The official Twitter account of former WWE star James Ellsworth issued a statement on Friday evening, on his behalf of his attorney, “categorically” denying recent online allegations brought against him this week.
Ellsworth, who was released from WWE last November and has continued to make on-and-off appearances for the company, was accused of sending nude photos of himself to a 16-year-old girl after following her on Twitter and later adding her on Snapchat.
He quickly denied the accusations in a statement that read:
My client, James Morris, known publicly and professionally as James Ellsworth has become aware of a number of baseless allegations. Mr. Morris has the utmost respect for women and categorically denies these inflammatory and despicable accusations. Bates & Garcia, Attorneys at Law
