James Ellsworth suddenly had a ton of controversy surrounding him at this point after he allegedly sent explicit images and videos to a 16-year-old fan. This has caused him to lose bookings, get fired from a popular YouTube show, and his Podcast was canceled as well.
Ellsworth has maintained his innocence and his attorneys released a statement against the baseless allegations against their client. But Ellsworth deleted his Facebook profile as he continues to prepare for the next wave due to these allegations, whatever it might be. We exclusively reported that the underage fan is considering pressing charges.
Dennis Farrell, former co-host of the #Duhcast with James Ellsworth released a statement and announcement to Bodyslam.net explaining the situation from their end.
“I’m deeply saddened by the news. I talked to James earlier today and the details of our conversation will remain private. However, I made the decision to part ways with the #DuhCast a show which I co-created along with James after talking to Petey Williams (who co-owns the Wrestling Perspective). We made the call to delete all DuhCast episodes without question to show our support not only for this young lady but for anyone who has been a victim of any kind.”
“Guilty or innocent I hope justice is served.”
It looks like Ellsworth has a lot of explaining ahead of him, but not many people who are going to be willing to stand by his side through this difficult circumstance he has found himself in.
We will keep you updated on this story as more develops.
