive behavior towards Kristin. Kristin is a person that I loved and cared deeply for, however, our relationship was unhealthy for both of us. I can assure anyone reading this that I absolutely did not abuse her, mentally or physically. I am investigating legal options.”
“As a result of this relationship, my quality of life decreased significantly. I suffered enormous psychological and physical damage. I continue to do physical therapy to treat ongoing issues with my spine and am in intensive therapy.”
