Brockhampton’s Ameer Vann Responds To Sexual Misconduct & Rape Allegations

Rhett Rowan accuses the performer of emotional abuse and having sex with a minor.

(AllHipHop News) It's been a big year for the Hip Hop collective known as Brockhampton. The Kevin Abstract-led “boy band” signed a record deal with RCA and announced a new album titled Puppy was landing in June.

Unfortunately, Brockhampton is now in the news for other reasons. Group member Ameer Vann is being accused of sexual misconduct and statutory rape.

Singer Rhett Rowan claimed she was once in a relationship with Vann and alleged he was emotionally abusive. Rowan also tweeted, “AND can confirm he was having sex with a minor before he dated me in 2015."

The “Suede Interior” vocalist posted on Twitter:

Not to mention he outed & glamourized my eating disorder before anyone but him knew about it—he’s since deleted it from SC but the lyric went “throwing up in the bathroom/real sure not to get it on her Louis Vuitton or her Louboutins” I wish I had my old phone to prove it. AND can confirm he was having sex with a minor before he dated me in 2015. It was a complicated rltnship & I was undiagnosed of my mental illnesses so by no means was I a perfect girlfriend, but when we broke up Ameer said something to the effect of “I don’t love u anymore. I just wanted to control something.” P much summarizes the whole relationship. I’ve been SO afraid to say anything because of the huge fanbase, and since I’m a musician I don’t want it to seem like I’m trying to ride coattails. But ex members of BH have since reached out and said they’re sorry for witnessing it & not say anything.

Vann responded to the accusations in a series of tweets. He wrote:

I am sorry to the people I've hurt and the fans I've disappointed. I've been in relationships where I've f-cked up and disrespected my partners. I've cheated and been dismissive to my exes. Throughout the past 3 years I've been working hard to reflect on myself and seek out help. It continues to be a learning process every day. In response to the claims of emotional and sexual abuse: although my behavior has been selfish, childish, and unkind, I have never criminally harmed anyone or disrespected their boundaries. I have never had relations with a minor or violated anybody's consent. I'm sorry for cheating. I'm sorry for lying and letting my friends down. I'm sorry for placing my group mates in a difficult situation by not speaking to them about my past experiences earlier. I always hoped to set a good example to my fans. Apologies aren't enough. I really hope I can be an example of somebody who learned to grow from his mistakes and become a better person.

Rowan then returned to Twitter to respond to Vann’s statement by writing:

that’s cute cause actually you emotionally ABUSED and manipulated me:) in bed, in your car, in the grassy area where we listened to phil collins, on facetime, in the bh house, in your own home, in New York. maybe look up “how to tell if you’re emotionally abusing someone.” AND YOU TOLD ME HER PARENTS WERE AFTER YOU CAUSE SHE WAS A MINOR. Stop lying to yourself and your poor fans. You’re only doing yourself a bigass karmic disservice.
